Has anyone got any photos of the punks in Dublin in the late 1980s?

I've been hunting around the net for photos and videos of the punk scene in Dublin in the 1980s. Not much out there unfortunately. Has anyone got any photos to post?

Found this video that has a few familiar faces in it. (Sorry, can't remember how to embed videos)

Is that high cost of living?? Hah. Just realised I've never actually heard the original

There's a book coming out some time with photos of loads of "anti-social youth cults". There's a youtube collage of it somewhere...

Saw a photo of Galway John amongst that lot, anyone know where he ended up?
Also, anyone remember little Karen. She was always taking photos. I last saw her in London in the early 90s.

These Pictures are the business!! Great to see the old Dublin where everyone didn't walk about looking the same.. I remember it all as a kid.. Wish it was still the same..
Would love an all nighter Northern Soul dancehall.. Somewhere to do the moonstomp... (sigh)....

It really is, great photos. I have vague memories of seeing punks in and around town growing up but nothing more. The pictures seem like a lifetime ago until you realise some of the car reg's and the Ireland jersey's.

Thanks to whoever posted them, great stuff.
