Three and a half thousand people who missed the programme, logged onto our website to hear the podcast of her last guest spot on ‘Where the road takes me’. So to say that West Cork based psychic tarot reader and paranormal investigator Karina Collins is back by popular demand, is not a cliché but a fact.
A step by step guide as to what happens when the soul leaves the body after death and heads for the spirit world. In fact it is not uncommon for the soul to ‘jump ship’ and leave the body a few moments before death.
Past lives and re-incarnation, and the 2000 proven case studies of children who spoke about their past lives. The children as young as six gave information about members of their families in a past life, which was later investigated and verified by their parents, and researchers.
A brief history of Tarot cards which goes back to the 15th century. We discover that they are not as scary as they look, and there is much more to them, than just predicting the future.

We thank Presenter supreme, John Greene, for the following advance notice regarding his upcoming 7pm Sunday radio programme (22nd Jan. 2017) on C103 (S.R.):
From a farming background in the rural village of Caheragh, he went on to become an outstanding cancer surgeon and founder of the Cork Cancer Research Centre. The sad irony is that the disease he spent almost a lifetime operating on and attempting to find cures for, seemed to take it’s revenge on him in the end.
On ‘Where the road takes me’, and over the course of three programmes, we look at the life and times, the career and many achievements of the larger than life Professor Gerry o’Sullivan, who passed away in February of 2012.
In Caheragh we meet his brothers Con and Donal. We meet the people behind the Threshing festival in the village who have raised one million euro so far, for a cause that one of their favourite sons passionately believed in. And we pay a visit to the Amenity Science Park in the village which honours the memory of a world renowned Cancer Researcher and surgeon.
We spend a day with the scientists and investigators at the Cork Cancer Research Centre, which was founded by Gerry o’Sullivan. Now in a state of the art facility, it houses clinicians and researchers under one roof, where new cancer treatments are brought to trial quicker.
We extend sincere congratulations to Mrs. O’Keeffe formerly of Clara Road, Millstreet and who now resides at Teach Altra, Newmarket – on the wonderful celebration of her 100th Birthday on this Christmas Day.

Climb to the summit of Mushera Mountain quite a daunting task one has to say
For those who sponsor them for their favorite charity for this credit in heaps they are due
To climb Mushera in the depths of Winter to a cause one would have to be true
On Christmas morning no matter what the weather they scale the heights of Mushera hill
It may be frosty, raining or snowing or the gale force winds blowing a cold chill
