“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 – 21st Nov. 2021 at 7pm on C103.  (S.R.)

Where The Road Takes Me – Sunday 21st Nov.

With the anniversary of the Kilmichael Ambush just over a week away, John Greene looks at one of the unsung heroes, rarely discussed or mentioned at this time. 

Father Patrick O’Connell, Parish Priest of Enniskeane risked his priestly career and his life by riding out at night to hear the confessions of the Column the night before the ambush.

A few short days later, while accused of undermining his Bishop, he rode to Castletownkenneigh in the dead of night to bury the three members of the Column who lost their lives in the ambush. 

In part one of the programme we look at the background to the man and his actions and we discover a handwritten account by Michael O’Driscoll, who fought at Kilmichael.

In parts two and three, a new radio play entitled ‘The Valliant Fr. O’Connell’,  written by Lar McCarthy and directed by Donie Walsh, gets its first hearing.  [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” at 7pm this Sunday on C103″

Former WBO World Boxing Champion Steve Collins will visit Millstreet on next Friday 19 November close to 25 years after winning his World Title at the Green Glens Arena Millstreet when he beat Chris Eubank,
The fight was a real triller with Eubank the World Champion at the time and Collins the Irish underdog, but the cheering crowd got behind Collins, every punch thrown was electrifying which made for an unbelievable athmosphere.
On this coming Friday Evening you will again get an opportunity to meet Steve Collins again when he visits Millstreet as part of his currentTour,he is expected to arrive in Millstreet at approx 4 o’clock when he will be given an open top convoy by Millstreet Vintage Club from the Munster Drone Services at the Old Creamery through the Town Square with his first Official stop at the Carnegie Hall to sign the Visitors Book at the Millstreet Museum and look at some Memorbelia from the time of the fight,then its on to Green Glens where he will receive a tour of the premises where that big fight took place by the Duggan Family, next port of call will be The Bush Bar where he will be greeted by members of Rylane A.B.C. amongst others,he will see the fight from 25 years ago on a Big Screen and Autograph some Boxing items as well as the Origional Poster from the Fight which have been hanging in the Bush Bar all this time,
The Collins Family of Maxol Macroom Road Service Station have supplied the origional Banner used for the fight as the event was sponsored by Maxol back in the day.
The Boxers next duty will be to March to the Square with the Millstreet Pipe Band under that origional Banner to the Town Square where he will be welcomed to Millstreet Town by Millstreet Town Council and a Presentation will be made to him.

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

Where The Road Takes Me – Sunday 14th Nov.

On this week’s edition of ‘Where the road takes me’, John Greene concludes the two part programme on the history of the Jeffers family of Bandon.

Author of ‘Jeffers of Bandon – A history’, Isla Jeffers speaks about the burning of Castle Bernard by the IRA in 1921.

From our archives, we get an as close as possible first hand account of what transpired at Castle Bernard from the nephew of the officer in charge of the IRA unit Seán Hales.

 And…….

Jeffers open Bandon’s first café in the 1950s and West Cork’s first Supermarket in 1960.  However, a little tweaking was necessary, when a sign which read ‘Please take a basket’, was taken literally by customers. [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 Nov. 2021 at 7pm on C103.  (S.R.)

Where The Road Takes Me – Sunday 7th Nov.

This week on Where the road takes me and in the first of a two part programme, John Greene looks at the history of the Jeffers family.

When John Edward Jeffers came to work as a messenger boy in Bandon in 1855, he certainly did not envisage his future family becoming the biggest employers in the local area.

Although protestant, they took a neutral but dangerous stance during the war of Independence, going on to open the first supermarket in West Cork in 1960.

We also pay a visit to O’Donovan’s supermarket on South Main Street in Bandon on the day they celebrated fifty years in business.

The late Denis O’Donovan learned his trade in the grocery business at Jeffers, before opening his own shop in October 29th 1971.  [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” at 7pm this Sunday on C103″
