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

We thank Presenter John Greene for information regarding this evening’s programme.  (S.R.)

This Sunday evening on ‘Where the road takes me’, we feature the last journey into the archives covering a period of thirty years.

From May of 1997 during a two day visit to Cape Clear Island, John Greene spoke to retired seaman Connie O’Donoghue and retired pilot Duncan MacLachlainn.  Connie had witnessed a number of his colleagues and fellow islanders perish, when a German submarine attacked his convoy off Tory island during WW11.

Duncan who was from East Cork, speaks mainly about his role as Secretery of the island branch of the IFA, and his hopes for the future of islanders and island farmers.

And during a visit to Tralee in 2013 we meet two former showband stars – Paddy Day who was a member of the Jim Cantwell Showband, and Tommy O’Connor from DJ Curtin and the Kerry Blues. [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” 7pm C103 This Sunday”
