WATCH: Women Give Their Thoughts On Irish Men In 1967 And Not Much Has Changed

James Fenton

If you’re ever looking for an insight into Irish society back in the day you could do worse than keep up with the Archives page on the RTÉ website. 

Old news and TV footage is released on a regular basis and it’s often as funny as it is educational. 

The clip we’re featuring today is a nice balance of both. It sees the late Bill O’Herlihy take to the streets of Cork for Newsbeat to ask women their opinions on Irish men and it made for some great responses. 

Taken in 1967, you’ll see that not much has changed in terms of lads falling short in the romance stakes and their fondness for a pint. You can check out the full clip by clicking here
