    Students in fancy dress from the Dublin Veterinary College on their 'Rag' Day.

  • Description

    Southern Ireland, Eire, Republic of Ireland.

    Title: "STUDENTS at PLAY. Dublin Veterinary College 'Rag' Day at Ballsbridge".

    Panning shot along a row of students dressed as clowns banging drums and blowing hooters. C/U of two students - one is in drag, the other wears a false beard covering his entire face. M/S of students dressed as clowns pretending to waltz for the camera. M/S of two male students dressed as racial stereotypes; both are 'blacked up', one is dressed like the house keeper in 'Tom and Jerry' - definitely not politically correct!! They dance about in front of the camera.
