Ronan Mooney shared a video with us about Dublin in 1988.
A video presentation of Dublin in it's 1,000th year in 1988.
A video directed & produced by Michael Mooney (Ronan's late father) & sponsored by Philips Electronics Ireland to showcase their new 'VidiWall' technology. It was narrated by a man named Lar Redmond and the soundtrack was composed by two gentleman named Paul Murphy & Barry Grace (Ear Two Ear). Photographic work was done by Arthur Browne. Other credits follow the video at the end.
It was shown in St. Andrew's Church on St. Andrew's Street, Dublin 2 for some months to celebrate Dublin's millennium status. It was a very popular tourist attraction.
Dublin was a very different city in 1988. Pay particular notice to the differences in the helicopter aerial footage at the beginning of the video of Dublin's Docklands from the Dublin we know in 2012. It brings very nostalgic feelings for Ronan and he hope it does for you too!
Michael Mooney was very proud of his hard work to make this video, as were his wife & children. Ronan hopes it'll be a fun video for you to watch now.
