The search is on for Ireland's cleverest dog.

In 1979 RTÉ News reported on the search for Ireland’s cleverest pets.  One competition entrant was Tina the dog from Clonskeagh in Dublin.

This RTÉ News report by Deirdre Purcell features a Clonskeagh man and his dog 'Tina', who performs various tricks. Tina is a well disciplined dog and is pictured here holding liver in her mouth without eating it. She also knows the difference between the Evening Herald and the Evening Press. Tina is described as "an Irish catholic dog" and prays on command.

An RTÉ News report broadcast on 30 March 1979. The reporter is Deirdre Purcell.
