The masses gather to hear Eamon De Valera on the streets of Tralee.

THIS man could certainly draw a crowd!

Long before Nathan Carter was packing Denny Street for the festival, there was another guy who had the magnetism to attract thousands of people to the streets of Tralee.

British Movietone, the digital archive service, has just uploaded a video of Eamon De Valera reviewing units of the army, LSF, L.D.F, and nursing services in Tralee.

It doesn’t give a year and there is no sound, but the size of the crowds on the streets is amazing. He then addresses the masses from the steps of the Ashe Memorial Hall.

Can anyone shed a light on even the decade here?

Watch the video below…
