 the film is definitely from the 1970s. I bought the footage from the pathe website and it’s catalogued as the 1970s. In pretty much most footage of Dublin in the sixties the women are wearing beehives in this film there are none. The swinging sixties barely registered in Dublin so hence the dated feel to it. The footage of the children on Synge St is classic 1970s and Nelson’s Pilar isn’t even visible in the O’Connell St shots. I hope this helps.
