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

Thanks to John Green for advance information on this evening’s Programme.  (S.R.)

After two weeks looking into the future of Bandon town, we head North this week on Where the road takes me. 

John Greene visits Liscarroll to see how this village has changed and survived.

We meet a publican, farmer and poet, three people in fact rolled into one.

Inspired by the Yukon poet Robert Service, Philip Egan has found loads to inspire him into writing a number of poetry books, in a village steeped in history.

A different Hare family from Cloghoulamore?

Marriage of JOHANNES (JOHN) SHEEHAN of BALLYDALLY and HANORIA (HONORA) HARE of CLOUGHOLAMORE on 27 April 1875, – her parents were John Hare and Helen Kelleher [civil]

(At first I thought this was Denis’ (1810-1898) sister, but this Hanoria must have been born after 1840, while denis was born around 1810 … 30+ years apart, so i don’t know where they fit in. TODO … try to figure this out)

… They had four children Timothy, Catherine, John, and Patrick, of which only Timothy and Catherine survived, and wife Hanoria died in 1886.

John Sheehan married his neighbour Ellen Collins in 1889. Notes on that family are in this article on Sheehan / Collins / Hare.
