Fondest Greetings dear listeners and I wish you all the very best on this beautiful warm sunny Tuesday morning.
Our Town has adopted what they call “the Millstreet StreetScape System”. Which means that in conjunction with Dulux Paint Company,a Colour scheme for the whole town has been drawn up. Paint being supplied at a reduced price by the makers and the scheme is sponsored by the Co. Council ,Our Community Council and the Town traders. They are asking every able-bodied member of our Community to come out and help with the painting.
A start was made last evening on the Wall of St Mary’s Cemetery on the approach road to the town. Power washing is being done ahead of the painters.
This wonderful project must be completed in 25 days.
Says Conor: ‘‘FIFA is doing a great job taking the game away from the people.’’ Two years ago, Irish-born Conor had an epiphany. After finishing work as a business analyst at Westpac in Kent Street, Sydney, he needed to kill time before training with Balmain Old Boys, who play in the Canterbury league. He typed ‘‘round-the-world ticket’’ into Google and volunteering abroad came up. ‘‘Guys, I’m moving to Rio,’’ he told his teammates when he arrived at training that night.
Conor, 39, now partners with two organisations in Rio. IASESPE, with which he helps children aged between three and 14, and Carlao’s Football Project, which involves a hundred kids. [read more …] “Conor Hartnett teaching Soccer in Rio de Janeiro”
The usual Tuesday night “Radio Treasures” which is normally broadcast from 9.30 to 11.00 pm will this week not be transmitted on Cork Music Station. Instead T.T. Howard, dedicated D.J. on CMS will extend his very popular programme until 11.00 pm which features lots of superb Country-and-Western music as well as some great Irish selections. It is hoped that “Radio Treasures” will resume next Tuesday at its usual 9.30 pm online radio slot. (S.R.)
