Student Documentary Clery's Clock; Seeking Participants!

    I am a 4th year Media Arts student in DIT Aungier Street and am currently producing a short radio documentary as part of my final year assessment.

    My documentary is centered around Clery's clock as an iconic object in Dublin and a well-established meeting place.

    I have conducted two interviews to date, and am looking for more people to share any stories they may have of waiting under neath the clock, whether it was for a date, to meet friends, etc. I would also love to interview anyone who happened to be at the unveiling of the new clock in 1990.

    There is no story too small and what I am to achieve with this documentary is create a sense of nostalgia and celebrate an iconic location in Dublin.

    The interview would require a half hour of your time, an hour at the most. The interview would be recorded, of course, but no images or pictures need to be captured. I am very flexible with time and locations.

    I would very much appreciate it if anyone could get back to me with an interest in being involved in the documentary.

    Many thanks, and awaiting your reply,

    If you're doing a documentary on it, it is probably best you spell it right- its Clery's, not Cleary's!

    I've given it a plug on CHTM and hope you get a few replies- good luck!

    I remember this one time back in the nineties I arranged to meet a friend there at 8PM to go for a few pints. I got there at 7:55; he showed up a few minutes later then we went to the pub. The end.
