HAIL GLORIOUS SAINT PATRICK
A meticulous record of the Patrician Year 1961, a year of religious celebration loosely marking 1,500 years of devotion to St. Patrick in Ireland. The film features the visit of Papal Legate Cardinal Gregorio Pietro Agagianian to Ireland where he is greeted by President Éamon de Valera, Taoiseach Seán Lemass and Archbishop John Charles McQuaid. He travels to Maynooth, Cork City, Thurles, and Dublin city, including suburbs Whitehall, Kimmage, Ringsend and Blackrock.
