Where The Road Takes Me – Sunday 29th August

Recorded a year before his death and with promises of plenty more in the reserve, this was in fact the last of many recordings with John O’Leary in Cobh.  John passed away last April at the age of 98. 

This week there are tales of a visit to Fatima with a Margaret Thatcher connection.

There’s a tale of Margaret Thatcher and her bitter battle with the Yorkshire Miners.  There’s Margaret Thatcher and the Hunger Strikers and Margaret Thatcher and her Kenmare roots.

And the mood is sombre, as John recalls losing three colleagues and friends in tragic circumstanses,  from his days in an Garda Síochána.  [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” at 7pm this Sunday on C103″
