N.B. A date for the diary
Last Sunday I went walkabout with Vincent Carmody and Frank Lewis. The programme, a walking tour of Listowel, will be broadcast on Radio Kerry on Feb 22 in Frank Lewis' Saturday Supplement. The entire 2 hour programme from 9.00 to 11.00 will be from Listowel. I think you will enjoy it. I certainly did.
Here are a few photos I took on the day
Frank Lewis interviewing Vincent as we set out on the walk
Gabriel Fitzmaurice is a programme maker's dream. He had anecdotes, stories, poems and songs and was quick on his feet when thrown a curve ball question. Nothing on this tour was rehearsed…well prepared, yes, but the first take was the last take.
Martin Griffin told stories of local characters a few Lartigue anecdotes.
Jim MacMahon talked of Church Street then and now.
Joan Mulvihill gave a vituoso performance of the songs of the local bards. She also reminisced about her childhood in The Gleann.
