Religious Broadcasts on Cork Music Station to Continue

For the next fortnight we shall be broadcasting live the celebration of Mass at St. Patrick’s Church, Millstreet as we have been doing since the beginning of the onset of COVID-19 with its many restrictions.   Our week-day daily broadcasts will continue for the next fortnight and will then end as more people are gradually being permitted to attend Church for the celebration of Mass.   However, our broadcast of 11.30 a.m. Sunday Mass will continue until full congregations are permitted to attend Mass in Church.   And our “Lunchtime Favourites” following Mass until 1.15pm will also continue on Cork Music Station.   We thank the very many Listeners worldwide who have been tuning into our Religious Broadcasts and who have been sending such uplifting kind comments.  If you wish to make contact with our Radio Station just email corkmusicstation@

“Where the Road Takes Me” at 7pm Sunday on C103

We thank Presenter John Greene for advance information regarding his programme this Sunday, 5th July 2020 at 7pm on C103.  (S.R.)

The life, times and songs of Country Music star Margo and songwriter Johnny Duhan, currently feature on ‘Where the road takes me’, in a series entitled ‘The Singer & the Songwriter’

On this week’s programme, John Greene concludes the story of Margo….

This week we hear about her battle with alcohol, as she strives to come to terms with a cancelled wedding, a horrific car crash and the weight of a promise made to her father before he died. 

But the good times outweigh the bad as she sings with Johnny Cash and Glen Cambell, tours with Hank Locklin and in Dolly Parton discovers a friend when she needs one.

There’s also a few family facts to be set straight as well, including a supposed falling out with Daniel that never happened.  [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” at 7pm Sunday on C103″

There are a number of hard copies of the booklet available. If you would like to receive a hard copy, or a number of copies for your organisation, please email us at <email>.

As Congregations return to Church this week

A few words from the Bishop on the current situation in relation to return to Mass.

As Congregations return to Church this week,

please return slowly and be understanding.


A warm welcome to all those who join us for Holy Mass this first week and weekend. It is a joy to have the return of congregations. The delight of so many, is an indicator that it is vital to nourish the spirit and the soul, as well as the body. We do not face the world on our own, God is there with us.

There is upset and disappointment that large churches are restricted to a congregation of 50 people. The hope is that before the end of the month this will change to 100, in churches where social distancing can be maintained. If only 50 can be present, then let that fifty pray and offer Mass on behalf of the whole parish community.

The 50 persons limit for indoor gatherings does bring home to us, the fact that we must take personal and communal responsibility to follow Public Health Guidelines. This is a vital realisation. We owe it to all the front-line workers who have been so brave and selfless. Only thus, can we hope to keep the virus suppressed in our communities.

Because of the restriction to 50, we ask people to be understanding and, if possible, to come to Mass in church during the weekdays rather than on these first few weekends. Let a weekday Mass be your Sunday worship, at least for the next few weeks.

Our Lady, health of the sick, pray for us.
