Echoes of Erin is a good place to spend your advertising dollars, especially if you have something Irish to sell or tell.

Don't be shy; give me a ring or send an email to check the benefits and features of advertising with me. Prices are very reasonable. Phone 412.781.6368 or Email: .

Remember Echoes of Erin is the nucleus for the Irish scene in Pittsburgh ; most events are listed on Dateline Irish. Topics of interest for Irish and American-Irish are discussed on the program; most likely you won't hear about some of these topics / issues on other main stream media.

February 6, 2011 marked the 22nd Anniversary of Echoes of Erin on WEDO.
