Joe Murphy, Cullen & New York

Joe Murphy, a native of Lisnaboy, Cullen, was among other things, the editor of the Irish Echo & Irish Voice, County Cork Association President. He given many people their start in America, and widened the door for many others. He passed away last Saturday. Below is a quick note on his  life, times and contributions, written by the County Cork Association of New York:

The Officers and Members of the County Cork BP&P Association mourn the passing of our esteemed Past President, Joe Murphy. Joe was called to his eternal reward on Saturday, October 5, 2019 surrounded by his loving family at his home in Whitestone, NY after a long illness. Community activist and scribe, Joe was one of the elder statesmen of the County Cork Association and, indeed, of the entire Irish American Community. A native of Cullen, Co. Cork, the youngest of ten siblings, Joe was educated in the local national school, the “North Mon” in Cork City, and St. Augustine’s College, in Dungarvan, Co. Waterford. He immigrated to the United States in 1956, first
to California and then to New York City. He continued his academic pursuits at Long Beach State College and at New York City’s Fordham University.
Joe first secured employment in the banking profession, working both for the Bank of America and the Bank of New York. In the 1970’s, he took a position as advertising director with the Irish Echo newspaper, in New York, for which he already wrote a popular weekly column. Joe broadened his journalistic experience as the New York correspondent for the, then, Cork Examiner, and also for RTE. In that capacity, he was proud to work as an analyst, with the late Michael O’Hehir, on the broadcasting of two National Football League finals from New York’s Gaelic Park.

Eily’s Report – 8th October

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

The Autumn chill is in the air but as we escaped the ravages of the hurricane, we can easily put on extra clothes to keep warm. Some people complained about the media saying that they over did the prediction of what was to come but it was some record that not one life was lost by the monster wind. It’s comforting to know that we have such a broad based array of advisory bodies to warn us in such detail of impending  forces of Nature. And we can only say a heartfelt word of thanks to all those who showed such an interest in our welfare.

Fire Safety Week starts on this Friday October 11th  and members of our local Brigade will be at our  shops  in the town to meet the public and chat with them about their work. It will give us all the  chance  to meet the people who are on call at all times in case  of fire outbreaks  or other  disasters.                    So please take advantage of this rare opportunity.

Many congratulations to Linda McAuliffe, daughter of Patsy and Angela who was among the students of Kerry ETB Radio, Broadcasting and Digital Journalism Course who won Gold and Bronze featuring the Sounds and Soundscapes of Kerry, entitled Clauis Ciarraí, Millstreet.

An important meeting of the Community Council will be held at the Wallis Arms Hotel tonight,starting at 8.30.   All members please attend.

Our Tidy Towns Committee want to thank all those who helped them to gain six more points in this years National Event and they are asking everybody to row in behind them in their effort to win silver next time round.   The time to start preparing is now. So please their goal, your goal for 2020.

A date for your diary – a mock wedding will take place in the Bush Bar on Saturday the 19th October  at 8 pm in aid of Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY). Invitations €10  Music by the Kelts, a good night assured.
