Heal those who are sick with the virus. May they regain their strength and health through quality medical care.
Heal us from our fear which prevents nations working together and neighbours from helping one another.

We thank Presenter, John Greene for advance information regarding this Sunday (15th March 2020) evening’s programme on C103 . (S.R.)
He fell from an escalator and broke a number of ribs. He was diagnosed with pneumonia and suffered a slight stroke, all in the space of three weeks.
He recently celebrated his 97th birthday and none of the aforementioned setbacks seem to have bothered him greatly. He is as sharp and as witty as ever.
John O’Leary is originally from Carrigroe near Clonakilty, but now living in Cobh. You have met him on several occasions on Where the road takes me, mainly talking about his time in the Garda Siochana between 1942 and 1955, a time not without many incidents.
This week he reflects on his time in England. We hear about Margaret Thatcher, the Yorkshire miners, the IRA hunger strikers and Fatima. They’re all connected, in a way.
For those fortunate enough to be able to receive an acceptable reception of Millstreet Church Television one may tune into the live transmission of Mass when it’s being celebrated. For those who wish to know how to tune in: The signal is broadcast on UHF Channel 53 which is an analogue channel. Most modern televisions broadcast a digital signal but many still have an analogue facility which can be tuned in to UHF Channel 53 only when the signal is operating during a Service in the Church. The signal also depends on the aerial facing in the direction of the Church. This can then be saved. If one wished to acquire this service on their television the wisest approach is to contact a Professional Television Technician who can determine if your television can in fact received the signal. Location and distance from the Church is also a determining factor. The next feature will describe how you may receive Mass transmissions through the Internet. (S.R.)
