We thank Presenter, John Greene for advance information on this Sunday evening’s programme – 13th Dec. 2020 at 7pm on C103. (S.R.)
It’s a virtual journey to the village of Crookstown this week on ‘Where the road takes me’, as John Greene goes to meet members of the local Social Club.
Having had to cancel the majority of their planned events during the year, the club decided to diversify and produce a valuable social history of the village and surrounding areas. The end result is a book entitled ‘The way we were’
On the programme this week we meet historian and author Michael Galvin who outlines the course of the Influenza Pandemic of 1918-1919, which claimed 20,000 lives in Ireland.
We hear about Poulanargid Harrier Club whose first outings one hundred years ago were in earshot of the Kilmichael Ambush.
In Aherla, we speak to hurley maker and repairer Ted o’Mahony who also played minor, junior and senior hurling with Cork.
The way we were, is the way we’ll be, on Where the road takes me, this Sunday evening at 7 on C103.
