We thank Presenter, John Greene for advance information on this Sunday evening’s programme – 24th Oct. 2021 at 7pm on C103. (S.R.)
Where The Road Takes Me – Sunday 24th Oct.
In the first of a two part programme on ‘Where the Road Takes me’ this week, John Greene looks at the history of brewing in Cork. It also encompasses the commercial and social life in the City and County.
The programme focusses mainly on the Cork Porter Company, which later became Beamish & Crawford, until its closure in 2009.
In Bandon we look at the story behind Allman’s Brewery and Distillers, which was bought and closed by Beamish & Crawford. We also meet some of the former workforce at the West Cork plant.
The history of brewing in Cork – Programme One – on Where the road takes me this Sunday evening at 7 on C103.
