We thank Radio Presenter, John Greene, for advance information on this Sunday’s C103’s “Where the Road Takes Me” (9th April 2017):
In the first of a two part programme, ‘Where the road takes me’ visits Mallow and Doneraile this week, to look at the life of a remarkable author and priest. Patrick Augustine Sheehan was born in Mallow in 1852 and was taken into care after both his parents and most of his siblings died from consumption.
Few would have foreseen this shy, timid and fair haired young boy later becoming a champion of his people and a world renowned author. In fact by the end of the nineteenth century no other writer in Ireland enjoyed such a worldwide reputation as he did. … continue reading the full article “Canon Sheehan Feature on “Where the Road Takes Me” Sunday at 7pm”

We share “The Maine Valley Post” feature on the recent sad departure to his Eternal Rest of the legendary Gentleman and Musician Supreme – Maurice O’Keeffe. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam dílis. (S.R.)
The death has occurred of Maurice O’Keeffe, Musician, Glounreigh, Kiskeam, Cork. Maurice passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his loving family in his 98th year.Beloved husband of the late Peg and father of the late Jeremiah. Deeply regretted by his sons: Francis, Denjoe and Christy, daughters: Maura, Sheila, Eileen and Margaret, brother John, sister Julie, daughters-in-law, sons-in-law, brother-in-law Dermot, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nephews, nieces, relatives, neighbours and his many friends.
May He Rest In Peace.
Maurice achieved a degree of fame in the late 1960s when, as a Cork County Council road ganger he was filmed playing the fiddle on the side of the road during a tea break with his men. Of more sustainable fame for Maurice though was his undoubted gift for the music of his locality and his generosity with the dispersal of the many tunes he had gathered and learned. … continue reading the full article “Death Notice: Maurice O’Keeffe – Legendary Musician of Sliabh Luachra”
