  • Short Summary

    Running and pole vaulting at the All-Irish Schools' Athletics Championships.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "All-Ireland Schools' Championships bring out galaxy of budding Athletic Champions. (Exclusive)"

    Ireland, not clear whether Northern Ireland or Eire, Southern Ireland, Republic of Ireland.

    Boys race towards camera in sprint.

    Good shots of boys doing the pole vault. (They aren't leaping very high but its still quite impressive.) (The writing on the roof of the Grandstand is in Irish, suggesting that the contest is taking place in the South).

    The starter's gun fires and a group of young men set off on a running race. Shots of the men racing - it looks like a middle distance event.

    Sound Track Missing.
