August 29: More golden memories of the Oyster
IT was with regret, sadness and nostalgia that I learned of the burning down of the Oyster Ballroom, Dromkeen. Like so many of my generation, I have very happy memories of those few short years dancing there. In those teenage years, and in my early twenties, the main page of the Limerick Leader was the one that carried the name of the showband playing in Dromkeen on Sunday night. All other articles were secondary. May I suggest inviting the public to send in photos taken at the Oyster during the various dances. The response might be of great interest to many.
