We thank Presenter, John Greene for advance information regarding this week’s programme where the focus is on Dr. Croke. (S.R.)
When Thomas William Croke was born in Kilbrin in 1823, the struggle for Catholic Emancipation was almost over. Yet, his mother Isabella, a Protestant aristocrat, was still shunned by her family, because of her marriage to a Catholic estate agent.
On this week’s edition of ‘Where the road takes me’, John Greene continues and concludes the story of the man after whom GAA Headquarters is named.
This week we hear how £1,872 was raised from the Croke Memorial hurling and football Tournament in 1913. The sum of money raised allowed the GAA to purchase Jones’s Road, which now became Croke Park.
Although his name is synonymous with hurling and football, Thomas Croke’s first love was handball, and we hear about his legacy to the sport in Fermoy.
Former GAA President Seán Kelly tells us why he feels Thomas Croke would be happy about the stadium being opened up to other sports today. [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” – Focus on Archbishop Thomas William Croke”

We thank Presenter, John Greene, for advance information regarding this Sunday (4th Aug. 2019) evening’s programme on C103. (S.R.)
‘Where the road takes me’ returns this week with the second and concluding programme which looks at the scuttling of German U-Boat 260, three miles south of Glandore harbour a few weeks before the end of WW11.
The story is told mainly throught the eyes and ears of eighty seven year old Mary McCarthy, who was then a thirteen year old on the Galley Head, where eleven of the crew climbed up a dangerous precipice beneath the light-house.
In the concluding programme we examine the three main theories for the scuttling of the submarine, and based on the evidence and information gathered on the programme, come to our own conclusion.
Reports and logbooks from the Gardai and Coast-watch are examined, and from an interview conducted with two of the submarine’s officers, we get their views on the war, including how their school-going youth are being trained to successfully eliminate enemy tanks.
