Dog Warden Service Visiting Millstreet Area

On Tuesday, 23rd March 2021 two Cork Co. Council Officials were carrying out their duties at The Boeing Picnic Area near the River Blackwater in regard to the Dog Warden Service.  Following numerous complaints from the Public the focus by the Officials was on Control of Dog Fouling (Litter Pollution Act of 1997) and also on the Control of Dogs Regulations 1998 – Dogs that require special care including breeds like American Pitt Bull Terrier, German Shepherd/Alsatian etc…. and every other strain or cross of every breed in the listed category of dogs – while in a public place are required to be securely muzzled and led by a sufficiently strong leash by a person over the age of sixteen who is capable of controlling such a dog.   It was indicated that there will be increased patrols in the Millstreet area and that Pooper Scoopers should be carried by those walking their dogs.  Tap on the images to enlarge.  (S.R.)

We thank Presenter, John Greene for advance information on this Sunday evening’s programme – 14th March 2021 at 7pm on C103.  (S.R.) 

Where The Road Takes Me

On this week’s edition of ‘Where the road takes me’, John Greene speaks to Dr. Alan Desmond who was born and raised in Blarney.

Trained in CUH and Bantry General Hospital, Alan is now one of the leading young Consultant Gastro-Enterologists in the UK and leading Clinician at the Devon Gut Clinic. 

During his time at the frontline of the hospital’s Covid-19 wards he encountered many patients who were also suffering from Chronic diseases and thus limiting their chances of recovery. 

It’s time he says that people should know the facts about our Western diet and think seriously of adopting a plant-based food diet.

Easier said than done, as we Irish love our cow. 

However, Skibbereen based Nutritionist Majella o’Neill also joins in and offers a happy medium. [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” at 7pm this Sunday on C103″

“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 – 7th March 2021 at 7pm on C103.  (S.R.) 

Where The Road Takes Me

In 1921 the IRA Hierarchy made an order that women who were found guilty of spying or collaborating with the enemy, were to be banished from their homeplace. 

However, some local Commanders rewrote those rules and executed at least three women who had crossed the line as they saw it. 

On this week’s edition of ‘Where the road takes me’, John Greene delves into the story of Beara woman Bridget Noble who was kidnapped by the IRA, held hostage for over a week and executed.  Her remains were never located.

We hear from author Seán Boyne who has written extensively about it and we also joined by musician and composer Skully, who wrote two pieces of music in memory of Bridget Noble.

We hear a recording of his Great Grand-Aunt Eva O’Sullivan, who, at only twelve years of age, was a member of Cumann na mBan at the time.  [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” at 7pm this Sunday on C103″
