Where The Road Takes Me – Sunday 19th Dec.
On the last occasion that John Greene met his guest on this week’s ‘Where The Road Takes Me’, he was required to call him Sir.
This week, John meets up again with Con O’Sullivan, or ‘Con Derrihy’ who was one of his former teachers in Secondary School.
Fachtna O’Donovan from the Beara Historical Society also travels from Castletownbere to Con’s home near Tuosist in County kerry.
The recorded conversation ranges from the early education system to Donagh O’Malley, the Education Minister responsible for free education.
There are comparisons made between Patrick Kavanagh and Oliver Goldsmith, a look at the lives of Patrick Pearse and William Shakespeare and how Con drove students to and from school prior to the arrival of school busses. [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” at 7pm this Sunday on C103″
