Clonmel in 1967 - Video archive released by RTE

Clonmel in 1967

Clonmel - on this day in 1967!

RTE has released archive footage of Clonmel, from a programme broadcast on this day in 1967.

The 'Discovery' programme showed a "town at the crossroads of change."

Included in the video are references to controversy that arose when the town’s municipal theatre became a bingo hall. 

Another dispute had arisen over the future of old buildings in the town, such as the Main Guard and the nineteenth century West Gate which separates O’Connell Street from Irishtown, the old historic suburb of Clonmel.

Watch the fascinating video below to see what has changed and what hasn't!
