Holidays in Ireland:
This film is a tongue-in-cheek inquiry into the way Irish people spend their holidays at home. It was filmed in Ballybunnion on an August weekend. Visitors and residents in the area are interviewed.

Traditional Prayers:
This item shows how in rural Ireland there are preserved traditional prayers to accompany all actions of daily life: rising, eating, crossing streams, when the clock strikes, raking out the fire and going to bed.

The final item is a short story from Kenmare. It tells how the people of Kenmare got a church, how the church got a steeple, and how the steeple got a weathercock on top.
