PROGRAMME 2: TOP OF THE MORNING
This tourist-style film promoted sale of Irish Sweepstake Tickets at a time when direct advertising of the tickets had been banned in the U.K. and elsewhere. Following a sequence on the Sweepstakes Draw, it visits a series of unusual locations such as the Old Spa and Pump Room in Lucan, a Feis in Navan, and St. Patrick’s Day celebrations at Castleknock College and College Green.
