Plans are well underway to hold a major reunion to mark the 30th anniversary of the closing of what was known as the Bacon Factory in Letterkenny.

The factory provided valuable employment for many people and was one of the best known companies in the town for many years.

The function will be held in Arena 7 on November 2nd.

One of the main organaisers is Shaun 'Swan'  O'Donnell (pictured) who has fond memories of his early days there.

"Starting working at 14 years of age in the factory is a experience that will be with me for ever," he said this week as he called on people in the area to contact those about the event and to spread the word.

Indeed, he described his former workmates as the "best bunch of people ever."

The old bacon factory was located on a 4.36 acre site off the Pearse Road. It was subsequently sold following its closure.
