Music stars Daniel O'Donnell and Nathan Carter will perform at a charity concert in Letterkenny in aid of Co Donegal's flooding victims.

Flood Aid for Inishowen, which will take place at The Aura in Letterkenny on Sunday, has been organised to help those affected by last week's flooding.

It is estimated that as many as 500 homes could have been affected by the severe flooding in Donegal alone.

Several roads and bridges are still badly damaged after collapsing in the storm in the worst hit areas of Inishowen and Burnfoot.

Hundreds of homes were also badly damaged in areas in Co Londonderry, including Drumahoe and Eglinton.

Please come and show your support

Daniel O'Donnell announced he will be performing along with a star-studded line up.

He said all of the profits raised from the show will go to all the people who have suffered because of the floods.

Dominic and Barry Kirwan and Johnny Brady will also perform to raise funds.

Mr O'Donnell said: "We are hoping it will be a great turn out to make this a successful event. 

"The very fact that there will be a large number of people turning out and gathering together it will give the people of Inishowen and further afield great hope that things are being done and to make their plight heard."

Tickets are available at various outlets across Donegal and on Ticketmaster.
