We thank Presenter, John Greene for advance information on this Sunday evening’s programme – 12th Sept. 2021 at 7pm on C103. (S.R.)
Where The Road Takes Me – Sunday 12th Sept.
This week on ‘Where the road takes me’, John Greene continues the Tale of three Norries.
In Programme two we meet songwriter John Murphy who was asked to write a number of songs for a CD to commemorate the burning of Cork City in December of 1920.
Although a launch and promotional events were out of the question because of Covid-19, the CD has almost sold itself.
Only seventy copies remain, with all proceeds going to ‘Alana’s Butterfly Wings’
Like the other two Norries, John has a story to tell which is unrelated to music.
Born in the UK, John was brought to Ireland for adoption. He relates his story articulately, speaking about his dysfunctional and unfit adoptive parents in Cork.
Living the life of a loner as a child, without love, care and affection, John still finds difficulty in socialising. Meeting his birth-mother for the first time and benefiting from her company for two years before her death, is a part of his story told emotionally.

We received the following request, it is out of our jurisdiction but maybe it will help.
Sandwich is a small female terrier. She has been missing from the Rathdrum area of Wicklow since Aug 18th. We have searched high and low for this little girl. We feel she maybe elsewhere in the country now. She is loved and missed so much by her owner Damien. There is a €500 reward for her safe return.
