This is how they used to do it. A dig through the RTE archives has unearthed this series of TV and radio clips from the station’s coverage of past general elections. There’s some fascinating bits and pieces, including behind-the-scenes coverage from 1982, a report from a mass at the Pro-Cathedral for incoming deputies in 1981 and, from the same year and perhaps best of all, Vincent Browne rocking a fine set of mutton chops AND admitting to Brian Farrell that he was wrong.
