‘Bohemian’ Ballydehob was (and still is) a cosmopolitan hub of creativity, particularly during the 1960s and 70s. In addition to the artists and craftworkers listed here, the community attracted musicians, film-makers, dancers and writers. Some made the village their permanent home; others just passed through. BAM is working on a detailed inventory of those who came: if anyone can contribute to these records, please contact us.
