A witch who tries to put a spell on Dublin pedestrians holds another secret.

Grafton Street shoppers may have been startled by a pouncing witch, but may have been even more surprised if they had known who was behind the Halloween disguise. RTÉ presenter Mike Murphy takes a trip down Grafton Street dressed as a witch in a sketch for ‘The Likes of Mike’.

This film was broadcast as part of a sketch on 'The Likes of Mike' on 26 October 1972.

The film shown here is mute.

'The Likes of Mike' was a variety show hosted by Mike Murphy.
