We thank Presenter, John Greene for advance information on this Sunday evening’s programme – 21st Feb. 2021 at 7pm on C103. (S.R.)
After bringing you stories of battles on ‘Where the road takes me’ recently, we bring you a story of music this week on the programme.
We also need to borrow that well worn cliché – ‘Even the sewing-machine was a Singer’ – because that’s the best way to describe the famous Keane family from Galway, most notably Dolores and Seán.
This week, John Greene invites you to eavesdrop on a conversation with Seán Keane. The story has everything – Happiness, stress, loneliness, romance, heartbreak, legal battles that never seemed to end, but also success and of course music – plenty of it.
Overall, it’s the story of an extremely talented man, with a refreshing outlook on life. [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” at 7pm this Sunday on C103″

Clan Callaghan…..The O Callaghan Family of County Cork
Maureen Phibbs from Co. Wicklow (formerly Maureen Hickey of Cullen) is Editor of the renowned “Irish Roots” Magazine and has recently been in touch with us in regard to an important Book which has just been reissued. Maureen writes:
“The author is Joseph F. O Callaghan, (the “O” is without the apostrophe throughout the book) now aged about 93 and living in the US. He is professor Emeritus of Medieval History, Fordham University. He first published the book in 2004 after spending many years researching the history of the O Callaghans. The revised and updated edition is now just published. It traces the fate of the O Callaghans from the tenth to the twentieth century including the O Callaghans along the Blackwater valley from Mallow to Clonmeen against the background of local and national history. It has copious notes, 16 genealogical tables of family trees and the bibliography is an excellent research tool for anybody studying local or national history.
His father, William, was born at Dromcummer.
We are featuring the book in the next issue of “Irish Roots” which has just gone to print. We are publishing which is really the 10th article in the Clan Callaghan book.
