    Location of events unknown - probably Dublin, Eire (Southern Ireland, Republic of Ireland).

    Various shots of a carnival passing through the streets as part of the Grand National Sweepstake Procession. Decorated floats with themes of whiskey, Guinness, Irish lighting and electrical goods and 'Mother Ireland' move slowly through the streets. A man climbs up the steps of a float to shake hands with 'Mother Ireland'.

    Brief shot of some girls in fancy military-style costumes who seem to be gathering tickets for the sweepstake in a large hall.
