A view of the start of the RTÉ Radio 2 Dublin City Marathon, on 29 October 1984. At least a hundred male runners are passing under a banner which reads 'Radio 2 Dublin City Marathon Seiko Timing'. This shot was taken on Harcourt Street.
RTÉ Television broadcast highlights from the 1984 marathon on 29 October. RTÉ Radio 2 (now 2fm) broadcast live throughout the marathon from a mobile studio in Raheny.
