The Dancing Years

Paper 223

Lecture – 2001

Author – Keeling, Tony

Published in: Time & Tide Vol 5

This paper was delivered on a fateful night 2001/9/11 but paradoxically is an enjoyable trip into nostalgia of the 50s – 70s in Skerries.  It deals with Red Island holiday camp, the Pavilion Ballroom, and the author’s life as a member of a skiffle band and other bands, including the very successful all-Skerries Showband, the Graduates.
