RUN from Malin Head to Mizen Head….600+ km

On June 29th 2020, Corkman Barry Sheehan started the challenge to RUN from Malin Head to Mizen Head….600+ km in one week to raise funds for Cappagh Kids.

He is running the equivalent of two marathons per day and will be passing through Millstreet either tomorrow or Saturday.  It will be nice if we could give him a bit of support or even run some of the way with him.

If you are interested you can follow his progress  on the Malin2Mizen for Cappagh Kids Facebook page.

“Where the Road Takes Me” at 7pm Sunday on C103

We thank Presenter John Greene for advance information regarding his programme this Sunday, 28th June 2020 at 7pm on C103.  (S.R.)

This Sunday evening on Where the road takes me, John Greene begins a four-part series entitled  ‘The Singer & The Songwriter’.

Featured in parts three and four, songwriter Johnny Duhan reflects on a difficult upbringing, his time as frontman with beat-band ‘Granny’s Intentions’, the importance of  his song ‘The Voyage’, and why he is often referred to as ‘the man in the shadows’. 

The series begins this Sunday evening with Country singing star Margo O’Donnell, who never wished or meant to be a singer.

In the programme Margo speaks about…………

How the promise made to her father on his deathbed, weighed her down for years……..

How her future husband backed out of their wedding, two weeks before it was due to take place…

How the final straw was a horrific car crash which kept her off the stage for months, leading to loneliness, depression and leaning on alcohol for support.

And………there’s a few myths about her family to be cleared up as well. [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” at 7pm Sunday on C103″

We thank Presenter, John Greene for advance information regarding this week’s programme at 7pm on C103 on Sunday, 21st June 2020.  (S.R.)

This week on ‘Where the road take me’, John Greene concludes the three part programme ‘Inspiration from the past’.   

The failure of the 1916 Rising, proved, that while the Irish were willing, they weren’t able or ready for the power of the enemy.    Those who were rounded up in its aftermath were shipped off to Frongoch prison camp in a remote part of Wales, and left basically to their own devices.  The camp now became known as a ‘University of Revolution’.  As a result, when the ‘War of Independence’ came about, the Irish were still willing, but as a result of the secret training they received at Frongoch, they were now also ready and able.  [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” This Sunday at 7pm on C103″
