MEMORIES OF WHEN MEATLOAF PERFORMED AT CONNA CASTLE 1990.

Tune into Noel Cronin's Saturday morning show 'Rural Report' on Community Radio Youghal - CRY104FM at 10:30am on Saturday, 22nd, January, 2022, to hear memories of when Meatloaf played at Conna Castle, Co Cork, way back on, June, 2nd, 1990. Local music fan Gish Broderick talks to Michael Hussey about that memorable trip to see the concert.
Listen to Community Radio Youghal here: www.cry104fm.com/

This is what the papers said at the time: Meatloaf For Conna Castle Entertainment.

The June Bank Holiday week-end is just round the corner and everybody is wondering where to go, of course, there is one place to be - Conna for the MEATLOAF Live Concert. Conna have landed its biggest ever act in their 25 years of staging entertainment at the Castle, So June 2 is the day where Conna is concerned and the Brideside Village should be thronged with MEATLOAF fans.

Conna was once described as a sleepy village by press reporter but over the years this remark has been lifted and artists and bands such as Susan McCann, Philomena Begley, Ray Lynam, Furey Bros., Dubliners and last year Smokie have lifted the tempo to extreme heights and proved where live entertainment is concerned, Conna Castle is second to none.

With MEATLOAF on the menu the fans are sure to get belly full of music and song and with a thirst quencher, it looks like being a merry night.


At the castle grounds a special stage will be constructed in an ideal site to ensure a good view for all the patrons.

This picturesque setting should add a romantic element to the event and provide an exciting, hectic night of entertainment.

The concert commences at 10pm with MEATLOAF taking the stage at around 11.30pm. Tickets for the concert cost £10 and can be got from a number of local outlets.

International Challenge Cup 2022

Huge congratulations to Republic of Ireland ICC team on winning the International Challenge Snooker Trophy which took place in the Gleneagle Hotel, Killarney, Co. Kerry, on the 17th, and 18th, January 2022.

The win was all the more sweeter as two Youghal men were represented on the ROI Team. Veteran snooker player Brendan Cooney from the Youghal CYMS had the honour to captain the ROI winning team while fellow Youghal man, up and coming snooker sensation Ross Bulman, also played on the team.

What an honour for the boys on the green baize and what a great achievement by the two Youghal men. Well done to the ROI team and all your supporters and friends in the sporting world.

Teams from France, Scotland, Northern Ireland also took part.

Plans Launched For New Cancer Support Centre in Youghal - By Christy Parker.

Plans by the Youghal Cancer Support Company, would see the current two storey building on Friar St demolished and replaced by a three-storey support and drop-in centre.

The present house has been recognised as offering a spacious, homely setting and an atmosphere conducive to relaxation and confidentiality in tandem.

From twice weekly beginnings the service "now operates "eight hours daily, five days a week", says centre manager Shane Murphy.

"We offer information and counselling to anyone affected by cancer and also provide a range of holistic treatments", he adds.

"People travel from as far distant as Carrigtwohill, Midleton, Dungarvan and across west Waterford as well as locally".

The centre is staffed by six volunteers, who see approximately 50 clients a week, while a further four volunteers provide an online service. "We also offer a driver service for anyone perhaps needing to attend appointments in Cork for example" says Mr. Murphy.

For full story see today's Irish Examiner ( Tuesday 18th January 2022)

That design shouldn't get the green light, sorry but it does not tie in with the rest of the town. What are they trying to do to our town with all the grey. How depressing. The existing building is lovely and welcoming and doesn't appear to have any structural issues. Wheres the sense in knocking it and replacing it with......That??!! There's room to extend surely!!

That design is totally inappropriate and will hopefully be knocked on the head by the County Council’s Heritage Department…The original intention of this project was to provide a comfortable, homely atmosphere to cancer sufferers & survivors, not a clinic. There is ample room for a side & rear single story extension…and as large sums were raised in the Youghal & Waterford community for the purchase of the present building, where exactly has funding come from now to spend on a substantial knock & rebuild at a time when building costs are at an all-time high?

I don't think this modern building has a place on a street where there are lovely old houses can't see how it got planning or how this style was considered in the first place!!

I think bird dis to demolish this house there is room at the back and also to extend upwards . With people crying out for houses I believe this is a crying shame to knock this lovely house .

A shame to knock a perfectly good building and especially as the money could go to much more needed areas of Cancer support and services.

There is no doubt it is a brilliant service. I have availed of services there recently myself. I just can’t see the justification for demolishing a ‘spacious, homely’ building for this very clinical looking design which offers no parking for staff or clients. Also, building costs these days have skyrocketed, where does the funding come for this project? More importantly as mentioned previously what happens to the clients while this work is being done? I have more questions than answers now 🤦🏻‍♀️

Looks horrible & uninviting. How much is this going to cost? Where will people go while the demolition & building are goin on? Where's the beautiful garden going to be? Ridiculous proposal & waste of money in my opinion.

They need a bigger premises now...Bank of Ireland has just vacated a HUGE property...just an idea?!? Shiney and new is not always the answer.

That is a monstrosity of a building . Sorry but it's not in keeping with the heritage of the town. When I and many others pounded the streets for donations it was planned as a homely place for people to go . I know we need more services but why not do a new build somewhere else . I hope they won't be fundraising because I for one won't donate

Well said ester a lot of buildings on the Main Street stick out like a sore thumb the state of them derelict left to rot at least this building is for the good of youghal people fighting cancer brilliant work being done in there and I’m pretty sure while renovations are going on there will be other premises made available 💯👍

Although the service is needed and welcomed, this proposed building hurts my eyes!!

Maggie Goggin Anne Goggin Sean Goggin Dee Goggin Kelleher Brid Goggin Sexton Catriona Sutcliffe 😭 Talk about knocking Nanny's house

Is that the proposed design?

Where are people going to go when this work is going on ??? Will the service be stops ???

Pictures taken today, Saturday 15th January, 2022, of the reconstruction of the lower part of the gaol steps which is closed for over a year due to a collapsed wall. Pictures also show the support work on the walls on Ashe Street and the general historic area in the centre of town. New layout plans for the improved development of Ashe Street are in place.
