“Where the Road Takes Me” at 7pm this Sunday on C103

We thank Presenter, John Greene for advance information on this Sunday evening’s programme – 21st March 2021 at 7pm on C103.  (S.R.) 

Where The Road Takes Me

Sixteen TV dishes attached to the walls and chimney of our house, eighteen remote controls, a television in every room and we still complain about nothing on Television. 

This week on Where the road takes me, John Greene invites three guests  to talk about the blissful days of the one and two-channel era. 

Former presenter of ‘Nationwide’ Mary Kennedy, Singer-Songwriter Tim O’Riordan and Aidan o’Rourke from Newcestown reminisce on the likes of ‘Green Acres’,  Mr. Ed.,  Kojak,  ‘Get Smart’  Wanderley Wagon’, ‘The Virginian‘, ‘The All Ireland Finals’,  rented televisions that almost filled a room, the famous blue paper and the rabbit’s ears..  (No animal cruelty was involved in the latter.)  [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” at 7pm this Sunday on C103″

True Pictorial Gem from the Past – The Class of 1945

We extend sincere thanks to John Tarrant for very kindly permitting us to share this wonderfully historic photo of the Class of 1945 which John’s late Mum, Nora had not only preserved for decades but has so very carefully written all the names of those in this superb image on the back of the photograph.   This picture also appears in John’s splendid Millstreet Matters feature in this week’s “Corkman” (Thurs. 11th March 2021).   The amazing coincidence we note is that not only is Nora Tarrant (née Buckley)4th from left in 2nd row… featured in the picture but so also is Peggy Kelleher (née O’Connell).6th from left in back row – both of whom went to their Eternal Reward over the past week.  RIP.  There are many others thanks to Nora’s excellent captions whom I recognise in this precious photo of 1945 even though I was not born until 1951.   Renewed thanks to the Tarrant Family for sharing this true pictorial gem.  Tap on the image to enlarge.  (S.R.)
