thanks to sandybottom for bringing this to my attention, I don't know who is behind it or who made it (although Micheal has an inkling) - it also seems to be cut a little short toward the end but no matter this is utterly brilliant.

everything gets a mention here, and is fascinating to watch





Whoever did that gets a thumbs up from me :thumbs:

I think the ice cream man is Malachy Burns and the driver of the Jaunting car is Xpaddy's father-in-law, Tommy Mc Gill. ~x(

What a wonderful piece of footage and many thanks for allowing us to see it! Lots of memories of the train station and the Baths in their glory days!!
The jaunting cars in Omeath are still around I think and this is inspiring me to take a little jaunt next summer.

Very good work Brian. I really enjoyed watching that. As said before I remember seeing that on the TV and I also think that it may be recorded on video somewhere in our house. It's so clear...

Thanks to whoever put it on-line......... :clapping:

Absolutely brilliant. I am emailing all the family now especially the nephews and nieces to let them know just what it was like when we had a train service into Warrenpoint. I shall be watching this a few more times!!!!! you can definitely bet on that and yes I noticed at the start of the clip---- the ice cream man was Malachy Burns.

i do believe that is my dad pearse heaton in this just after the longer clip of an icecream man there is a 2/3second clip of another thats the 1 i believe is my dad only thing is he did this in the early 60's rather than 50's.

I've changed the main title to the 60's as I think that is when most of the footage was shot :D

A lovely peice of history captureed on film.It's all the more interesting for a "blow in"like myself.I wasnt around when the railway was up and running and it was great to see the baths as they were.The 'point has seen many changes so its good to get the chance to step back in time to see it in bygone times.Thats why the photos and comments made by the forum about day to day life now will be equally of interest to future generations. :genius:
