We thank Presenter, John Greene for advance information regarding this evening’s programme – Sun. 22nd March 2020. (S.R.)
The Showband era and a genuine concern for the environment, would rightly be regarded as an unusual combination or mix, for one radio programme.
But, not really however, when the main guest on the programme has a foothold in both.
On this week’s edition of Where the road takes me, John Greene goes to visit Michael McCarthy, co-founding member of the Ritz Showband during the 1950s.
Michael is quick to admit that he is not an environmentalist in the Greta Thunberg sense, but he does share her concerns.
While also admitting to once being an offender himself, he now believes that saving the earth and the wildlife within, should start with the younger generation, and he has put the proverbial money where his mouth is. [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” this Sunday at 7pm on C103″

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.
We hear how the actions of Gerry Fitt surprised him and his mood darkens as he remembers a tragic end to three Garda colleagues. [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” at 7pm This Sunday on C103″
