My mother recently found this souvenir programme from our trip to Butlin’s Mosney in 1965. This A5 sized booklet has 74 pages and is in black and white except for the colour front and back covers. The content and layout is very similar to our other programme from 1962 – see previous post.
This 1965 version includes a picture of The ‘Don’, Donnacha O’Dea, a teenager then, but later to become an Irish Olympic swimmer and now professional poker player.

We’ve included a selection of adverts but have reserved a few tobacco ads for our forthcoming feature on Irish Cigarette Adverts in the 60’s.

  1. Omg. How things have changed!! Pity they had to Spoil what used to be the best time ever. They should still have all the Compitions like they used too. It made your Holiday! I can remember how much fun the “Good Old Day’s were. Bring Back those Day’s Enjoyed looking at all the things you had put together “Well Done!!

  2. I have spent many a Happy Holiday at Butlins. In my time. I went to Filey where Rock worked. I can remember how he used to ride around the Dining Hall every morning on his Bike. We went to Minehead Butlins for my Mums 40th Birthday. All the Redcoats gave her the “Yorkshire Bumps!” As this is where we come from. I still now Holiday At Butlins,but it some how as lost the “Spark!” of Yesteryear. Wished they would bring Back the old times. The whole camp in the days gone by was a lot happier and the whole atmosphere as a whole.

  3. Say ‘Hello, nice day’ to a stranger nowadays & they’ll think you’re a stalker ! People mucked in & had the craic more back then.
