“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 – 1st August 2021 at 7pm on C103.  (S.R.)

Where The Road Takes Me – Sunday 1st August

Dancing fanatics amongst you must be getting itchy feet at the moment.  The Foxtrots, quicksteps,  jives, waltzes and even the clingers may not be too far away, as you await the green light for a return to the dance floor. 

On ‘Where the road takes me’ this week John Greene offers a gentle reminder of what the dancing days of old were really like, just in case you had forgotten, which is highly unlikely. 

We meet two members of one of the most popular local dance bands ever to grace a dance-floor.

Twenty years of non-stop  performing must come with stories attached and there are plenty.   Mad cats, fires, political bomb scares and jiving in your underwear just add to the excitement. [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” at 7pm this Sunday on C103″

Michelle Runs in the 3000m Steeplechase this morning

The very best of luck to Michelle Finn who runs for Ireland in Heat 1 of the 3,000m steeplechase this morning at the Tokyo Olympics (1:40am Irish time). An unbelievable amount of hard work and commitment goes into qualifying and competing. We’ll be up late watching it.

Result: 9th in the heat for Michelle in a time of  9:36.26 which she was disappointed with, but it was 37C at trackside with high humidity. Brutal conditions, and a field that was strung out from the start were never contusive to a fast time. We’re all proud of you here.

Truly Historic Axe Very Kindly Presented to Millstreet Museum

As we recall the First Anniversary of the late John Kelleher of Mount Leader, Millstreet we remember an historic occasion in the 1960s when John found a perfectly shaped and unused Stone Axe when digging in his garden at Murphy’s Terrace, Millstreet.   On professional investigation by Archaeologists it was believed to have dated between 3500 and 2500 B.C..  We, at Millstreet Museum, are so delighted to accept this truly historic Stone Axe which is being very kindly presented by John’s wife, Margaret and son Jim.   This magnanimous gesture by the Kelleher Family of Mount Leader is greatly appreciated.   Within the next week the very precious historic Stone Axe will go on display at our Museum Centre in Carnegie Hall in memory of the late John Kelleher, gentleman supreme and sportsman par excellence.  Sincere thanks to Margaret and Jim for sharing such a treasure which will be admired for generations to come.  Here we illustrate the Stone Axe plus information from “Seanchas Dúthalla” in the 1970s.  (S.R.)

The Historic Stone Axe found at Murphy’s Terrace, Millstreet by the late John Kelleher in the 1960s. We place a €2 coin near the historic item to illustrate the size of the precious Stone Axe. Tap on the images to enlarge. (S.R.)

Lotto Plus 2 Winning Ticket Bought in Millstreet

Check your tickets !!! The winning €250,000 top prize for last night’s Lotto Plus 2 draw was purchased in Centra, West End, and hopefully it was someone local that has a lucky win.

The Irish Examiner interviewed assistant manager of the shop, Alan Dunne,  who said “there is a lot of excitement in the store. We have had a few customers in to eagerly check their tickets already and I’m sure there will be a good few more throughout the day too. It’s a lovely amount to win – I don’t think any of us would say no to that! It would be nice if it was someone local who has come into this bit of luck – hopefully they check their ticket soon and realise just how much it’s worth,”

Eily’s Report – 27th July

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

It doesn’t take us long to look for rain after we’ve been pleading for fine weather a short time before. What a shame it is that most of us need to have rain more than others. Since time began those involved in making their living from the land  often come in for great criticism because they need to get rain pretty often to grow the food and other necessities of life for man and beast. They love  fine weather like everybody else. Long sunny days helping them to work long hours in pursuit of their goals. But dry land produces no crops and they have look heaven wards for God’s free blessings on their labour. Last week were promised a fine spell, this week we are                  promised rain. Already we were getting warnings about the scarcity of water and the importance of not wasting it. Power washing and dripping taps were already being frowned upon. But then the chart looks like we’re about to change all that. As for me, I’m cleaning up my tubs and tanks and placing them under every down pipe in the hope that they will  fill up again and see my plants through the next dry spell.

“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 – 25th July 2021 at 7pm on C103.  (S.R.)

Where The Road Takes Me – Sunday 25th July

This week on Where the road takes me, John Greene continues and concludes a look at the judicial system of the 19th and early 20th centuries.  The programme also includes a look back at historic murders of the era and their outcome. 

This Week…….

Thomas Street in Mitchelstown in 1913 and the constant arguing of a father and son that eventually goes too far.

In Curraghmore in 1874, the brutal and cowardly murder and robbery of an elderly couple.  While local suspects were questioned, most people regarded it as the work of an opportunistic mobile serial killer. 

And in Rockmills near Castletownroche during  the height of the Land war, so called middle-men were regarded as more ruthless than landlords.  Motives and suspects are plenty in this brutal and depraved murder of a locally despised family.   But did they hang the real culprits, or was it a case of anyone will do.  [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” at 7pm this Sunday on C103″
