Watch: Check out the Ford Cortina owned by former Taoiseach Jack Lynch

Former Taoiseach Jack Lynch would have been 100 this month, sharing a centenary celebration with car company Ford's 100 years in Ireland.

50-years-ago, shortly after Lynch had become Taoiseach, Ford presented the Cork hurling legend with a 1967 Ford Cortina.

Patrick O’Sullivan and Fachtna O’Callaghan told Dan Lenihan about the car at the summer festival at Ardfield, West Cork.
