A cheque for €35,000 was handed over to the Red Cross in Letterkenny, Co Donegal this evening by the organisers of a concert held in aid of people affected by the recent floods in Inishowen.

The "Flood aid" concert featured Daniel O'Donnell and Nathan Carter and a host of country music stars who performed free of charge at the Aura Centre in Letterkenny on 3 September.

O'Donnell sent a video message to those at the presentation from Canada where he is on tour at the moment.

He thanked everyone involved in the concert which was organised at very short notice and said he was thrilled to be a part of it.

He said he hoped the money raised would help people affected by the floods get back on their feet.
