Garret Fitzgerald visits Millstreet

Last Wednesday’s RTÉ aired the “Two Tribes” documentary , about the diverging paths taken by Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael in the post-civil war landscape and their political dominance over the last 100 years. To our surprise, there was a very short clip of the Fine Gael leader Garret Fitzgerald’s visit to Millstreet.

I’m guessing it’s in the run-up to the 1987 General Election, but I’m open to correction. Does anyone recognise any of the faces?
