The following video from British Pathé shows an Irish trade delegation posing on the tarmac at Rinneana, Co. Clare, (later to become Shannon Airport).

The video shows Finance Minister Sean O’Kelly, Sean Lemass, Sean McEntee and other government officials descending from the aircraft and posing for camera on the tarmac of Shannon airport with their service advisers General McKellar and Colonel Mulcahy.

Seam Lemass became Minister for Supplies one year earlier in 1939 following the outbreak of World War II (known in Ireland as The Emergency).
