Mem­o­ries and mir­a­cles on Where the Road Takes Me

The Corkman - - COMMUNITY NEWS - TIMMY LYNCH tim­my­lynch@eir­com.net

MANY mem­o­ries will be reawak­ened on C103 from 7pm to 8pm on Sun­day night next 17th Septem­ber, when ‘Where the Road takes Me’ will be­gin with the fol­low­ing words from John Green: ‘Good evening and wel­come to the first of a two part pro-gramme on ‘Where the road takes me’ en­ti­tled Mem­o­ries and Mir­a­cles’.

It’s all cen­tred on the Edel Quinn Hall in Kan­turk, which cel­e­brated its’ 60th an­niver­sary back in Novem­ber of 2014. But, who was Edel Quinn and why do we search for a mir­a­cle that would mean so much to the peo­ple of Kan­turk? Edel Quinn is ti­tled The Very Ven­er­a­ble Edel Quinn and a con­firmed mir­a­cle would see Edel canon­ised and from then on she would be Saint Edel Quinn.

Yours truly will be shar­ing mem­o­ries of my time with The Young Ones play­ing in the Edel Quinn Hall also I will be shar­ing mem­o­ries of my fa­ther, Neily Lynch, dur­ing the build­ing of the Edel Quinn Hall.

The mem­o­ries are all mu­si­cal, as we bring some of Cork’s best known show­band stars back to the hall to re-live their mem­o­ries of play­ing to packed au­di­ences here, dur­ing one of the most ex­cit­ing eras in Ire­land’s mu­sic his­tory – The Show­band era.

So, sit back, re­lax, and en­joy a mu­si­cal jour­ney back in time, as we also delve into the life and times of an amaz­ing young woman who is one step away from saint­hood.

Oliver O’Don­nell from the Mau­rice Mulc­ahy Orches­tra and De­clan Ryan, lead singer with the Re­gal and Ar­rivals, will also fea­ture on the first pro­gramme.

The sec­ond part of the pro­gramme will be broad­cast at the same time on Sun­day 24th Septem­ber.
