This Picture From 1969 Shows Our Newspapers' Very Irish Take On The Moonlanding
Sure aren't they great all the same, going up to the aul' moon and stuff?

This photo, published today on the wonderful Photos of Dublin Twitter account, shows a newspaper seller from around the time – and the display headline on the sign beside him is just perfect.
