Please, all litter and cigarette butts, belong in the bin, not on our pavements/ streets/approach roads. Also, dog owners are required by law, to pick up your dogs mess and bin it too, it is considered to be litter and there is a fine if caught not doing so.

To celebrate the recently held International Dawn Chorus day, John Greene was on hand to record not only the feathered orchestra in the early hours of the morning, but also their evensong as well.
On this week’s edition of ‘Where the road takes me’, we discover that the performance is not really for our benefit, but mainly to defend their breeding territory or to attract a new mate. Whether or which, it’s an ideal opportunity to experience Mother Nature at her very best.
Joining John on the programme will be an environmental biologist and the landowner, who has dedicated most of his life to nature and wildlife. [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” at 7pm on C103″

The easiest method to listen to Internet Radio is on an actual Internet Radio unit which requires broadband connection.

Hopefully this problem will soon be resolved and the missing Radio Stations restored. In the meantime the simplest way (as always) on your Computer, iPad or iPhone to listen to Cork Music Station is to click here on the blue highlighted link which opens www.corkmusicstation.com . Then simply click the Play Arrow and there it is – Music, songs 24/7 and chat with live DJs at specific times! Happy Listening on Cork Music Station. (S.R.)
