No publisher has been announced – probably the Hotel itself – and I can’t tell you the name of the artist. A very nice early 1950s (?) card of this oasis on the north side of Dublin.

Directly opposite Westland Row (Pearse) station. The West of Ireland railway station was the starting point in 1925 and as services gradually moved to Kingsbridge (Heuston) and Amiens Road (Connolly) it lost its importance and may hasten the demise of the hotel. . I remember it being demolished in the 1970s and it has been demolished for a long time.

Less fortunate than the Royal Hotel in Valencia, the Imperial Hotel found itself at the center of the Easter Rising in 1916 and experienced the consequences as before and after the show.

The smaller rooms to order on this card are from the same period as the Great Southern Hotel (above) and they say the hotel was run by HRH The Prince of Wales.

Used by the post office in 1914, from when the hotel had no problem nailing its paint to the mast! Amazingly, even in the middle of the republic, the Royal Hotel survived

Silk bags and earrings come to mind with this card. A building with no architectural merit and a bad view will not encourage me to book! 1970 (?) Card published by Mount Salus Press, Dublin.

This card with a view of a ‘big’ house nearby can leave itself open to false advertising claims as at first glance it is a picture of a hotel. publisher unknown.

The hotel was demolished a few years ago while the ‘main’ building survives in private ownership. The title of Charlemont survived and the 15th Viscount lived in Canada.

Official postcard published by Carmel Press Ltd., Dublin. It’s hard to date but it seems to be from the 1950s – the hotel is still in the same place but has improved a lot.

There is a hotel in this place for over 400 years. The hotel overlooks the confluence of the Avonmore, Avoca and Goldmine rivers and the bridge from which it takes its name. Woodenbridge was once a junction on the Dublin / Wexford line but the train did not stop here.

A brief search (1947/51) was led by the 8th Earl of Wicklow in an attempt to keep the Shelton Abbey property in trust. However, the duty of death forced the sale of the house in 1951 and the beautiful building was an open prison for decades. Playboy model and actress Jayne Mansfield was due to perform a cabaret act at the Mount Brandon Hotel in Tralee on April 23, 1967. , But the all-powerful Catholic Church is not having it, says Dan Buckley.

One day in the land of black and white Fine Gael TD for Laois-Offaly declared, ironically, that there was no sex in Ireland before television.

What he said was, in a critique of The Late Late Show, that “sex never came to Ireland until Telefís Éireann was on television”.

He had a point, in the sense that there was little or no public discussion of sexuality until national television on New Year’s Eve in 1961.

When the service first started, whippersnapper broadcasters like Gay Byrne knew the sexual capers would keep viewers hooked. He is the only man in Ireland who can hold a million Irish women unconscious for hours.

So it’s no surprise that the arrival of movie star, sex siren and Playboy model Jayne Mansfield in April 1967 was like manna from hell for the fledgling television service.

The same year Irish film censors cut Dustin Hoffman’s film The Graduate and changed Mrs. Robinson to Mrs. Doyle – more interested in a cuppa than dating young student Benjamin.

As soon as Mansfield arrived at Shannon Airport, Bill O’Herlihy, as a young TV reporter, was sent to interview the star, whom he described as a “working-class Marilyn Monroe”.

Witness her impressive entrance, her handkerchief-sized skirt, her fashion accessory in the form of a chihuahua dog she’s holding and most importantly, her big breasts that come in seconds before taking a break in Shannon’s VIP lounge.

In the United States, Mansfield is considered a living parody of Monroe, although she enjoyed success in comedy directed by Frank Tashlin, especially The Girl Can’t Help It (1956), and Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter? (1957).

By the time he arrived in Ireland, his film career had dwindled but his 40-21-35 figures remained intact and he attracted crowds wherever he went.

Mansfield was due to play a cabaret at the Mount Brandon Hotel in Tralee on Sunday 23 April, but the strong Catholic Church would not have it, considering that, like her other films, she was too hot to release. .

In a thunderous condemnation, Bishop Denis Moynihan of Kerry described him as the ‘God of Love’ and had a letter read from the pulpit at a public service in every Catholic church in the diocese, ordering his parishioners not to attend the event.

The local parish priest, Monsignor John Lane, went further, calling on the Tralee faithful to distance themselves “from this attempt to tarnish the name of our town for filthy lucre”.

The ‘gross profit’ seems to indicate that a ticket to a gig costs ten shillings and a performer earns £1,000 for singing six songs in 35 minutes.

He was ‘read’ from the altar in every parish church on Sunday morning when he arrived in Tralee. Bishop Moynihan’s conviction shocked the management of the Mount Brandon Hotel.

In a hastily arranged press conference, hotel officials announced the event’s cancellation, citing problems with their support group as the reason. Divine intervention or not, the band’s car breaks down on the way from Dublin to Tralee and Ms Mansfield misses her first cabaret performance in Kerry.
