Preview - Dublin’s workhorses - No. 25


In this film of Dublin street life we see the last of the dray-men and wagoners going about their business delivering coal, and working the fruit and vegetable markets. We meet the shopkeeper who sells oats for the horses, the farrier who shoes them, the traditional collar and harness maker, and the milk rounds-man and his horse. It includes archival photographs of Johnson Mooney & O’Brien bread vans, and The Court Laundry’s wagons.     Made in 1983.

Commentary- Éamonn Mac Thomáis; Music- Terry Odlum;     Running time - 26 minutes
