We thank Presenter John Greene for the following advance information on this Sunday’s C103 Programme at 7pm – 10th Feb. 2019. (S.R.)
In the beginning he was living in the shadow of his older and more famous brother Nathan, but now Jake Carter is a performing artist in his own right.
This week on ‘Where the road takes me’, John Greene chats to him about his Liverpool upbringing, and the mandatory and expected love of the Beatles and Liverpool Football club.
We hear about his Irish Granny who doubles up as a groupie, while also instilling a love of Irish music in all of the young Carters.
Accompanied by his trusted guitar, he sings a few of his favourite songs, while there’s also time to chat about life on the road, wanting to be his own man, and plans for the future. [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” Features Jake Carter Sunday at 7pm C103″
“TORONTO, Feb. 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ – Adventus Zinc Corporation (TSXV: ADZN, OTCQX: ADVZF) (“Adventus”) is pleased to announce that is has entered into a heads of agreement to sell its Lismore, Fermoy, Millstreet and Charleville exploration projects in Ireland to the privately-owned Australian exploration company BMEx Limited … read the full press release on PRNewswire“
The above press release was published yesterday, and frankly I had to read it twice to make sure I had read it right. Essentially the Adventus Zinc Mining Exploration Company purchased the rights to mine the area around Millstreet, and sold it to an Austrialian mining company. Just like that.
So what’s going on, and where is the mine? Well there isn’t any mine, nor have any exploratory drill holes been sunk as of yet. The companies are trading on the hope of finding Zinc in the Millstreet area. (Ireland has the highest concentration of zinc in the world.
Why Millstreet? Millstreet lies right on top of the Killarney-Mallow Fault Line, a major fault line where two tectonic plates were pushing against each other 270 million years ago, which ended up forming the mountains south of here. In creating the mountains, the surface of the earth buckled and layers containing Zinc from deep underground were pushed up to the surface where they are remain to this day, available for mining.
It is no coincidence therefore that the map of the Millstreet Block (below) follows the fault line from Killarney to Banteer. Nothing might ever happen with mining … but you’d never know.

The CEO of London’s number two homebuilder tells John Reynolds of his upset, as an immigrant, about the UK’s vote to quit Europe
For a self-confessed avid follower of politics in these islands and across the Atlantic, the office of Donagh O’Sullivan, CEO of Galliard Homes, has an apt setting, on the edge of Westminster in the heart of London and just around the corner from the home of Channel 4 television.

What’s the secret to staying card sharp as you approach your 100th birthday? For Cullen man Paddy O’Mahony, the answer is to eat well, enjoy lots of fresh air — and play a sociable game of cards three times a week.
And he’s a good man for the advice, as his great-granny lived to 103, and his 94-year-old sister is a card player too! Paddy, who was 99 on Christmas Day, lives in Cullen, near Millstreet. He and his late wife, Mary, from Kerry, had four children, Bridie, Thade, Noel and Siobhan.
He plays cards every week in Cullen, Castleisland and Ballydesmond and says: “My father played the game of 45 and 31. He taught me how to play cards at the age of five.” Paddy’s card-playing partner, Betty, has been alongside him for 30 years, and he also stays active by minding the animals at the home farm at Meenaglóherane … read the very interesting full article on EchoLive.ie
