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

We thank Presenter, John Greene for advance information on this Sunday evening’s programme – 4th July 2021 at 7pm on C103.  (S.R.)

Where The Road Takes Me – Sunday 4th July

On this week’s ‘Where the road takes me’, John Greene concludes his tribute to John  O’Leary, a regular contributor to the programme, who died on April 26th last at the age of 98.

This week, athletics and general sporting guru Fr. Liam Kelleher remembers a trip to Medjugorje with John. 

From the archives, John looks back on the talented politicians from all political parties, who contributed to the foundation of the State. 

And……… Did Taoiseach John A. Costello take offence to ‘Roaring Meg’  being placed close to his table at a function in Canada by a Unionist supporter in 1948, or were his words misconstrued.  We hear John O’Leary’s view on why the Irish Politician took everybody by surprise back home, when he announced the Government’s intention to repeal the ‘External Relations Act’, which would and did cut our ties with the Commonwealth.

Remembering John O’Leary on Where the road takes me’ – this Sunday evening at 7 on C103.

FYI…….   Roaring Meg was the name given to the canons used in the walls of Derry against the army of Catholic King James in 1689.
