“Where the Road Takes Me” – Tom Crean Feature – Part Two

We thank Radio Presenter supreme, John Greene, for the following advance information regarding this evening’s programme at 7 on C103.  (S.R.)

This week on Where the road takes me we continue and conclude our two part programme on Tom Crean a true hero in the history of Polar exploration.

This week John Greene meets his Grand-daughter Aileen and her partner Bill Sheppard, who along with her two sons attempt to follow in Crean’s
footsteps, exactly one hundred years after his third and final expedition to the Antarctic. After an 800 nautical mile journey from Elephant Island to South Georgia, Crean, Shackleton and Worsley managed the first crossing of the mountainous island to seek help for their comrades still stranded back on Elephant island.

One hundred years later, after breaking her leg, his Grand-daughter
discovers that out on the Antarctic, there are no emergency services to call upon.

We also meet Mike Barry, the first Irishman to reach the South Pole. After building a replica lifeboat of the ‘James Caird’, Barry and his colleagues attempt Crean’s 800 nautical mile (1500KM) epic sea crossing from Elephant Island to South Georgia.   And……

Aidan Dooley talks about his one-man show ‘Tom Crean – Arctic Explorer’. After playing to forty people initially [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” – Tom Crean Feature – Part Two”

Where the Road Takes Me

We thank John Greene for the following advance information re this evening’s C103 programme at 7pm.  (S.R.)

There is no doubt but that Tom Crean from Annascaul in County Kerry was an
unsung hero of the heroic age of Polar Exploration. He joined Captain Scott
and Ernest Shackleton on three of the four great British expeditions to the
Antarctic. His landing of the James Caird lifeboat on South Georgia in May
of 1916, having navigated 800 nautical miles through icy winds and
mountainous seas in the Antarctic, is still regarded as one of the greatest
feats of seamanship ever. [read more …] “Where the Road Takes Me”

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

We thank Presenter, John Greene, for the following advance information on his weekly programme being broadcast at 7pm on C103Sunday, 1st Oct. 2017.  (S.R.)

On Where the road takes me this Sunday evening, our journey takes us to the East of the County to Shanagarry.  John Greene pays a visit to author,
teacher, celebrity chef and co-founder of Ballymaloe Cookery School – Rory O’Connell.

After what he describes as a ‘free range’ upbringing in the village of
Culahill County Laois,  Rory tested his resolve for a career in both the
legal and auctioneering professions.  Deciding eventually that neither
careers were for him,  and on the suggestion of his mother, he went to join his sister Darina Allen at Ballymaloe House,  where he worked under Myrtle Allen.

Honing his skills under Nico Ladenis in Chez Nico in London and with Alice Waters in California, he returned to Ballymaloe House as head chef.

There are food matters galore to be discussed on this week’s programme
including why we Irish murder vegetables and have an unwarranted fear of fish.

While the regulations seem to be sufficiently stringent, Rory O’Connell
believes that the whole area of organic growing requires more explanation
for the consumer.
