Donegal

Letterkenny might surprise you! The largest town in Donegal, home to a thriving student population (and approx. 1300+ Pramerica employees!), it boasts all the amenities of a big town. Theatre, cultural centre, cinema, leisure centre, tennis club – these and many more are among the facilities you can enjoy while living here.

Perhaps more importantly, Letterkenny is the ideal staging point for excursions around Donegal, Ireland’s wildest and most beautiful corner. The nearest beach is a mere 20 minutes away. A further 15 minutes brings you to the 2nd best beach in the world! Mountains abound in this region, making it an ideal location for hiking. In the southwest of the county, we have the highest sea cliffs in Europe, while just an hour away is Bundoran, home to world-famous surf. There is also a thriving music and amateur drama scene, with two musical societies, an opera company, and many choirs of different types making use of the excellent facilities Letterkenny offers.

Partnering with Schools

Pramerica employees have taken part in the Skills at Work Programme and the Student Mentoring program operated under the Schools’ Business Partnership and the Student Mentoring programmes, facilitated by Business in the Community Ireland (BITCI). This is an excellent opportunity for staff to get involved in supporting senior cycle students through their final two years at school. Pramerica have established an excellent partnership with Mulroy College, Milford. Not only do the programmes benefit the students, but they also give volunteers the chance to develop their leadership, team-building, interpersonal and communication skills.
