January 2021 Snow in Millstreet

We go on a brief “Snow Tour” in the Millstreet area.  We share images from Sat. night and Sunday (24th Jan. 2021) when Snow arrived.   We begin with two images kindly provided by Brian Kelleher, Aubane which he recorded at the foot of Mushera and at its Cross at the summit of the challenging mountain climb.   Then we view snow covered Clara Mountain from a variety of angles.  Tap on the images to enlarge….and keep safe and warm!

We thank Presenter, John Greene for advance information on this Sunday evening’s programme – 24th Jan. 2021 at 7pm on C103.  (S.R.)

This Sunday evening on Where the road take me, John Greene goes on a virtual Journey to Newmarket, where he discovers a high octane start to the War of Independence one hundred years ago in the area. 

Local historian and author Donie Murphy outlines the background to murders, reprisals and houseburnings, as we take a closer look at both the Tooreengaraibh and Meelin ambushes of January 1921.

We also hear how the spoils of war enabled one group of IRA volunteers make it to the Church on time.  [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” at 7pm this Sunday on C103″
