TRAMORE TALES – A SOCIAL HISTORY OF TRAMORE

O’Sheas Hotel, Tramorem, 3rd July at 8 p.m.

Waterford Youth Arts invites you along to the official screening of Tramore Tales – A Social History of Tramore, there seventh production in this long running series of Social History Films on the local Area.

Screening in O’Sheas Hotel on the 3rd of July at 3pm and 8pm, this free production is not one to miss if you want to learn more about the history and the people of Tramore from their own perspective.

This ninety minute long, documentary style film is a mix of interviews, old photos clips of the local activities and also some local music. The film looks at old Tramore when it was quite a small town but with big families. We hear stories about tragedies, romance, dances, Race Week, bits of history and tall tales, stories of emigration and great pubs, Cinema and train stories, learning to swim and heading ‘Down Around’. It captures little glimpses of life today and we see the cockle men in action, hear surfing stories and see the road bowling of Fenor.

DVD copies of the film will be available to purchase after each screening for ten euros as well as in local shops and in Waterford Youth Arts up in Barrack Street in the days following the showing.

This will definitely be a great and nostalgic event, so invite your friends and come along to one or both of these screenings
