The 1960s was a decade of change in Ireland - RTÉ television began broadcasting, cheaper air travel was opening up the world, while in fashion skirts were getting shorter and hair was getting bigger. Nowhere were these changes more obvious than in Dublin, and they are captured in this fascinating collection of images from the archives of the Irish Independent.
