Audio Recording of Opening of Hall in Effin 1958

Recently a 60 yr old audio reel recording of the opening of the Hall in 1958 came to light thanks to John Upton who found a collection of audio recordings of Fr. Browne. Digitised by Michael Mulcahy for the collection holder John Upton.

John Upton found this blog on the hall in Effin and contacted me to get some photos to use in the video included in link below.

Follow this link to listen to that night,  sadly many of those voices have now passed on to their eternal reward.

This 55 minute long recording captures long lost voices of a county Limerick community.
