Son of the late Singing Fireman John O’Shea, Tony O’Shea talks about his father, growing up on the Northside and being a true and proud Norrie, choosing a guitar instead of a hurley at the North Mon and his  own  career as a Cork City Fireman, before retiring at the age of 54. 

We also hear songs from his CD ‘My Lovely Rose and You’, the title track dedicated to his late mother.

“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 – 12th Sept. 2021 at 7pm on C103.  (S.R.)

Where The Road Takes Me – Sunday 12th Sept.

This week on ‘Where the road takes me’, John Greene continues the Tale of three Norries.

In Programme two we meet songwriter John Murphy who was asked to write a number of songs for a CD to commemorate the burning of Cork City in December of 1920.

Although a launch and promotional events were out of the question because of Covid-19, the CD has almost sold itself.

Only seventy copies remain, with all proceeds going to ‘Alana’s Butterfly Wings’ 

Like the other two Norries, John has a story to tell which is unrelated to music.

Born in the UK, John was brought to Ireland for adoption.  He relates his story articulately, speaking about his dysfunctional and unfit adoptive parents in Cork.

Living the life of a loner as a child, without love, care and affection, John still finds difficulty in socialising.  Meeting his birth-mother for the first time and benefiting from her company for two years before her death, is a part of his story told emotionally.

Help find Sandwich

We received the following request, it is out of our jurisdiction but maybe  it will help.

Sandwich is a small female terrier. She has been missing from the Rathdrum area of Wicklow since Aug 18th. We have searched high and low for this little girl. We feel she maybe elsewhere in the country now. She is loved and missed so much by her owner Damien. There is a €500 reward for her safe return.

Firefighter Driver/Mechanic Supreme John Sheahan Retires

Following twenty years of wonderfully dedicated service to Millstreet Fire Brigade Service as Firefighter Driver/Mechanic supreme John Sheahan of Mount Leader, Millstreet has recently retired.   At a reception  in Millstreet Fire Brigade Station in honour of John – visiting Fire Officers paid many tributes to John including the fact that the hugely high standard in evidence in his magnificent care of the Fire Engines has been exemplary and consistent over the twenty years.   Eamonn O’Keeffe speaking on behalf of the Millstreet Crew expressed sincere thanks to John for being such an inspirational colleague towards all the Crew over the years.  Special presentations were made to John and his wife, Anna in the presence of his Family where three generations were present.   Refreshments were enjoyed by all with some specially decorated cupcakes and a Retirement Cake impressing all present.   It is wonderful to also note that John is truly handing on the torch to his son Darren who will shortly be taking up his full-time position as Firefighter with Cork City Fire Service.   We extend our very best wishes not only to John on a very Happy, Healthy and Long Retirement but also to Darren in his new career.   Here we share a selection of images from the recent superb reception at Millstreet Fire Station.  Tap on the images to enlarge.  (S.R.)

Day Trip to Spike Island on Tues. 21st Sept. 2021

The Clonbanin Ambush Centenary Commemoration  Committee

                     wishes to announce the following dates of importance:                                  Tuesday 21st September. A day trip to Spike Island, including a seat on a Luxury Coach, with reclining seats, arm-rests, head rests, plenty air-conditioning and ample leg room, total comfort guaranteed.

  • Kealy’s Coach will pick at the following places:        Derrinagree Church 08. 30am.  Dromagh Church 08.40 am    ……     Kanturk Church 09.00am Mallow Race Course 09.30am.                        
  • The day will consist of Coach tour to Cobh, then on to the 11 00am Ferry to Spike Island, where we will be met off the Ferry by our appointed professional Guide, followed by a 40/45 minute guided, historical and informative tour, a very comprehensive and detailed account of the War of Independence.
  • Originally the site of a monastic settlement, the island is dominated by an 18th-century star fort named Fort Mitchel. The island’s strategic location within the harbour meant it was used at times for defence and as a prison.

The military Gun Park alone has over a dozen exhibits used in coastal defence spanning over 300 years of warfare, as well as a recreation of the Battery Observation Post which would have targeted the guns on Spike Island.  Plus, many more items of interest including military transport and smaller arms.   It is much loved by military enthusiasts and anyone with an interest in the War of Independence. It has plenty toilet and rest-rooms facilities. A Café for refreshments.

The return journey will be via Mallow with a stop-over at the Arches Bar & Restaurant where we will enjoy a 3-course meal.   Main Course, Dessert   and   Tea / Coffee.

Total cost Including Coach, Ferry, Guided Tour and Meal  :   €40.    Pints, Wine and Drinks at the table are extra at your own expense.                                              

All names and monies will have to be submitted and paid up-front before Tuesday 14th September 2021 with no cancellations accepted, because the booking will only be finalized with Spike Island when paid in advance.  

Seats are limited and will be on a first come first served basis. The Coach is almost full, with just a few seats left.    This is a final reminder.                      

In accordance with H.S.E guidelines, masks will have to be worn on the coach and on the ferry.                                   

The other date to put in your Diary is October 9th 2021…..our Centenary Commemoration Celebration day, more about that later.                                                                                                         Any further queries contact    (086/8403914)     (087/ 8350255)           (087 / 9832388)                      (097 / 6251056)
