Photographer Padraig Kennelly describes the changes in the dance halls in County Kerry, Ireland, from the outdoor dancing platforms and orchestras that played foxtrots and waltzes in the 1950s, to the era of the Show bands in the 1960s, who took over the dance halls with the latest radio tunes from the U.S.
