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

We thank Presenter, John Greene, for advance information regarding this Sunday (4th Aug. 2019) evening’s programme on C103.  (S.R.)

‘Where the road takes me’ returns this week with the second and concluding programme which looks at the scuttling of German U-Boat 260,  three miles south of Glandore harbour a few weeks before the end of WW11.

The story is told mainly throught the eyes and ears of  eighty seven year old Mary McCarthy, who was then a thirteen year old on the Galley Head, where eleven of the crew climbed up a dangerous precipice beneath the light-house. 

In the concluding programme we examine the three main theories for the scuttling of the submarine, and based on the evidence and information gathered on the programme, come to our own conclusion. 

Reports and logbooks from the Gardai and Coast-watch are examined, and from an interview conducted with two of the submarine’s officers, we get their views on the war, including how their school-going youth are being trained to successfully eliminate enemy tanks.
