Here's how the Pittsburgh area media reported ClanDonnell's invasion:

Pittsburgh City Paper reported this:

The Pittsburgh Irish Festival turns 24 with a three-day party at the Riverplex. Attractions include beverage tastings (you don't say), an Irish marketplace, food and dance. The musical acts, ranging from traditional to contemporary, include Scythian, Screaming Orphans, Makem & Spain and Pittsburgh's own Bastard Bearded Irishmen. The history-themed programming includes an appearance by David McDonnell, who is touring nationally with his new book ClanDonnell, about ancestors who started as mercenaries and whose story reflects Ireland's strife-filled history.

Fox Channel 8 in Youngstown, Ohio ran this in its community calendar:

Critically acclaimed author David McDonnell will be at the Pittsburgh Irish Festival on September 6th and 7th to discuss his book and talk about Irish history. He will discuss "Why the Great Hunger" at the festival's Hedge School on both days. The author will be available for one-on-one sessions with patrons throughout the festival.
