We’ve scanned this feature on the Limerick City Scene from New Spotlight, November, 1970. According to the article, Limerick had a population of 60,000 with almost 25,000 teenagers.

On that week, Freda Payne was no 1 in the Irish Charts with Band of Gold.

Eagle eyed reader (see comments below) has identified Miss C Holman – pictured above in Trudy’s Boutique – as Celia Holman-Lee (Wikipedia)

  1. That C Holman is presumably Celia Holman-Lee?

  2. One of the lads from the unbelievables played in a beat band in limerick in the early 1970’s.good to see Reform getting a mention.a talented beat band who later went a bit showbandish doing a Queen impression act,were often wrongly labelled as a showband.Limerick also had a huge skinhead scene,and many google-able articles in the Limerick Leader comment on the skinhead action on the terraces of the markets Field.See also from Limerick With Love photo exhibition for pics of them from the early 1970’s.
