What Frankie Byrne used to deal with - Ireland in the eighties

video


We spoke today about Frankie Byrne and our lunchtime radio memories of her.  A true legend.  The clip above, supplied by Chelski, makes reference to the sexuality of holy Cathlolic Ireland in the era in which she operated. 

Below is a picture of the kind of behaviour which eventually forced her to leave the airwaves - the eighties saw a new open, raw, coarse sexuality equally at home in the open air as it was within the confines of the marital bedroom.

This picture was taken in one of Ireland's most famous hotspots for orgies and rave parties in those early days of hedonism - Luggala, Co Wicklow.  Absolutely disgraceful.
