Share your memories of Clerys
Long before Facebook check-ins, before The Spire, and even before mobile phones, there was one simple method for people arranging to get together in Dublin – 'I'll meet you under Clerys' clock.'

Clerys had a ballroom. The pianist with the resident band was John Reidy. He became much better known when he changed it to Seán Ó Riada.— ÉannaBrophy (@EannaBrophy) September 18, 2012
On this historic day, nostalgia rules the roost and we're looking for you to share your memories of Clerys, and who you met under their famous clock.
