Remembering 'The Bayno'
If you recognise yourself or anyone else,
we want to hear from you!
Captured by Pat Johnston of the 11th F.A, F.C.A, the canister containing the old 16mm film reel has been in storage since 1954, apart from a brief loan to RTÉ.
To celebrate the Iveagh Trust's 130th anniversary, the film has been transformed -- remastered and upscaled to high definition. Make sure to view it in full screen.
The film provides a wonderful insight into the heart of the community that was the Iveagh Play Centre in the days long before iPhones and Playstations. If you do happen to spot yourself or recognise somebody you know, please get in touch with us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. The Trust plans to host a special reunion whenever it is safe to do so and we'd love to hear from you.
With very special thanks to all of you who gave us your stories and voice recordings. Unfortunately we were unable to put all of your wonderful stories on the footage but the following voices can be heard giving you an idea of what life was like at The Bayno when they were younger: Patricia Doyle, Lily Hamilton (Neé Lancaster), Sonny Morley, Carmel Murphy and those interviewed by The Digital Hub.
