All aboard for a whistle stop tour of the headline events in Ireland, prepare for a heady haze of historic visits, flashes of the industrial boom and famous faces. Highlights include a royal inspection of the 'old contemptibles', a visit from Jackie Kennedy and watching the army blow up the remnants of Nelson's Pillar. From digging out cars in the Big Freeze to Poppets sunning themselves at the docks this magazine is packed with spectacles.
