We thank Presenter, John Greene for advance information regarding this week’s programme at 7pm on C103 on Sunday, 21st June 2020. (S.R.)
This week on ‘Where the road take me’, John Greene concludes the three part programme ‘Inspiration from the past’.
The failure of the 1916 Rising, proved, that while the Irish were willing, they weren’t able or ready for the power of the enemy. Those who were rounded up in its aftermath were shipped off to Frongoch prison camp in a remote part of Wales, and left basically to their own devices. The camp now became known as a ‘University of Revolution’. As a result, when the ‘War of Independence’ came about, the Irish were still willing, but as a result of the secret training they received at Frongoch, they were now also ready and able.
‘Frongoch – The University of Revolution’ – on Where the road takes me – this Sunday evening on C103 at 7pm.
