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

Many thanks to Presenter, John Greene for advance information regarding this evening’s programme on C103 (14th July 2019 – Bastille Day – so very special greetings to all our French Friends)  – S.R.

Many are the links between Ireland and France such as the above French Restaurant near Dublin’s Grafton Street. We here in Millstreet treasure our Twinning Links with our wonderful Friends in Pommerit le Vicomte. Very best wishes and greetings to France and especially to Brittany on this Bastille Day 14th July 2019. (S.R.)

In the early 1950’s residents of the Gaoire near Macroom were offered approximately forty pounds per acre under compulsory purchase of their land.

Compulsory purchase, when enforced, usually allows a public infrastructure to go ahead for the common good.  In this instance, construction of the Lee Valley Hydro Electric Scheme was deemed to be for the common good.  Electricity at the time was making its way slowly but surely into rural Ireland.

In the second programme on ‘Where the road takes me’, John Greene returns to what was once the village of Annahalla, before being flooded in 1954.

Now a statutory nature reserve and a walker’s paradise, the area was once home to many families, including a future Bishop of Cork and a college president.

Vorsprung Durch Technic

Since the 1980s, Audi have been using the catchphrase ‘vorsprung durch technik’ in their advertisments. It is usually translated into English as ‘progress through technology’,  capitalizing on the German reputation for technical expertise.

But it was advertising execeutive Sir John Hegarty who coined the phrase for the advertisments. He is a descendant of one Jeremiah Hegarty, known in Millstreet as ‘The Landlord’ who had large business enterprises here in the late 19th century into the early 20th century. Jeremiah’s name is given to Hegarty Street (above the AIB), where he had a creamery, and where he built the houses for his workers. See the video below where John talks about how the phrase came about:

Death Notice: Dan Cronin Aunaskirtane and Brú na Sínsir, Rathmore, Co. Kerry

On July 7th 2019 peacefully in the gentle care of the staff of Killarney Nursing Home, Dan, aged 98. Predeceased by his wife Margaret. Sadly missed by his loving family, nieces, nephews, sister in law, brothers in law, relatives especially Con, neighbours and friends. R.I.P.

Reposing at O’Keeffe’s Funeral Home, Rathmore on this Monday eve. (July 8th)from 7pm to 9pm. Followed by removal to the Church of Our Lady of Perpetual Succour, Shrone. Mass on Tuesday (July 9th) at 11.30am. Burial afterwards in Rathmore Cemetery. Ní bheidh a leithéid ann arís. [rip]

Dan Cronin was born in a cosy and homely thatched cottage in the wonderfully scenic townland of Aunaskirtane, Rathmore, Co. Kerry in the 1920s. He was educated in Shrone N.S. up to the age of fourteen. Dan had always maintained a keen interest in old tales and history. His superb narratives were penned from reality. Fireside tales of other days so gripped that he often felt he was present as the stories were occurring.   It was a true privilege knowing the wonderful Dan and his late wife, Margaret.  Dan had such a wonderful sense of humour and his consistent smile projected his sincere friendliness to All. Being a member of a very special Sliabh Luachra group which was formed to coordinate the most memorable Launch of one of Dan’s most famous and most popular books “In the Shadow of the Paps” at the “Two Mile Inn” Hotel in Killarney (now “The Torc” near Lissavigeen) it was such an honour being asked to take the photograph which appears on the cover of the world renowned book.  And what a mighty day we all had visiting various locations in Sliabh Luachra to capture images for the book with Dan relating such great stories about each location as we travelled on a beautiful day in Summer.  Dan and Margaret were always so very welcoming not only in Aunaskirtane but also in Rathmore.   Dan has left a magnificent legacy in the world of literature and history.   Thankfully, over the years Dan was recorded on television, radio and locally.   What a hugely valuable treasure this is for many generations to come.   Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam dílis.  (Seán Radley)  [read more …] “Death Notice: Dan Cronin Aunaskirtane and Brú na Sínsir, Rathmore, Co.
