Tobogganing at the Phoenix Park in Dublin during 'The Big Snow' of 1982.

There was heavy snow across Ireland in January 1982 resulting in traffic chaos, fuel and food shortages, and the closure of schools and workplaces. However, it wasn't all doom and gloom as many took the opportunity to enjoy the snow in their time off work and school. 

'Anything Goes' presenters Mary FitzGerald and Aonghus McAnally joined in with the fun and games as hundreds of people, young and old, took their toboggans to the Phoenix Park. The snow slopes of the Phoenix Park became a playground for tobogganing with a range of improvised sleighs from car car bonnets to plastic bags.
This 'Anything Goes' report was broadcast on 22 January 1982.
