Waterford Election - De Valera Helps.
Republic of Ireland (Eire, Southern Ireland).
Good shots of campaigning and polls. Opens w/ candidate speaking from a balcony & cheering crowd in street. Some men in street cheering. Nice shot of group of working-class people; w/ several women in front; cheering; waving flags; a soldier in FG joking w/ the young women; later CU soldier & women laughing; shots of soldier cheering w/ others; etc.- seems a bit unusual.
A very young-looking Eamon De Valera in street making speech while a small group of people listen. Another politician (man from the balcony) in the street speaking to working-class crowd; people listening intently. Shot of some men pouring out of a building w/ bars on its windows; a large crowd gathered in front; all cheering wildly. Large crowd heading away from camera; still cheering & waving.
