Beatles superfan donates rare memorabilia collection to Dublin museum

Tuesday, January 01, 2019

A Beatles superfan has donated a rare and treasured collection of band memorabilia to a museum in Dublin.

Terri Colman-Black spent decades buying unique pieces from shops and newsagents around Dublin and went on to build up a treasure trove of relics dedicated to the Fab Four.

At the age of 14, Ms Colman-Black’s love for John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr was compounded after she went to their first and only concert in Dublin in November 1963.

Among some of the items on display at the Irish Rock N Roll Museum Experience in Dublin are the ticket and programme from their Irish concert, a George Harrison model kit and Beatles magazines.

The mother-of-two said she started to buy the collectables as she wanted to surround herself with the Beatles.

“In those days you didn’t have a lot of money, people didn’t think about memorabilia,” she said.

“I started to buy things because I just wanted them around me, to stick up on the wall, to put in my bedroom. More and more things became available, I got as many pictures as I could get.
