Jim Tunney is elected in Dublin North West and promises the nation and his mother that he and the Fianna Fáil party will do something about rates.

This clip from the RTÉ General Election 1969 results programme shows how viewers were kept up to date on incoming results by the teleprinter. The studio discussion is interrupted as the programme goes live to the Bolton Street count centre where Jim Tunney is elected for Dublin North West.

The studio panel features Garret Fitzgerald a future Taoiseach (Prime Minister), Brendan Halligan and Ted Nealon.
