We thank Presenter, John Greene for advance information on this Sunday evening’s programme – 17th Jan. 2021 at 7pm on C103. (S.R.)
On this week’s edition of ‘Where the road takes me’, John Greene concludes the two part programme on the Cork Butter Road and the elusive man who built it in 1747. Kilcummin based genealogist Rachel Foley traces the background to John Murphy from Castleisland.
Singer Seán Ó Sé wonders if his Grandfather was the first courier in Irish history. (Carrying butter to the Cork Buttermarket for his neighbours from the Beara peninsula with horse and cart.)
And after thriving worldwide as an industry for 150 years, the Cork Butter market unbelievably failed to move with the times and paid the price for it.
‘Where the road takes me’ can be heard this Sunday evening at 7, on C103.
