Town's past caught on camera as Golf Club screens 'Underground'

Members enjoyed some familiar scenery as the lights were dimmed in Enniscorthy Golf Club's premises for a screening of the 1960s film 'Underground'.

The old film was made in Enniscorthy and offered an hour of local locations including St. Aidan's Cathedral, Vinegar Hill, the Promenade, the Old Barracks and the maltings (which is now Dunnes Stores). Other prominent locations were the old Foley's garage, Railway Square and train station, where a young Nick Cosgrave showed up on screen as a menacing SS officer in the World War Two drama. Another memorable scene was filmed on Friary Hill, opposite Letts brewery.

The night was rounded off by club member Joe '90' Murphy assuming the role of DJ to play sounds of the sixties.
