Phil Lynott - Old town

A classic Dublin music video: Phil Lynott – Old Town (1982)

It’s one of those great Dublin pub quiz questions. What links the bandstand in Herbert Park and the Long Hall on South Great George’s Street?

Well, both feature heavily in the video to Phill Lynott’s classic 1982 single Old Town. The video was produced by Dave Heffernan and stars the actress Fiona McKenna.

The Dublin locations are as follows:

- Opening scene on Ha’Penny bridge
- Ringsend
- Grafton Street
- The Long Hall
- Bandstand (Herbert Park)
- Ringsend Pier
