Framed by the stunning surroundings of Killarney, this colourful short amateur film by Desmond Egan features a range of scenes. From a mother and daughter enjoying a picnic at the foot of the mountains to panning shots of the lakes, rivers and springs showcasing all what makes this party of Kerry so unique.

The traditional Irish craft of wool spinning is also on display where we see the various processes required to prepare the fleece.
