We have just been alerted to a wonderfully uplifting poem by Poet supreme, Francis Duggan which he shared at a time when Brendan Murphy and Jerry O’Riordan featured in their very memorable weekly chat especially about Nature on LTV2 Millstreet some years ago. Tap on the image of the Poem to enlarge. (S.R.)
The rooms of LTV’s Dan Joe Kelleher home in Carriganima are a floor-to-ceiling walk-in library bursting with VHS tapes and DVDs of concerts and community commemorations. We are lucky to have his foresight to record and store a snapshot of our local area for posterity.
In an article in today’s Irish Examiner, he is interviewed on how he started, how he built it up, and how changing formats of media worried him that his archive was becoming obsolete, and how he has for some time been committing his vast archive of recordings to the internet for an invaluable record of the era from the 1970s to present day.
