The Year of the Gathering (DVD)
People from all over the world came back to Ireland, to celebrate their Irish family roots and gather up important memories from our heritage and traditions. One of the biggest events of of the year is The Fingal Vintage Show at the Hoey family farm at Lusk near Dublin. It is a vintage machinery spectacular, which includes lorries, cars, tractors and farm machinery from days gone by.
Most of the vehicles are perfectly restored by their owners, who have worked with them over the years or have fond memories from their childhood. This DVD provides a unique record of rural life through the 50's, 60's and 70's. We see the change from working with horses and steam engines to the tractors and lorries and all the other implements and equipment that replaced them.
The large selection of lorries and buses that were used in everyday life will evoke nostalgia among those old enough to remember and a fascination among the young. Also features a display of the latest large machinery used in the fields.
