  1. In 1989 Christmas day had fallen on a Monday for the first time since 1978, in later years it fell on Monday in 1995, 2000 and 2006 will so again in 2017 it was a day that shocked the world when Romania’s then President was shot dead. 2 years later in 1991 Christmas day fell on a Wednesday unlike this year 1968, 1974, 1985, 1996, 2002 or even 2019 its was the birth of a Modern Russia and the break up of the USSR, likewise in 2014 could mark a break up on the Great Britain does any body I haven’t seen (1962- 1973), (1975), (1977), or even (1990- 1991) Christmas copies of the RTE guide yet.


  2. That “TV Rentals” ad where it says: “see the latest in… pre-recorded tape libraries”. Are they talking about videos to rent? What a weird way to describe it if so! I mean, video rental shops were certainly well there at that stage. We used one in Ranelagh Road at that time, opposite the Bamboo take-away. For the video (and telly) we rented from Tele-Rents at the top of Grafton Street, where Butler’s is now. Still have the rental books somewhere. Guilty conscience probably – we rarely paid on time.


  3. Do you have any “HB Hazel brook Farm” Ice Cream adverts from years past including ones from (1961-2014) all HB Ice Cream for the HB Ice Cream range. As shown also on television as well in Magazines.
