Our 10pm Interview features a royal welcome for Genevieve and Conan O’Sullivan from Washington DC to Millstreet.  Yesterday (Mon. 27th Dec. 2021) it was such a wonderful occasion to meet with the Happy Couple and to share the Millstreet Experience with them.  By sheer chance some 15 years ago I first met Genevieve and Conan in Dublin.  One year later I was invited to their Wedding in Gougane Barra and afterwards in Victoria House Hotel, Muckross Road, Killarney.  Next October they plan to return to Ireland with Family and Friends to celebrate their 15th Wedding Anniversary.  Their official Photographer was Ian Cronin of Killarney. If you get a chance to tune in to our Show tonight you will get to hear two such supreme Ambassadors for the USA in our 10pm Interview.   Below we share images from yesterday’s Tour of Millstreet during which the Happy Couple (who participated in the annual swim in Castletownbere on Chrismas Day!) were thrilled to meet with many superbly welcoming Local People.

Tonight also we shall hear the Carrickerry Wrenboys (thanks to Patrick Lyons), Carols of the Bells and we are really going to Party with the very best of songs and music including an unique version of “I’m the Music Man” with full orchestra!  Enjoy!   A special welcome to all those who now tune into our Radio Station on the “Radio Garden” Free App!

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

We thank Presenter, John Greene for advance information on this Sunday evening’s programme – 28th Nov. 2021 at 7pm on C103.  (S.R.)

Where The Road Takes Me – Sunday 28th Nov.

It’s a musical edition of ‘Where the road takes me’ this Sunday evening as John Greene speaks to Daniel O’Donnell as we approach his 60th birthday.

From dealing with Covid-19 to lockdown in Donegal and ceasing his legendary ‘meet and greet’ after concerts.

The singer also speaks about losing long time friend Ronnie Kennedy to prostate Cancer.  Ronnie who was Daniels accordion player since the early days passed away in September.

How the death of his father at a young age robbed the O’Donnell family of a great parent and a young man of a full life, that he so wanted to live.

There’s talk about road tripping with Majella in the United States and how opinions of his poor driving capabilities are greatly exaggerated.

And of course reaching the age of sixty is up for discussion as we also hear tracks from the album ’60’ and how the songs from it were selected. [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” at 7pm this Sunday on C103″

Millstreet Primary School Parents Association is proud to announce the sale of a fabulous CD which is sure to make a lovely present for Millstreet and music fans for Christmas 2021.

A delightful song by pupils from the Presentation National School also features.  The result is a varied collection of traditional Irish music, ballads, and toe-tapping tunes to name but a few. In total over 27 songs are featured.

Paddy has kindly offered all sale proceeds to benefit the two local Millstreet primary schools – Scoil Mhuire Boys National School and Presentation National School.

With support from the schools Parents Association a competition was run amongst the pupils of both schools to design the CD artwork.
