In December 2001 Glamour magazine wrote a 4 page article about the Lisdoonvarna Matchmaking Festival and all that it entails. The article included interviews with visitors to the festival and quotes from Willy Daly the Matchmaker and his daughter Marie Daly, who has followed in her father’s footsteps. Marie is quoted as saying;
“Despite modern technology, it isn’t any easier these days for young people to meet up”
There is a mention of the Barbeque Championships which were held at the Burren Castle Hotel that year.
The article finishes off with a mention of the local nightclub the Q Club.
