Hall’s Pictorial Weekly in Rathmore, Co. Kerry, Ireland 1974

Rathmore, Co. Kerry, Ireland 1974

The people and the village of Rathmore are the stars of this opening sequence for ‘Hall’s Pictorial Weekly’.

Undeterred by the wet weather, it is all smiles for the camera as the people of Rathmore, young and old, go about their daily business.

Once a week from June to September, the ‘Hall’s Pictorial Weekly’ film crew would arrive at a town or village in any county in Ireland. They would film the people and the place and return to RTÉ where the footage was edited and put to music.

This short film of around one minute’s duration formed part of the opening sequence for that week’s episode of ‘Hall’s Pictorial Weekly’. As it was not advertised as part of the programme billings in the RTÉ Guide or newspapers, people watched in the hope their town or village would have its moment of fame.

This episode of ‘Hall’s Pictorial Weekly’ was broadcast on 10 January 1974.
