A photo slideshow looking back at Kevin Power's "The Blackwater Inn" on South Main Street, Youghal.

'The Blackwater Inn', South Main Street, Youghal, was the first proper 'lounge' bar in town designed with the more comfortable seating and plush interior décor.

Proprietor Kevin Power converted the old bar into the modern style back in the sixties in keeping with a rapidly changing Ireland. It was around this time that it was becoming more acceptable for young ladies to drink in public houses.

The design of the new lounge was by local architect Raymond Morris. The barmen at the time wore a white jacket with red trim and every pint was served with a beer mat. Some of the bar staff who worked there were Charlie O'Neill, the late Jim Hogan, Martin Hennessy, and the Cooney brothers.
Well known British journalist Claud Cockburn was a regular drinker there and would send copy to Fleet Street, London, from the public phone in the bar. 

The new lounge proved to be extremely popular with locals and tourists alike and as time went on singing and entertainment was provided. 

The musical husband and wife duo 'Pat and Eleanor' were one of the regular bands that played there. Kevin has long retired now but the premises is still as popular as ever and called 'Hennessy's Bar'.

Video - YOUGHAL RAILWAY STATION 1954.

Cork - Youghal - Railway. Photos by James Burke back in 1954.

These fascinating images were captured all on one day by the late James Burke (Chemist shop, North Main St.)

This was a pivotal time on the Irish railway network with steam being slowly phased out and gradually replaced with diesel...and be in the city within the hour.

According to The Cork Examiner reports of up to 5,000 passengers came to the beach in Youghal on a fine sunny Sunday. Incredible to think that many would visit on one day.

High-Wire Act at Dolphin's square, Youghal. circa 1970s.

These extraordinary feats of balance on the high wire were filmed at the car park in Dolphin's Square, Youghal, in the early 1970's by Billy Matthes.

The travelling acrobats just arrived in town for the day, set up the pylons and high wire and treated the townspeople to this spectacular event.

They then went round with a hat to collect some money which they rightly earned and moved on to the next town.
Film clip courtesy of the Matthes family.
