“Where the Road Takes Me” at 7pm this Sunday on C103

We thank Presenter, John Greene for advance information on this Sunday evening’s programme – 13th June 2021 at 7pm on C103.  (S.R.)

Where The Road Takes Me – Sunday 13th June

He’s been singing for over fifty years, and been more than adaptable to any challenges the ever-changing music industry has thrown at him. 

This week on Where the road takes me, Red Hurley joins John Greene to talk about the career that he loves, with a number of his songs included too.

There are hundreds to choose from, many of  which made it to No. 1 in the charts and many more the Top Ten. 

Representing Ireland in the Eurovision Song Contest is also up for discussion and why it would be a bad decision for the likes of Westlife and Kodaline to do the same.  And…..The tension while performing in England during the IRA’s bombing campaign in the 1980s.

An Invitation to Join the Sanctuary Runners Movement

An Invitation to Join the Sanctuary Runners Movement
Sanctuary Runners was established in 2018 to enable Irish residents to run alongside, and in solidarity with, people seeking asylum in Ireland.    You may have seen the movement featured in the national press recently. Over half of those who took part in this year’s virtual Cork City Marathon on 6th June were Sanctuary Runners. The team stretched from Tokyo to Paris and Cork to San Francisco.

We thank John Magee for this very interesting feature. (S.R.)

Efforts are being made to re-establish a Sanctuary Runners group in Millstreet. Niamh Ní Chonchuir who is Sanctuary Runners regional officer covering the Cork and Kerry area explained, We’d love to invite you to join us in setting up a Millstreet Sanctuary Runners’ group. Our aim is to build solidarity through sport bringing together citizens, migrants, asylum seekers & refugees.  If you would like to run, walk or jog with us in Millstreet please get in contact by email to info @sanctuaryrunners.ie.”

Eily’s Report – 8th June

Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a chairde, and welcome to my weekly report.

The first week of June is already over, in little over another week we will have the longest day of the year on June 21st.  Some years ago accompanied by  two family members we were delighted to be invited to Finland by a guest of my B&B to come and spend that mysterious night with him and his family. They set up the party on their island which was a short boat ride from the mainland. We didn’t go to bed, we wanted to experience the phenomenon first hand. It being so far North, nights can be cold in Finland  but our hosts made sure that we were fully supplied with padded zip up body suits to make sure that nothing was going to spoil the  occasion that we came so far from to see. There was no dawn. The previous day just continued on into the next. Days were brighter but nights were far from being dark and I found it hard to go to sleep but a couple on nights awake soon took care of it and we slept sound after that. During our stay we learned a lot about how they live in Finland and especially on an island. There is never a shortage of fresh fish, they use nets to keep them alive in the sea until they need them but only a few days supply at the time. No need to stock up, the sea is at hand all the time. The sea at that point was dotted with lots of similar islands and at midnight they all lit their fires and waved and greeted one another because of the night that was in it.

“Where the Road Takes Me” at 7pm this Sunday on C103

We thank Presenter, John Greene for advance information on this Sunday evening’s programme – 6th June 2021 at 7pm on C103.  (S.R.)

Where The Road Takes Me – Sunday 6th June

Once Flower Lodge, home to Cork Hibernians, Páirc Uí Rinn is now one of the GAA’s strongholds in Cork and named after one of the greatest hurlers of all time. 

Christy Ring was a very close friend of the late Paddy Martin, the Taoiseach’s father and on this week’s edition of ‘Where the road takes me’, Mícheál Martin joins John Greene in the Stadium to talk about his life and times. 

You’ll find the conversation moving swiftly from one subject to another.

Growing up in Turner’s Cross, soccer, hurling, dancing, the Gaeltacht, his international boxer father, becoming leader of his party and later Taoiseach, taking on the powerful tobacco industry and of course Covid-19 are some of the many subjects up for discussion.  [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” at 7pm this Sunday on C103″

What we Love – Art Exhibition

Herlihy’s Centra in the West End, and the Millstreet Primary Schools Parents Assn would like to thank the children from the Primary Schools for their Art work.  There is plenty of room for more Art, so its not too late to hand it in and it is definitely worth a visit as the pictures below don’t do the art justice.

Also the Parents Assn would like to remind everyone that the Go Fund Me page is still going and thank everyone who has given money so far.
