The GPS tracker is the first of its kind in Ireland, and gives you the ability to track your pizzas all the way from the oven to your gaff. The tracker opens to a live map at the delivery stage so you can track the progress of your driver.

There's even a countdown, so anyone on a time limit can prepare for the tasty arrival. We are ridiculously excited to try and test the new technology, is anyone else suddenly starving?

To order, check out the Domino's website or head into your local store. Those stunning Catalan Chicken and Chorizo pizzas are just €22 for a large, in case anyone's wondering. We know we were…


A man has been arrested in connection with the death of a 27-year-old woman in Donegal last night.

Gardaí sealed off the area in Forest Park in the village of Killygordon after being called to the scene.

Local reports on Friday morning stating that a person had been fatally wounded.

Sources then said the victim had died following the incident, with the body remaining at the scene.

Gardaí have since confirmed that a full investigation has been launched into the circumstances surrounding the death of the young woman.

A man in his 20s has been detained in Letterkenny Garda Station.

Three ambulances allegedly arrived at the house in the east of the county in the early hours of this morning, with children and other occupants leaving the house shortly afterwards.

A statement released by the Gardaí at 11:45am has stated;

“Gardaí are investigating the circumstances of the death of a woman in her 20s this morning the 4th of January 2019 at Forest Park, Killygordan, Co. Donegal. The woman was pronounced dead at the scene."

"The Office of the State Pathologist has been notified and the body remains at the scene pending an examination. The Garda Technical Bureau has been notified and will be carrying out a technical examination at the scene today.

"A man in his 20s has been arrested and is detained under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act 1984 in Letterkenny Garda Station. Investigations are ongoing.”

Patrick McGowan, who is the local county councillor in Killygordon, commented that; “All we know is that there has been a very serious incident and everyone in the locality is shocked."

“All we know is that somebody has been seriously hurt and Gardaí are awaiting the forensics team to arrive.”

He stated that locals are awaiting more information on the incident.



Gardaí in Donegal are currently investigating a road traffic accident which has left a 22-year-old man in a serious condition in Letterkenny University Hospital.

According to emerging reports, the single-vehicle collision occurred in Burnfoot, approximately five miles from Buncrana, in the early hours of this morning.

A Garda spokesman elaborated on the details, saying: "The collision occurred at approximately 3.10am on the 15th December on the main  Buncrana to Letterkenny Rd at Tieveban, Burnfoot." 

"The 4×4 collided with a stone wall. Emergency services attended the scene, the driver and sole occupant was seriously injured and taken by ambulance to Letterkenny University Hospital."

It has been established that diversions have been put in place and the road remains closed to facilitate a forensic examination.

Gardaí have issued an appeal to anyone who may have used that road between 2.50am and 3.20am this morning, and advised them to contact Buncrana Garda station on 074 9320540, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111 or any Garda station.



A chiropractic clinic in Co Donegal has made headlines this morning following the launch of its second annual Christmas toy appeal.

The Freedom Spinal Health Chiropractic in Letterkenny took to Facebook at the end of November to remind the public that on Friday December 15 they would be accepting toys instead of standard payment.

"On Friday December 15th we'll be holding our 2nd annual Christmas Toy Appeal. On this day instead of taking payment for care, we ask that people donate new, boxed toys of similar value," read their post.

"These toys will then be collected by St Vincent de Paul and distributed to local families in our community, who may otherwise go without."

Referring to their inaugural appeal, the clinic paid tribute to everyone who made it a success last year.

"Last year we were blown away by the generosity of people, not just those who are under care here, but we had many donations from people who are not patient's of the practice."

In recent days, chiropractor Anthony Lavin elaborated on the endeavour, and revealed that members of the public, outside of their patient list, had gotten involved.

"We had a lot of donations from people last year who don't come to our clinic, but wanted to support this great cause," he explained.

Ladies, this is wonderful.



An investigation is underway after a woman was sexually assaulted in Letterkenny in the early hours of this morning.

It's understood the alleged attack took place at Speer's Lane shortly before 2am on Sunday morning.

The area has been cordoned off and the victim is being treated at Letterkenny University Hospital.

A technical examination of the scene is being carried out by forensic officers.

A Garda spokesperson has said "investigations are ongoing".

Further details around the investigation are not yet known.


A hotel that has spent much of the last five years closed and disused is on the verge of reopening – as slick student accommodation.

Amid economic uncertainty and recession, the Gleneany House in Letterkenny closed its doors in 2011 – however its proximity to the Letterkenny Institute Of Technology has now given it a second lease of life.

Indeed, it has already been overhauled and spruced up, resulting in 24 en-suite rooms which each come with Wi-Fi, a dishwasher and microwaves.

There’s also free parking, a student lounge, launderette and 24-hour security. Additionally, a former hotel restaurant will shortly re-open to provide meals once term kicks-off again in a couple of weeks.

The local estate agent, Manus McGroddy, told the Irish Independent that the rooms offer “Carlsberg accommodation at Ryanair prices”.

“We have put a lot of work into it,” he added. “There is a definite shortage of student housing in Letterkenny and this will help to fill the gap.”

Mr McGroddy said more than half the rooms in the town centre building have already been snapped up.

“The hotel was lying empty. A lot of money has been invested in it and it now ticks all the boxes for students coming to Donegal.”

With room for 35 occupants, single rooms start at €60 a week, while doubles for students willing to share cost €80 – or €40 each.

With most extras included in the weekly rent, the only additional bill will be electricity.
