Episode Twelve - Ivy Day in the Committee Room is Joyce's story on the state of politics in Ireland. On the anniversary of the death of Charles Stewart Parnell, canvassers in a Dublin by-election take shelter from the rain inside a committee room. Between many comings and goings they discuss politics, children, and how to open a bottle when you don't have a corkscrew. Their answers to those questions reveal more about society than they realise.
