Fondest greetings dear Listeners and I wish you all the very best on this wet ,’n calm ,Tuesday morning.

It’s great to be back with you again following two wonderful weeks in far away Nebraska ,land of Indian tribes and descendents of  so many  Irish Immigrants.

Many congratulations to Fr. Paddy O Byrne who celebrated the Golden Jubilee  of his Ordination at Lincoln, Nebraska on March 29th.where he had missioned for over forty years . It was indeed  an honour for me  to be present at this historic ceremony which saw the mighty Cathedral of that City packed to capacity. Up to a 140 priests in all attended, as did countless numbers of nuns, The Knights of Columbus and the hundreds of people to whom he has endeared himself over the years.  The popular Fr. Paddy will be further honoured by his own people here in Millstreet at a later date.

Good morning, Patricia and greetings, dear Listeners, from Millstreet in Co. Cork.   In this our 1,006th Regional Report we hear about Easter preparations, upcoming “Round the Fireside” features, LTV2 updates ….. and  there’s more – much more!

Presenter:   Seán Radley (deputising for Eily Buckley)

Good morning, Patricia and greetings, dear Listeners, from Millstreet in Co. Cork, Ireland mentioned for the benefit of our many online Listeners worldwide on the c103 website.   Following such a severe Winter, it is so wonderfully uplifting to now be experiencing the onset of Spring and a greener Ireland with daffodils beginning to appear.   In this our 1,005th Regional Report we hear about Daffodil Day, an Easter Vintage event, upcoming “Round the Fireside” features, an LTV2  exclusive, website updates ….. and there’s more – much more!

But we begin on a sad note as we remember the late Mary O’Connor of “Duneden”, Boherbue who along with the late Tadhg O’Driscoll established the very popular Millstreet Gramophone Circle some years ago.  Mary who went to her Eternal Reward on Sunday, was such a true Lady of the highest calibre who shared many musical gems with numerous Gramophone Circles from her fascinating collection of treasured recordings.    For almost thirty years Mary had dedicatedly devoted her great musical talents and sincere energy to the Boherbue Church Choir.   Ar dheis Dé go raibh a hanam dílis.

The awful happenings in Haiti  some days ago, shook the world, but here in Millstreet we felt a kind of affiliation with that country, because last years our community fundraised to enable Jerry Pat O Leary to go to that troubled land, as part of the Haven organisation, to build houses for those people who are so, so poor. Jerry tells us that the place where they worked is well away from the epi-centre of the earthquake and that the houses they built are still intact. He is having a meeting with the Haven organisation to-night to decide what further help they can be in Haiti. We will keep you informed. And please note that a fund for the cause has been opened at our Credit Union.

Its is at times like these that we see the value of having our own local station. Please support well at all times.

Million congratulations to the Cork Ladies Football team, and all connected with them, on making it a five–in-a-row on Sunday in Croke Park. It was such an exciting match, and could go either way up to the closing minutes. But the then the hunger of the Corkonians came to the fore, they were blind to everything except the goal-mouth, and sealed their victory at the last minute. And to think that only two weeks ago this bunch of beautiful young women, also won the All-Ireland camogie final at the same venue. I hope they get the recognition, and the esteem that they deserve. Congratulations to them again. They did us proud and we are justly Proud of them.
