  1.  The significance of the number 102!!   See the following to learn about the amazing fundraising 102km Big Walk for Little Lives which recently took place in Co. Waterford…..This is a summary of the story as told by Maria and Jonathan Radley Our daughter, Christina, was born extremely prematurely at 27 weeks + 4 days on 25.06.2021 in CUMH, weighing 1 pound 2 Oz. To our absolute naivety, little did we know the journey Christina and all of us would have ahead of us. Her “new womb” aka Neonatal ICU (NICU) through state of the art technology, the most amazingly gifted and more importantly caring people, Christina survived & thrived, with a lot of bumps & hurdles along the way. For the duration of Christina’s time in NICU (102 days), Brú Columbanus became our “home away from home”. A family room at this amazing facility was made available to us with absolutely no requirement of payment. This meant that we were within walking distance of  Christina at all times. To this extent, no words will ever suffice on our behalf for both Neo ICU & Brú Columbanus however we feel it’s the least we can do to raise funds for both facilities and more importantly raise awareness of what amazing and devoted people they are. Thank you for your support x   And one may still donate to the fundraising by tapping on the following link:  https://www.idonate.ie/fundraiser/11438623_the-big-walk-for-little-lives.html?fbclid=IwAR36eToS4pz-mf1NCkLSXmm9rQbIb-3MvgBk85thRtbAvtFJTwhX7GP5pDQ

“Lunchtime Favourites” on Sunday 12.30 to 2.00pm on Cork Music Station

The final live programme of “Lunchtime Favourites” will be broadcast on Sunday, 20th Feb. 2022 from 12.30 to 2.00pm on Cork Music Station.  God willing, the programme will again return following a break of quite a number of weeks.   We shall, however, transmit during those many weeks, an hour long pre-recorded selection of songs and music in our usual Sunday time slot at 12.30pm.   Sincere thanks to our many Loyal Listeners for your uplifting encouragement since the Sunday programme began during COVID-19.  My present health journey requires this break but faith, hope and love will, with God’s help, assist to bear fruit and make a return to our Radio Get togethers a reality once again.   (S.R.)
