Cameraman asks multiple people the simple question "Would you die for Ireland?" and gauges the responses.
An interesting insight into the mind of the average person on the street. Quite your expected Oirish begrudgery from some more older people. But also a good lot of young lads who immediately say "Yes", without hesitation or prompt. Of course the question isn't given with context, so it'd mean different things to different people, but people's interpretations of the question are equally as interesing as their answers to me. Some obviously interpret is as "die for the current government", whereas others obviously see it as "die for the nation".
Also interesting to note Bertie Ahern at 4:00 mealy-mouthing in his answer, an Irish Taoiseach who wouldn't even unreservedly say he'd be willing to pay the ultimate sacrifice for his country is no leader.
