Rare Dublin , Docks and East Wall footage from the 1960′s


 This is amazing footage of Dublin from the 1960′s , filmed by Leslie Crowe . This footage has now been restored, edited and made publicly available , capturing many sights and memories of our great city that woukd be lost otherwise. Of particular interest will be scenes of the Docks , recorded from Liberty Hall and from on the river , and also of the reclamation of the lands at Alfie Byrne Road.

The family of Leslie Crowe have provided a great service to the city and to Dublin historians by making these films available. They have asked if anyone can identify people , locations or have any comments on the footage to please contact them at


This is only a selection of the material available on youtube. Check it out , it includes footage from all over the city , and topics such as the restoration of Kilmainham Gaol .  Enjoy
