We thank Presenter, John Greene, for advance information on this evening’s programme – Sun. 17th Nov. 2019 from 7 to 8pm. (S.R.)
A regular contributor to Where the road takes me, Bantry based GP Dr. Denis Cotter passed away on Sunday November 3rd last.
This week on the programme, John Greene chooses excerpts from the many editions he contributed to over the past seven years.
The end result is a look at the life and times of a man whose family can be traced back to 1839 in Bantry.
Coming from a well known bakery family in the town, Dr. Cotter graduated from medical college as a GP, later setting up a practice in Newtown.
In between, Denis played rugby for club and Munster, at a time when playing or attending foreign games resulted in a mandatory ban.
Playing Gaelic Football with Bantry Blues, he later became team doctor and trained the senior team to two County Senior football titles in 1995 and again in 1998.
A tribute to the late Dr. Denis Cotter of Bantry – this Sunday evening on Where the road takes me at 7 on C103.
