Echoes – Maeve Binchy & Irish Writers

Gordon Snell on ECHOES


2020 has been a year like no other. Home and friendship, both of which mattered so much to Maeve, have never been as important as they are today. ECHOES would have taken place this weekend, October 2nd-4th.

Recorded in September, Maeve’s husband Gordon Snell recalls the beginnings of the ECHOES festival at Dalkey Castle, how important supporting other writers was to Maeve, and how much their beloved Dalkey meant to them both. 

ECHOES, featuring a host of our favourite writers and performers talking about Ireland’s Hidden Stories, will be back in October 2021
