Description

For almost seventy years the National Ballroom, Parnell Square was a major dancing venue in Dublin. Most of the top Irish showbands appeared there. (A plaque outside the building commemorates the Miami Showband members murdered by the UVF in Northern Ireland in 1975). The National Ballroom is mentioned by a number of our interviewees. The Ballroom closed in 1989.
