fbDestination Newry…..the Morning Programme…your host….Rowan Hand…..

Good morning all…..the only way to deal with a 24 hour cold is to take to the bed for 24 hours….I did it yesterday with Lemsip and Cavonia my companions….it worked…no food…just liquids and this morning blueberries ……..that’s my tip to you …manage your health….

Sportsmen everywhere deeply saddened by the death of the 25 year of Australian cricketer Philip Hughes….hit by the ball on an unprotected area of his head…..the poor lad collapsed and never regained his life….dead I’d say from the moment of the strike …….

Congratulations to the Newry based combo Kaleidoscope/ U3A on winning the people’s lottery £48,000… a start for their “Imagine Arts’ Centre” to serve the artistic dreams of the older population of the island….a big well done guys…..and gals…..Newry Forever!

The Republic getting it’s act together in homelessness….. 110,000 new social homes within the coming six years…..it is of course, badly needed and long overdue…..

Our own Father Peter McVerry of the Caring in Dublin….young addicts….homeless….at the edge of their being….with Moderator of the Presbyterians Michael Barry, Peter will be guest speaker this day week at the Newry Christmas Business Dinner….an event of great significance….Saint Vincent’s and Salvation Army in their as well….

Good drugs busts north and south this morning……great I’d say….getting the rubbish off the streets our children all the safer for it….

Lying through his teeth…that’s the black consensus on the white police officer who shot dead the teenager in Ferguson USA….. “his account doesn’t add up…” the victim’s grieving father….trouble continues.

I have my usual eclectic mix of music and musings……
The News Hub…written and waiting….updates to be added…..
The Papers….of course….
Interviews…the alternative is unacceptable.

Your programme….your Newry and Mourne….your world….and don’t dare forget it….love it, embrace it…make it yours….

The Morning Programme 00730 – 1030 GMT Monday to Friday.
