ollowing on from our posting of the British Pathé News’ recently released archive footage of Greystones Gala Day 1926 – featuring swimming and diving challenges down at the harbour – we’ve unearthed a second Gala Day.
This one is from 1928, and there’s a remarkable shot of a packed fishing wall harbour, lined from beginning to end with happy, smiling spectators.
As an extra-added treat, there’s also a short clip of outtakes from the original 1926 archive newsreel.
Not exactly a blooper reel, but, hey, you can’t have chips with every meal. Despite what Joe Sweeney tells ya.
