On this week’s edition of ‘Where the road takes me’, John Greene returns to Brandy-Hall on the eastern side of Castletownbere.
We thank John for advance information regarding this Sunday Evening’s programme. (S.R.)
We visit the monument to Timothy Harrington MP on the western side of the Millbrook Bar on Brandy-Hall Bridge. In 1884, Harrington dismantled the Crown Prosecution’s case against the eight men accused of the Maamtrasna murders in 1882. His investigation led to the end of Gladstone’s Government.
We visit a monument on nearby Dinish Island which was erected to those who lost their lives at sea on the Beara Peninsula.
And we’re back in the Millbrook Bar for more music, song and story.
The second and concluding programme from Brandy-Hall near Castletownbere – on ‘Where the road takes me’ – this Sunday evening at 7 on C103.
