- This building used to be called the DREAMLAND BALLROOM in
Athy during the 1960's. Lots of the top
Irish Showband's used to play here every Saturday night and it
was open until 2 O'clock in the morning. People travelled
from all over the surrounding counties by car, bus
and even on bicycles.
It is said that Thin Lizzy once
plaid here in the early 70s. The venue was also used for
roller skating on Saturdays and Sundays; wow happy days
gone by. This comment sent in by

These were / are just some of Irelands most popular Showband's that visited

Dreamland Ballroom during the 1950's and 1960's that I
went to see but I am sure there were many
more to be added to the list.
