Looking for Jim Murphy

Update: Contact has been made 🙂

Hello there, I am trying to track down  a man by the name of Jim Murphy. His wife’s name is Mary and he has a sister by the name of Mary who married a Mr. Paddy O’Shaughnessy of Banteer, Cork.

Jim Murphy spent some years in England back in the 60’s / 70’s and was one of my Dad’s best friends. My father is trying to get in touch with Jim.

All I know are the details above and that Jim was originally from Poundhill in Millstreet. He would be around 80 years old I would assume as that’s how old my father is.

I’m sorry I don’t have more detail but I am hoping someone there would remember Jim and know if he is still alive and how we could find him.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks,
John Keane  0857142381 <email>

A Special Day in Thurles

Not many hurling medals make their way to this part of Cork, so when there’s two on one day, it is something to special, as Conor O’Callaghan won a Minor medal, and Mark Ellis a Senior medal. On top of that Jack O’Riordan threw over a point in the primary game 🙂 Below are some photos from the day:

“Where the Road Takes Me” on C103 at 7 This Evening

We thank Presenter John Greene for the following advance information regarding his radio documentary this evening.  (S.R.)

Two of the reasons regularly put forward for the survival of traditional music in Ireland are that the country was not one of the battlegrounds in either of the two world wars, and also that our economy was largely agricultural, where tradition usually lives and thrives.

In a four part programme on ‘Where the road takes me’, John Greene looks at some of the other reasons, like the influences of some of our most talented musicians, composers and collectors.

We look at the enormous contribution of Irish traditional music collector and Anglican Minister Canon James Goodman, curate of Ardgroom, Rector of Skibbereen and Canon of Ross in the late nineteenth century. [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” on C103 at 7 This Evening”
