    Full title reads: "Interview with Mr. Alfred Byrne, Lord Mayor of Dublin".

    Eire (Southern Ireland, Republic of Ireland).

    C/U of Mr. B. sitting in an arm chair in a garden. He wears his mayoral chain. He delivers a speech about the problems in Ireland. He assures the viewers that there is no serious animosity between the Irish and the British peoples and there is no animosity between the people of Northern and Southern Ireland.

    He goes on to suggest a removal of border between north and south. He criticises men on both sides of argument (unionists and republicans) for using abusive language in political debates. According to him, this behaviour is detrimental to long term cause - a free and prosperous Ireland.
