« Go back
For almost forty years the National Ballroom in Dublin’s Parnell Square was the premier dancing venue for thousands of young people. Through the war years, the jiving fifties, the showbands of the 60’s and the disco’s of the 70’s ‘The National’ was a place where people came looking for love, found love and lost love. The ballroom still stands today but has long since ceased to be a place of dance. The high ceilings, stage lights and velvet couches are now coated in dust. While many summers have passed since the sliding glass roof was last opened and the sprung maple floor polished, you can still sense that ‘the National’ was a special place that was the ballroom of dreams. Funded by the Irish Film Board, Dublin Corporation Arts Office and RTE.
