Touist, Co. Kerry:
This documentary features a place, which very few people ever heard mentioned – Touist, Co. Kerry. Touist’s problem is depopulation and the answer which it is trying, on a basis of community effort, is to sell itself as a tourist resort. Radharc gives an interim report on the progress to date and shows a community that has decided to face its problems instead of running away from them. Touist in 1840 had a population of 7,400. Today (1963), it has a population less than 900. One marriage took place between 1959 and 1963 in the parish.
