Irish students impersonate prominent politicians in rag parade.
Dublin, Southern Ireland, Eire, Republic of Ireland.
Title: "UNIVERSITY COLLEGE 'RAG'. Prominent Politicians of all parties are impersonated in this light-hearted frolic".
Panning shot of a group of (mostly male) students in fancy dress. A few seconds of white spacing follows. M/S of two students with black make-up on standing on top of a Romanesque pillar, they mess about with a placard, at one point pretending it is a guitar, they are watched from the ground by other students.
M/S of a man in spectacles and a mackintosh covered in arrows (like a convicts uniform) - looks like he is impersonating Republican, Eamon De Valera. Another student beside him wears a top hat and smokes a cigar - could be impersonating Winston Churchill.
Note: for more shots of this rag parade and of male and female students graduating from University College, please see records for DEGREE DAY IS JOY-DAY - DUBLIN - and BOBBED BACHELORS - DUBLIN, both in G 1136 also.
