The Beatles 50 Years Ago Today : Thursday, November 7, 1963

Dublin Airport, Dublin, Eire and Adelphi Cinema, Middle Abbey St. Dublin, Eire

The Beatles only appearance in Ireland. On their arrival at Dublin Airport they were interviewed by reporter Frank Hall for the RTE (Radio Telefis Eireann) news-magazine television program "In Town", transmitted this same evening, 7:55 to 8:00 pm.

The Beatle's first feature film, "A Hard Day's Night", though it was five months away from gaining that title, first took shape on this day, when screenwriter Alun Owen, appointed by the film's producer Walter Shenson at the group's suggestion, began a three-day observation of the Beatles and their increasingly chaotic lifestyle. He flew into Dublin wit the group from London Airport, and stayed with them up to and including the engagement at East Ham on the 9th.
