A documentary film on the social changes to Youghal town during the boom years.

This film that takes a contemplative look at what happens to a town when all its industry disappears, its economic centre collapses and speculators change the landscape. This is a story of how a town can effectively die when politicians make the wrong decisions and when politics has no vision. With interviews from experts and local businesses, the film reflects on how greed and apathy led to the neglect of a town throughout the Irish ‘boom years’.

Film launched Monday 17th December 2012 8pm
