    Ok so geo-locked.
    That's a shame.

    From 1959 if I read the blackboard right.
    I don't know if it's geo blocked though.

    Was able to see it using a VPN. Filmed around Carna in 1959 by the looks of it. Date on the blackboard is the 17th of July, 1959. There's also a bit at the start about Féile Mhic Dara, which is on the 16th of July.

    I know a German tv channel did some recording in Spiddal in the early 60's but not sure if anyone ever came across it.

    There was another one on the same evening as that that I haven't been able to find.

    The opening scenes were recorded in Belfast, it was still just before the troubles started. It was also partially recorded around Connemara and featured some lady who then moved to Dublin and bought a motorbike.
    The IRA also made an appearance at a few stages during it.


    This one hasn't appeared in the player yet. I'll keep an eye out for it and maybe it might show up.
