Stella Ballroom, Shannon Street
A real down memory lane picture for many of the middle-aged parents of today. The Stella was the place to be seen in the 50s and 60s and regularly rocked to sell-out audiences. Ger Cusack told us that the ballroom possessed a wonderful stage (see Page 14). The venue was two-tiered with a splendid view of the dance floor from the balcony. In earlier days the dance hall was lit up with a massive chandelier. There was no alcohol sold in dance halls when this picture was taken.
