RTE recently put up a nice video from their archives. The short clip is a news report from twenty years ago, when Allen visited Dublin.
It’s only a couple of minutes long, and reporter Paul Reynolds asks the guests of the Shelbourne Hotel is they’ve seen Allen. It’s pretty interesting how much interest he caused, with people lining up for glance.

What was he doing in Dublin? Perhaps to promote Manhattan Murder Mystery, which was about to be released at the time. Or maybe he’s just on holidays. Let’s face it – he does what he wants.
Dublin’s another great European city. Perhaps Allen should shoot a film there. There’s no shortage of great acting talent from that area.
