'Driving in Dublin in 1974' YouTube video goes viral

Driving down Dame Street
A beautiful video posted on YouTube by "willmcq" is spreading like wildfire on Twitter and Facebook.

He describes the video as "My dad and his friend filmed themselves driving around Dublin city centre in 1974. They drove down Grafton Street and up by Dame Street by the central bank (still being built) then down past Trinity College and up to the top of O'Connell street. Check out the flares and 1970s cars."

Whether his father had the foresight to add the soundtrack or the addition of "Canned Heat's "On the Road Again" or it was willmcq's doing the music fits in perfectly with this incredible footage.

Here's the video:
