Wish You Were Here: the Redbarn Story Book Tickets

Saturday 7 October

Wish You Were Here: The Redbarn Story captures a unique moment in Irish history. A time when 3,000 people packed the Redbarn ballroom in Youghal just to dance.

Generations of Corkonians will remember their trips to the famous dancehall by the sea in Youghal which is vividly recalled in this wonderful documentary by Michael Twomey and Kieran McCarthy of Complete Control Films.  An era of boys to one side and girls to the other. Here are the stories of young people cramming into cars, sneaking out and hitching to the dance, riding bikes, walking miles to the venue and home again along the country roads and beach. Here is the generation of romance, carefree summer holidays and hot, sweaty nights dancing to the sounds of swing, rock ‘n’ roll and country.

This is a once-off screening and is not part of Triskel’s Cinema Programme.  Membership concessions do not apply.  There are very limited supplies of DVDs, which will be for sale on the night, but which can be ordered directly from the film-makers who will be present on the night.
