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

We thank Presenter John Greene for advance information on this evening’s programme – Easter Sunday, 1th April 2020.  (S.R.)

He once worked for the ESB and is a qualified electrician and draughtsman, but you won’t identify him as such.

Having spent five years studying the violin and classical music, he eventually joined, arguably, the wildest and most famous Irish band of all.

This week on ‘Where the road takes me’, John Greene speaks to John Sheahan about life prior, during and after the Dubliners.

Ronnie Drew, Luke Kelly, Barney Mckenna and Ciaran Burke have all passed on, leaving John as the only remaining original member.

Having waited until his 80th year and prompted by his family, Sheahan has just released his debut solo album – ‘Flirting Fiddles’.  It’s a collection of his own compositions, some of which were written many years ago and confined to the attic.  There’s the beautiful ‘Autumn in Paris’ and ‘Waltzing with Angels’, which he has dedicated to the memory of Sr. Eugene a nun who often played music with him.

We are deeply grateful to our extended family, friends and neighbours, for their support, kindness and generosity. Thank you to those who attended the funeral ceremonies, those who telephoned and to those who sent Mass and sympathy cards, perpetual enrolment certificates, floral tributes and many lovely letters. Thank you to the staff of St. Josephs 2 Ward at St. Finbarr’s Hospital, Cork, for their wonderful care of Anne. We wish to thank Canon John Fitzgerald PP and Fr Paddy Byrne concelebrants, sacristan, organist, soloist Jerry Doody, to the staff and Professional services of Tarrant’s undertakers for all their assistance, to our cousin Joanne and to the Wallis Arms Hotel for catering.
