“Where the Road Takes Me” 7pm C103 This Sunday

We thank Presenter John Greene for information regarding this evening’s programme.  (S.R.)

This Sunday evening on ‘Where the road takes me’, we feature the last journey into the archives covering a period of thirty years.

From May of 1997 during a two day visit to Cape Clear Island, John Greene spoke to retired seaman Connie O’Donoghue and retired pilot Duncan MacLachlainn.  Connie had witnessed a number of his colleagues and fellow islanders perish, when a German submarine attacked his convoy off Tory island during WW11.

Duncan who was from East Cork, speaks mainly about his role as Secretery of the island branch of the IFA, and his hopes for the future of islanders and island farmers.

And during a visit to Tralee in 2013 we meet two former showband stars – Paddy Day who was a member of the Jim Cantwell Showband, and Tommy O’Connor from DJ Curtin and the Kerry Blues. [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” 7pm C103 This Sunday”

We would like to say how grateful we are to our loving families, good friends, amazing neighbours, and our caring and such a generous community for all your support during our traumatic and devastating day-to-day loss we have to endure.

We would like to thank the following:

 Denise Symth who ran the Dublin City Marathon and raised an amazing €3,075.00.

Munster Fire& Safety for printing Viv on the Temple Street T-shirts.

Millstreet Community School, Cloghoula NS, Geraldine Davis (Cork mini marathon) and to each and every member of the Millstreet  community who kindly donated money. We would also like to thank Sgt. Paul Lynch from the Millstreet Garda Station and all those that helped with traffic flow during Vivienne’s funeral service.

Finally but not least we have to say how amazed but not surprised we are of a very special young lady  Sophia, so sweet and kind  who donated her Confirmation money to Temple Street Hospital to help other  children like her BFF (Best Friend Forever) Viv.

Sophia’s Special Certificate of Appreciation …. Sophia was Vivienne’s BFF – Best Friend Forever.

In these few months since her passing Vivienne’s honour has raised a total of €7,416.75  for Temple Street Children’s Hospital for the ICU Department.

No matter how young she was she made a massive impact on us as a family not to mention everybody else and is still making that impact.                                         

Viv.……Never forget that you are one of a kind. Never forget that if there weren’t any need for you in all your uniqueness to be on this earth, you wouldn’t be here in the first place.

Castlemagner Players Present ‘Mother Knows Best’

This year Castlemagner Players are staging “Mother Knows Best” by Jimmy Keary. This 3 act play centres around Nick Cassidy who, while doing a painting job in the McDermott’s house, renews a friendship with their youngest daughter Suzy. The two begin dating, much to the disapproval of Suzy’s mother, Tess, who is hoping to make a match for her daughter with stuffy financial consultant, Adrian Bird. Tess resolves to break up the young couple by whatever means she can. However, such is Tess’ preoccupation with her daughter’s love-life, she fails to notice that her own husband, Harry is falling under the spell of her man-hungry golfing partner, Dulcie Cotter. Matters come to a head when Nick’s workmate, Joe Galligan breaks into McDermott’s, looking for money to pay off his gambling debts. During the theft, Tess’s plotting is exposed and Harry comes to a fateful decision.
The play is again directed by Neil Moylan and the final performances will be staged in Castlemagner Community Centre on Friday 29th, Saturday 30th November and Sunday 1st December at 8pm nightly, admission €10.

We thank Kathleen Moylan for this notice and we wish every success.  (S.R.)

“Where the Road Takes Me” Sunday 7pm C103

We thank John Greene for advance information on this Sunday’s (24th Nov. 2019) radio programme.  (S.R.)

On “Where the road takes me” this Sunday evening, we feature the story of a man who as a young boy had an overwhelming desire to become a musician.

While there are hundreds of similar stories out there, not many can also factor in Bessborough Mother & Baby Home, fostering, arranged marriages and dowries,  running away from home in Drimoleague and working in London while still at school, or buying their first guitar from Jimi Hendrix.

‘Borrowing’ a few calves to buy his first set of gear, Oliver Kane has been a full time musician for almost all of his life.  He has played with some of the top bands and musicians, including a stint with Rory Gallagher, and has taken to the boards in all of London’s top ballrooms.

He was fifty four years of age before he discovered that his biological parents were from Tipperary.  His book ‘Auntie Annie – My saviour’, tells the story of the wonderful woman who reared him with her husband in Clodagh Drimoleague. [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” Sunday 7pm C103″

“Where the Road Takes Me” on C103 This Evening

We thank Presenter, John Greene, for advance information on this evening’s programme – Sun. 17th Nov. 2019 from 7 to 8pm.  (S.R.)

A regular contributor to Where the road takes me, Bantry based GP Dr. Denis Cotter passed away on Sunday November 3rd last.

This week on the programme, John Greene chooses excerpts from the many editions he contributed to over the past seven years.

The end result is a look at the life and times of a man whose family can be traced back to 1839 in Bantry.

Coming from a well known bakery family in the town, Dr. Cotter graduated from medical college as a GP, later setting up a practice in Newtown.

In between, Denis played rugby for club and Munster, at a time when playing or attending foreign games resulted in a mandatory ban.

Playing Gaelic Football with Bantry Blues, he later became team doctor and trained the senior team to two County Senior football titles in 1995 and again in 1998. [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” on C103 This Evening”
