We thank Presenter, John Greene for advance information regarding this Sunday evening’s programme on C103 at 7pm. (S.R.)
The theme of this week’s edition of Where the road takes is positivity – a vital component of getting through these difficult times brought upon us by Covid-19.
John Greene has invited past contributors to the programme to give their personal observations on the virus and how it has effected their area. It is mandatory for all the contributors that their words are positive and of a helpful nature.
A politician, a nun, a publican, a poet, a farmer and a parish priest have their say on how we can emerge from this pandemic mentally intact and with a new and positive outlook on life.
We thank Presenter John Greene for advance information on this evening’s programme – Easter Sunday, 1th April 2020. (S.R.)
He once worked for the ESB and is a qualified electrician and draughtsman, but you won’t identify him as such.
Having spent five years studying the violin and classical music, he eventually joined, arguably, the wildest and most famous Irish band of all.
This week on ‘Where the road takes me’, John Greene speaks to John Sheahan about life prior, during and after the Dubliners.
Ronnie Drew, Luke Kelly, Barney Mckenna and Ciaran Burke have all passed on, leaving John as the only remaining original member.
Having waited until his 80th year and prompted by his family, Sheahan has just released his debut solo album – ‘Flirting Fiddles’. It’s a collection of his own compositions, some of which were written many years ago and confined to the attic. There’s the beautiful ‘Autumn in Paris’ and ‘Waltzing with Angels’, which he has dedicated to the memory of Sr. Eugene a nun who often played music with him.

He fell from an escalator and broke a number of ribs. He was diagnosed with pneumonia and suffered a slight stroke, all in the space of three weeks.
He recently celebrated his 97th birthday and none of the aforementioned setbacks seem to have bothered him greatly. He is as sharp and as witty as ever.
John O’Leary is originally from Carrigroe near Clonakilty, but now living in Cobh. You have met him on several occasions on Where the road takes me, mainly talking about his time in the Garda Siochana between 1942 and 1955, a time not without many incidents.
This week he reflects on his time in England. We hear about Margaret Thatcher, the Yorkshire miners, the IRA hunger strikers and Fatima. They’re all connected, in a way.
