Our next “Radio Treasures” on Internet Radio Cork Music Station will be broadcast on American Independence Day – Tuesday 4th July 2017 from 9:30 to 11:00pm. Since we’ve now commenced transmitting on Internet Radio we note an increasing number of new Listeners. Much of this is because it is now much easier to access our Local Radio Station (broadcast globally) once one has an Internet Radio. A reminder of the steps to follow to access:
Turn on Internet Radio. Go to Menu…to All Stations…Local Ireland…Country…And there you will find Cork Music Station. Save it on a specific button so that one can just press that selected button anytime to access our Radio Station. Happy Listening! (S.R.)
Dia is mhuire diobh go leir a cairde and welcome to my weekly report.
The 5 mile road race in memory of the late great Willie Neenan which was held last Friday evening was proof of the fact the he is well remembered by the people of his native Millstreet. The weather was great and the buzz around the town had to be seen to be believed. There was no shortage of competitors and no shortage of stewards. Everybody rowed in, in whatever way they could to make the event truly momentous. The Band was out, the town was a maze of stop signs and go signs and stewards in hi-viz jackets to make sure that all went without a hitch. Some people walked the route while others ran, some at great speed. The fastest I heard completed the 5 mile run in 21 minutes. Well done to all concerned and it was lovely to see so much co-operation and merriment in memory of the well-known Willie Neenan.
Our Pipe band played at the Munster Final which took place in Killarney on Sunday.
Cork’s nine year wait for a Munster Minor Hurling Championship final appearance is over as they produced a hugely impressive performance to down the reigning champions Tipperary in this evening’s semi-final replay on a scoreline of 2-22 to 2-19. Starring at corner back (#2) was Conor O’Callaghan from Kilcorney, who plays his hurling with Keale Gaels (Dromtarriffe & Millstreet).
In the first game Conor came in for special mention for an excellent display at corner back, and similarly in the replay: “Conor O’Callaghan again impressive”. The final is on next Sunday in Thurles at 2pm and precedes the Senior final in which Mark Ellis will most likely be playing also.
Cork show steel to finally battle past Tipperary – “…When Tipp trimmed the margin to just a point in injury time extra time was looming, but Conor O’Callaghan and the Roches twins, Eoin and Brian, ensured Cork cleared their lines…” [read more …] “Munster Minor Hurling Final Becons for Conor”
