The RTE radio one programme ‘Ceilí House’ will come from Bruach na Carraige, Rockchapel, on Saturday, 20th and Saturday, 27th October after the 9pm News. It will feature the Rockchapel Comhaltas based group, Ceoltoirí Sliabh Luachra, performing some of Sliabh Luachra’s oldest music. Much of this music comes from the manuscripts of Dave Dan Curtin of Stagmount, Rockchapel and the manuscripts of his father, Dan Curtin that go back to before 1850, and contain an older layer of Sliabh Luachra music that predates the polkas and slides that characterise the area now, and also from the manuscripts of Dave Leahy of Mountcollins who died in 1907.

After a recent three part programme on the Lusitania, Where the road takes me returns to the town of Cobh to meet one of the town’s greatest
characters. Although born in Rathbarry in West Cork, John o’Leary has been a resident here for some time.
From joining the Gardai in 1942, to being present in a courtroom as a man
was sentenced to hang. From confronting Eamonn De’Valera at an election rally in 1954, to being blamed for instigating the famous battle of Bray, even though he was nowhere near at the time. And all of this while being a member of the force. To this day John is adamant that had he been allowed to remain in the Garda Siochana, he would have made a great policeman, being blessed with ample amounts of common sense.

36th National Dairy Show
to take place
in the Green Glens Arena, Millstreet
on Saturday 20th October
Minister for Agriculture, Food & Marine, Michael Creed, T.D., was on hand recently to launch the 36th National Dairy Show which takes place on Saturday October 20th in the Green Glens Arena, Millstreet.
The Show was first held back in 1982 and since then has steadily grown into Ireland’s premier indoor agricultural event. The word indoor was of huge significance to the Show when in 2017 storm Ophelia failed to upstage the holding of the annual event, and recent events at the National Ploughing Championships, when Storm Ali caused a major disruption, certainly brought home to us the true value and comfort of the Green Glens complex where the Show has been domiciled since its inception.
