Bobby Chapple talking at St Mary's Collegiate Church, Youghal. - Voice recording of Bobby Chapple talking about Lucinda Hyde who once lived in Ashton Court ( Loreto Convent, Youghal) and the debatable point that one of Cromwell's daughters is buried beneath the green panel tiled floor at @SSt Mary's Collegiate Church Youghal. - From the archives of Youghal Community Radio - © CRY 104FM. Recorded back in 1981.

Featured in the video clip are archive photos of St. Mary's Collegiate Church Youghal taken back in the early 1970s by Bobby Chapple. Bobby had a vast knowledge of the church building and the town itself. He was the churchwarden working as a part-time volunteer. He also owned the radio repair shop on North Main Street where 'The Priory' is located now.
In the Cry Youghal radio archives, Bobby recalls the story he heard growing up that Cromwell's daughter was buried beneath the tiles in front of the chancel.

Although Cromwell did visit the church it is unlikely that this legend is true. (See accompanying photograph which reads at the back “The tiles inside the communion rails - the green square is said to cover the grave of Cromwell’s daughter” - Bobby Chapple)

*2020 will see St Mary's Collegiate Church Youghal celebrate the 800th anniversary of its foundations.

The Embarrassing Bridge - Youghal Bridge Controversy 1965 - The Embarrassing Bridge - Youghal Bridge Controversy 1965

This episode of ‘Newsbeat’ was broadcast on 12 January 1965 with reporter Bill O’Herlihy featuring Charles Curran (Waterford), Paddy Linehan (Youghal) and Captain Pat Walsh (Harbour Master).

A new Youghal bridge crosses the Blackwater River but what is to be done with the old dilapidated bridge.

The old bridge connecting Waterford and Cork has been there since 1888. While Waterford County Council is anxious to take down the old bridge the cost of demolition has become prohibitive. 

Charles Curran, Chairman of Waterford County Council, explains how the bridge has become an embarrassment. There is strong support in Waterford for removing it by those who believe the dilapidated bridge has become an eyesore. 

The people of Youghal, on the other hand, would be disappointed to see the old bridge go according to Paddy Lenihan, a member of Youghal Urban Council. He describes the bridge as a useful spot for anglers and cyclists. 

Captain Pat Walsh, Harbour Master explains how fishermen believe that they could improve their catches if the bridge was removed. 

This episode of ‘Newsbeat’ was broadcast on 12 January 1965. The reporter is Bill O’Herlihy.
