Superb Welcome for American President Joe Biden

What an historic day it has been (Wednesday, 20th Jan. 2021) not only for the USA but for the world with the Inauguration of President Joe Biden – 46th American President today at Capitol Hill, Washington.   He is the second Catholic President.  The first Catholic President – John F. Kennedy was inaugurated on this day 60 years ago.   Both have had Irish Ancestors – President Kennedy linked with Wexford and President Biden with Ballina, Co. Mayo and with Carlingford, Co. Louth.   We wish the new President every Blessing and Success in his all-important role in the next four years.  (S.R.)

On this week’s edition of ‘Where the road takes me’,  John Greene concludes the two part programme on the Cork Butter Road and the elusive man who built it in 1747.  Kilcummin based genealogist Rachel Foley traces  the background to John Murphy from Castleisland. 

Singer Seán Ó Sé wonders if his Grandfather was the first courier in Irish history.  (Carrying butter to the Cork Buttermarket for his neighbours from the Beara peninsula with horse and cart.) 

And after thriving worldwide as an industry for 150 years, the Cork Butter market unbelievably failed to move with the times and paid the price for it.  [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” at 7pm this Sunday on C103 Features “The Butter Road””

Eileen Murphy (née O’Leary), Louisville, Kentucky & Adrivale, Millstreet

We extend our sincere sympathy to Eileen’s daughter, Megan and to all the O’Leary Family of Louisville, Kentucky, USA on the very sad departure of Eileen Murphy to Eternal Heavenly Reward.  R.I.P..  Eileen was a True Lady of the very highest calibre – caring, optimistic, witty, friendly, spiritual, generous and sincere.  We had the great privilege of meeting with Eileen during her October 2019 visit to Millstreet.   She felt so much at home here and was especially thrilled to visit Adrivale from where her ancestors emigrated to USA some five generations ago.   She was so looking forward to revisiting Millstreet with her brother Michael and Elwood later this year.  It was Eileen’s brother, Patrick W. O’Leary who established such wonderfully strong links with Millstreet which have been growing stronger and stronger over the years to the extent that the Family has been so generously supportive of so many Millstreet (and Macroom) Projects.  On this Tuesday on Cork Music Station we shall broadcast a special tribute to Eileen on “Radio Treasures” to which she was a weekly Loyal Listener.  Mass will be celebrated for Eileen in St. Patrick’s Church, Millstreet on Tuesday, 2nd February 2021 at 7.30pm and this may be viewed on www.churchservices.tv/millstreet

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

We thank Presenter, John Greene for advance information on this Sunday evening’s programme – 10th Jan. 2021 at 7pm on C103.  (S.R.)

In the middle of the 18th century, Kerry was making a name for itself in tourism circles.  There was a desire in Cork to connect with their nearest neighbours.

As the road network was virtually non existent, a John Murphy from Castleisland was commissioned to build a 56 mile long stretch of road linking Killarney with Rathmore, Millstreet and Cork City.

He would have to include a total of 24 bridges along the way and raise the money himself to do so. 

Having completed the work, Murphy was in financial ruin, but his road network helped one industry to thrive and flourish.
