Here is a summary of the upcoming John Greene’s programme re Henry Ford:
“The story of Henry Ford, founder of the Ford Motor Company has been well documented. Born in the Greenfield Township of Michigan on July 30th 1863, he became a child genius and eventually one of America’s greatest industrialists. His first car, the inexpensive Model-T, made it possible for many middle-class Americans to own their first automobile.

Having retired in the last few years as a metal fabrication teacher at CIT, Pat Lynch now lives with his wife on Model farm Road in the suburbs of Cork City.
But, what now seems like a former life, Pat was once lead singer with two of the top Showbands in the country. This week on ‘Where the road takes me’, John Greene pays a visit to his home to hear his story and his music.
Pat was born in Bantry, but grew up in Blackpool on the City’s Northside. He was giving tap-dancing lessons as a teenager, and became known as ‘Cork’s Al Jolson’.
While playing support act at a dance one night, Pat was offered the opportunity of a lifetime to become lead singer with the Clipper Carlton Showband, who have since been credited with starting the whole Showband era.
Later, as lead singer with the Airchords, he reached number one in the Irish charts with ‘When we were young’.
Programme one featuring Millstreet Community Singers, interviews with Tom & Noreen Meaney, organised by Seán Radley, which was on Jimmy Reidy’s “Round the Fireside” show on c103 Radio last Monday night. Part two will feature next Monday evening.
Today, while shopping in Millstreet an uplifting further gesture of support for our work on the Millstreet Website was received. Following our recent church gate collection for the combined funding of both our Museum and Website it’s totally encouraging to note the response our appeal has received from loyal followers of our Website living elsewhere in Ireland and across the world in such a generous and concrete manner. The relative of one such kind follower (who wishes to remain anonymous) donated €50.00 towards the support of our website. Míle buíochas for this much appreciated gesture. This contribution will be added to our overall fund as we continue to share such news as the following:
Steven O’Riordan was interviewed by Patricia Messenger on C103 about a homeless family in Charleville which he came across while canvassing for last week as a candidate for Cork North West in the 2016 election. Listen to the interview below (14 mins long):
The Street Fleet were there from 10am to 11:30am this morning, and have moved onto Macroom
World Suicide Prevention Day takes place on September 10th. On that night there is a world-wide campaign to light a candle near a window at 8 PM to show your support for suicide prevention to remember a lost loved one and for the survivors of suicide.
We at C103 have candles for our listeners to light at 8pm and the Street Fleet will be travelling around the county handing out the candles. The Street Fleet will be in Millstreet and Macroom on this Wednesday the 9th.
Some may not have noticed, but at the end of Eily’s Regional Report this week she notes: “Please take note that my weekly report will no longer be heard live on radio, except for a 30 seconds snippet, which will be heard at 10.30 on Tuesday mornings. After that my full report can only be accessed online, C103.ie. I believe that all the reports from round the county will be run starting at 10.30 on Tuesdays. I am sorry for all the people who aren’t online. However the new change will mean that people at home and all over the world will now be able to get the reports live from wherever they are at any time. Poor consolation I know for all those who don’t have computers. Modern methods always come at a price, unfortunately.”
