Eamonn Keating, Clogheen, who made the popular movies
Ray Murray, a son-in-law of Eamonn Keating from Clogheen has been in touch to draw our attention to a home video produced by Eamonn in the 70s and 80s.
Eamonn, who is now in his mid 80s, was the proprietor of Keatings Bar on Main Street, but was also a keen movie enthusiast.
While the family were going through many hours of his 8mm home movies they discovered 90 minutes of footage from 1977 to 1988 that would be of interest to people from Clogheen and maybe to the wider Tipperary population.
The link is Watch Eamonn Keating's film from the 70s/80s or people can search Youtube for Clogheen Movie.
Eamonn has given permission to share the link with whoever would like to see it.
