The first three television continuity announcers tour Ireland before the opening night of Irish television.

'Meet the People' is a filmed report of a tour of Ireland by television's first three presentation announcers. In the extract shown here Kathleen Watkins, Marie O'Sullivan and Nuala Donnelly visit Wexford town.

The television crew are greeted by a large crowd. Ciarán Mac Mathúna introduces the ladies to the Lord Mayor of Wexford Edward Hall. The mayor introduces the ladies to two people from the Wexford Festival Council.

Marie O'Sullivan conducts a brief interview with Dr George Hadden of the Wexford Historical Society. Nuala Donnelly invites the Lord Mayor to say a few words to end the visit. The Mayor thanks them for coming and wishes the new television station well.

As the crowd disperse young boys wave and make faces at the camera. The crew cars and a camera car travel along a country road.
