“Radio Treasures” Tonight Features at 10pm Interviews at Dooneen and at Rockchapel – Full Programme from 9.30 to 11.00 pm on CMS!

Tonight…on this Tuesday 21st July 2020… on “Radio Treasures” broadcast on Cork Music Station 9:30 to 11:00pm we feature our regular items with a splendid blend of uplifting songs and music as well as a variety of interesting musings.    Among the Treasures to feature tonight:

  1. Our special Interview at Rockchapel  (following our 10pm Dooneen Interview to which we refer below) on Sat. 18th July 2020 when the hugely impressive cheque of €2,148.30 was officially presented to Jim from “Bumbleance”.
  2. We join at 10pm our great Friends from ROCS (Reach Out Cancer Support) who this very evening had a social outdoor get together at the superbly welcoming home and exquisite garden of Michelle and Patrick O’Keeffe at Dooneen, Millstreet.
  3. We remember our Faithful Departed especially Julie and Betty. We recall Anne Keane on her First Anniversary.
  4. We hear some very special songs such a “Flying by” composed by Davy Ryan and “When the Robins Return” wonderfully sung by Paudie McAuliffe from Shrone.  And with the help of James Wickham of Minnesota, USA we again hear the amazing singing voice of Kate Smith – the “American Dame Vera Lynn”.
  5. We talk about Jerry Pat O’Leary’s superb recent 90 minute Podcast.
  6. And we chat about the images shared here:

Eily’s Report – 21st July

Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a chairde, and welcome to my report.

Say what you like, I pity the publicans. The Bar business is their livelihood  and no community is complete without them. A well run bar can be a wonderful thing, a place where to meet a friend or have a party, or run a fundraiser, the list goes on. But  their future has been dragged along, in an atmosphere of uncertainty for months. When they were told they could open on Monday July 20 they left no stone unturned to pave the way for their grand opening with public health a priority.  With only days to go they stocked up with all the drinks etc. and then the ax fell again. It’s nobody’s fault. The powers that be had no option but to call a halt because of the many new outbreaks of Covid19 in the country. We  look  to them to protect us and if they didn’t there would be uproar all over the place. It’s just that the publicans are in that sort of business that isn’t easy to lay down rules which will be right for everybody.

The pubs are part of what we are and I hope it won’t be long before we will see them back in business again.
