Dan Joe Kelleher and the incredible TV station he set up in 1980s’ Co Cork

The rooms of LTV’s Dan Joe Kelleher home in Carriganima are a floor-to-ceiling walk-in library bursting with VHS tapes and DVDs of concerts and community commemorations. We are lucky to have his foresight to record  and store a snapshot of our local area for posterity.

In an article in today’s Irish Examiner, he is interviewed on how he started, how he built it up, and how changing formats of media worried him that his archive was becoming obsolete, and how he has for some time been committing his vast archive of recordings  to the internet for an invaluable record of the era from the 1970s to present day.

  1. We thank the many people who have alerted us to the fact that Dan Joe Kelleher’s excellent Video of the official launch of “Picture Millstreet” on 9th Dec. 1997 was now available online on YouTube on https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ua0kgEJmzBg. It was indeed a superb occasion and so delighted that quite a people now gone to their Eternal Reward are especially remembered in this superb feature …. And great to see the many other people who attended the historic event. Dan Joe did a magnificent job in this special recording….The major “Irish Examiner” feature today (27th July 2022) on Dan Joe’s amazing Local Television pioneering work over many decades ago is so very richly deserved. Sincere congratulations, Dan Joe.
