  • Short Summary

    Students in Ireland celebrate their graduation.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "Students' Day Out. University students celebrate Degree Day in the usual fashion".

    Eire (Southern Ireland, Republic of Ireland).

    M/S of a fancy dress parade led by students on horseback and on a car dressed in military style costumes. M/S of group of students costumes, in the foreground one student in military uniform is giving a Nazi-style salute - a parody of Mussolini perhaps. Other students are dressed as tramps, one is dressed like bishop / pope - all seem to have satirical meanings that have been lost in the mists of time ... M/S of group of male and female students in gowns and mortar boards, each holds a scroll - looks like part of graduation ceremony. More shots of fancy dress parade.

    Cuts exist - see separate records for details.
