Please remember that due to Covid-19 Echoes of Erin is also at risk of going off the air.  Right now there is no paid advertising and although there is sponsorship for The Ireland Report, that just is not enough to pay the monthly air time on WEDO.  If you are in a position to be generous, great!  You can make a check payable to Echoes of Erin and mail to above address.  If not I understand; the program will then be a casualty of life!
