  • Description

    Full titles read: "Dancers Rehearse - for the forthcoming Tailteann Games, some of the Irish National Dances. (Exclusive Pathe Pictures.)"

    Eire (Southern Ireland, Republic of Ireland).

    Various shots show six dancers, two male and four female, rehearsing a traditional Irish dance. A man sits beside them playing Irish pipes (Uillean pipes) and a small crowd of people watch in a spectator stand behind them. Then two of the girls and one of the men do a dance together, then one girl and one man. Good footage of traditional Irish dancing.
