Interest in the show has been so high that organiser Brí Carr says she has enough material to last another two weeks:

“The unbelievable interest of women with Donegal connections from all over the place means that over the next week, on the Wild Atlantic Women page, mini-concerts will be posted every day at 5pm, ending with a Thank You Concert on Sunday 17th January, when we hope to have reached our €2021 target!”
