Album Of Irish Showbands

The Ballrooms Etc. 

The explosion of Showbands onto the Irish Entertainment Scene in the 1960s brought with it  an explosion in the number of Dancing Venues.

Already there were the Ballrooms which, up to now, facilitated Ballroom Dancing to the big bands like Mick Del (Delahunty), Maurice Mulcahy etc. Now new Dancehalls sprouted up all over the country. Along with these dances were held in Hotel Ballrooms and in Marquees.

This section shows some of the venues. Some are shown as they were, some as they are now and there are some interior shots.

Maybe you will find your own local among them.
