Russell Memorial Weekend Festival 2017
Thursday 23rd February 2017 | Monday 27th February 2017
The Russell Memorial Weekend is a traditional festival held in Doolin on the last weekend in February each year. The festival began in 1995 as a remembrance ceremony to Micho Russell, the world-famous traditional musician, who died in 1994. In 2006, and at the request of the Russell family, the festival was renamed the Russell Memorial Weekend in memory of the three Russell brothers and two sisters.
