We sincerely thank Colm O’Connor who lives in Rotterdam and who originally hails from Millstreet for so very kindly sharing quite fascinating film footage of the Millstreet of the 1960s. Colm’s father, the late Eddie O’Connor, captured a variety of very interesting scenes with his cine-camera and here we view the footage which includes a Corpus Christi Procession and playing ball on a traffic-free Drishane Road. Among the others appearing on this hugely popular footage: John Coleman, John Lucey and Anthony Forde.

We thank Radio Presenter supreme, John Greene, for the following advance information regarding this evening’s programme at 7 on C103. (S.R.)
This week on Where the road takes me we continue and conclude our two part programme on Tom Crean a true hero in the history of Polar exploration.
This week John Greene meets his Grand-daughter Aileen and her partner Bill Sheppard, who along with her two sons attempt to follow in Crean’s
footsteps, exactly one hundred years after his third and final expedition to the Antarctic. After an 800 nautical mile journey from Elephant Island to South Georgia, Crean, Shackleton and Worsley managed the first crossing of the mountainous island to seek help for their comrades still stranded back on Elephant island.
One hundred years later, after breaking her leg, his Grand-daughter
discovers that out on the Antarctic, there are no emergency services to call upon.
We also meet Mike Barry, the first Irishman to reach the South Pole. After building a replica lifeboat of the ‘James Caird’, Barry and his colleagues attempt Crean’s 800 nautical mile (1500KM) epic sea crossing from Elephant Island to South Georgia. And……

Former Ireland Rugby International to open 35th National Dairy Show
With the 35th National Dairy Show just around the corner we all eagerly await Ireland’s largest indoor agricultural show which takes place in Millstreet annually in October.
This year former Ireland rugby international Mike Ross will perform the honours when he officially opens the Show which promises something for everyone in the farming community. Mike, the son of Frank and Patti Ross, is a graduate of dairy farming having grown up on the home farm near Ballyhooly in North Cork where he still inspects the progress of the Convamore Herd when he gets a chance on his visits home. Mike’s early rugby career started with Fermoy underage, the club that his father Frank played with distinction for many years. From there he progressed through the UCC ranks before joining Cork Con and then onto a professional contract in England with Harlequins until 2009 when he returned to Leinster where he played for 7 very successful seasons. After 61 Irish caps and two Six Nation Championships Mike retried from professional rugby in 2017, where he has certainly earned the title as one of the greatest scrummagers that Ireland has ever produced. Mike has also generously signed one of the new Irish jerseys, which only officially go on sale at the end of this year and together with a signed ruby ball and a hamper of goods, all will be up for grabs as door prizes on the day of the Show.
