Description   American singer/songwriter John Denver in Killarney, County Kerry in July 1986. Marty Whelan interviewed John Denver there for the RTÉ Television series 'Video File'. Denver had visited Killarney after his appearance at the Siamsa Cois Laoi festival in Cork that summer. Denver is wearing a 'Les Miserables' sweatshirt.

'Video File' was produced by Ian McGarry and featured a different artist being interviewed by Marty Whelan each week - some of their videos were also played. This special was broadcast by RTÉ 1 on New Year's Eve 1986. The RTÉ Guide of 19 December 1986 published an article about John Denver. Denver is best known for his songs 'Take Me Home, Country Roads' and 'Annie's Song'. He died in a plane crash in 1997.
