Hundreds of local people joined us for the recent premiere screening of the Ballybricken Film in St. Patrick's Gateway Centre. The film celebrates the history of the area and captures the memories of people who grew up in Ballybricken in the 1950's and 1960's. The film is about and for local people so we were delighted to see so many there. We are pleased to announce that we will be launching a DVD of the two films in the series - the Barrack Street and Ballybricken films in the very near future. Watch this space!
