Avondhu

Once more the Summer decks the hills round dear old Millstreet town
The breezes waft the scent from flowers of green Duhallow down
The sunshine chases shadows fleet o’er Muskery’s meadows wide
And light and shade guild every glade by sweet Blackwater’s side

Sweet it is when Clara hill is clad in sunset glow
And happy lovers shyly meet in many a vale below
They breathe the balmy Irish air and roam the meadows through
Where Finnow witching waters join the far famed Avondhu

Oh. Avondhu by many a field your shadowed waters glide
Where I have life[s golden hours your restful banks beside
Now scattered afar the comrades all my careless boyhood knew
Alas we’ll never meet again beside sweet Avondhu

Some sleep beside that grand old stream in the graveyard on the hill
They closed their eyes in dreamless death while life seemed pleasant still
Light lay the sod upon their clay may heaven’s sweetest dew
For ever bless each comrade’s grave beside sweet Avondhu

The fairest land on earth art thou Oh Ireland grá mo chroí
Your Exiles brave in every land are wrath to make you free
Their dearest hope that yet some day in Freedoms light they’ll view
Their Native hills that sleep for aye beside sweet Avondhu

“Where the Road Takes Me” this Sunday at 7pm on C103

We thank Presenter, John Greene for advance information regarding this evening’s programme – Sun. 22nd March 2020.  (S.R.)

The Showband era and a genuine concern for the environment, would rightly be regarded as an unusual combination or mix, for one radio programme.

But, not really however, when the main guest on the programme has a foothold in both.

On this week’s edition of Where the road takes me,  John Greene goes to visit Michael McCarthy, co-founding member of the Ritz Showband during the 1950s.

Michael is quick to admit that he is not an environmentalist in the Greta Thunberg sense, but he does share her concerns.

While also admitting to once being an offender himself, he now believes that saving the earth and the wildlife within, should start with the younger generation, and he has put the proverbial money where his mouth is. [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” this Sunday at 7pm on C103″

What Matters

“What Matters” – I wrote this song at the start of the week on my way home to Millstreet from New York. I had to leave because of what is going on in the world at the moment. I’m lucky in a way because that decision is even harder for others who are facing and will face some very tough times. That unbelievable Irish community will get those people over there through it. As will our communities here. This song describes some tough situations but it is also written in the hope and knowledge that we’re going to come together and support each other through it. It’s an appreciation of everyone’s efforts and bravery. There is gratification growing in me right now for the small things in life and I hope this resonates with some if not many. Stay safe❤️ We can’t share a lot at the moment so it’s pretty safe to share this away mad – Darren Kiely

A Great Opportunity to Create a Time Capsule


This is a great opportunity for families to get creative and work as historians!

A time capsule is a historic cache of goods or information, usually intended as a deliberate method of communication with future people, and to help future archaeologists, anthropologists, or historians.
