The Western All-Stars, 1963

After the war, there was a bit of a building boom of dance halls around the country. Radio had introduced popular music to the general public and more and more people wanted to move to the music, so dance bands began to form. Some of those in Galway were Des Fretwells’ Band, Maxie Dooley’s Musicmakers, The Bill Keaveney Orchestra, and Gerry Cahill’s Dance Band. They played the popular music of the day, were mostly seated on stage and reading the music from stands in front of them. Then along came Bill Haley and rock and roll and everything changed. The showbands had arrived. Music stands were forgotten, musicians played standing up and literally began to move with the times.

Mexican food, one of the biggest food trends of the last decade, shows no signs of slowing down here just yet. Just a few short years ago we got what passes for Mexican food from a yellow box in the supermarket. The finished product often appeared to have already been eaten by someone else. If you attempted to make your own, shopping for chili peppers was an adventure, avocados were an oddity and tortillas were totally out of the question. Latin-American foods such as nachos, chips and salsa, fajitas, quesadillas, burritos and beans are now an everyday sight on the dinner tables of Ireland and have become as common place as bacon and cabbage.
