The test centre at the Donegal GAA Centre, Convoy closes tonight at 7.pm. From tomorrow, the HSE will operate a Pop Up Walk-in Test Centres  at the GAA Club House in Carndonagh, F93 EF65. It will open from Tuesday May 11th to Thursday May 13th inclusive. Opening times will be from 11am to 7pm each day, no appointment is required and the service is free. Tests are available to all members of the public in the Inishowen area.

The Centre will be operated by the National Ambulance service and supported by Community Healthcare Organisation Area 1 and Public Health North West.  The service is for those who do not have COVID-19 symptoms and for people who are concerned that they may have been at risk of infection in the past two weeks. Children can get tested if they are accompanied by a parent or guardian. You must bring a photo ID with you and provide us with a mobile phone number so we can contact you with your results. The HSE urge members of the public who have symptoms to consult their GP to arrange a test, and to not avail of the walk-in facility. Anyone who has already scheduled a COVID-19 test is asked not to attend.

The Letterkenny Community Testing centre remains open also as a drive through GP/Public Health Referral and self referral testing centre and the Cleary Centre Donegal Town is also accepting both GP and Public Health referrals.

Once again you can use these free, walk-in COVID-19 testing services if you:

  • are aged 16 years and over;
  • are a child and are accompanied by a parent or guardian;
  • do not have symptoms of COVID-19 but would like to be tested; and,
  • have not tested positive for COVID-19 in the last six months.
