A wonderful atmosphere and an inspiration for me in setting up the Dance Factory in Drogheda where girls danced with boys and boys danced with boys and no-one really cared at all which is how i think it should be. I believe the Hirshfield was fire-bombed in the early 80’s. Did a quick google but not much info about it. Tonie Walsh was mentioned as a prime mover and someone who has documented gay history in Ireland. Comments are closed.
