A colourful and unique politician, former Fine Gael TD for Cork South-West PJ Sheehan, died on August 10th last.  His wife Frances died just seven days previously on August 3rd.  Inseparable in this life, they are together again in the next.

In 2002 John Greene sat down with both of them in a room behind the family grocery store in Goleen.  It was a week before Christmas and seven months after PJ had lost his seat in Dail Eireann after 21 years. 

This wasn’t to be a political interview, or a lament for the loss of a Dail seat, but instead a look into the lives of a unique couple from the moment they were born.

Taking over the business and receiving a ‘gift’ of a lorry from his father, which he himself had to pay for.

And…….  That famous last joust with Charles J. Haughey.

Frances speaks about………

How a ‘pretence’ story from home  forced her return from England.

Being far from impressed when she initially heard that her husband  was entering politics.

And …  An opportunity to gather her thoughts and plans while driving her husband to and from Dáil Éireann………………  [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” at 7pm this Sunday on C103″
