Description   Future Taoiseach Enda Kenny of Fine Gael (in blue tracksuit) shakes hands with Noel Gilmore, Chief Executive of the NDC (National Dairy Council), as RTÉ broadcaster Jimmy Magee looks on, during the prizegiving ceremony on RTÉ Television's 'The Superstars' athletics competition in Newpark Comprehensive School, Blackrock, County Dublin, in March 1979. His teammates sitting on the left are, from left to right, Limerick hurler Pat Hartigan, RTÉ broadcaster Kathy Parke, rugby player Tom Grace and broadcaster Jim Sherwin. The first episode in the 1979 series was broadcast on 2 March that year. The RTÉ Guide published an article about that year's competition on 6 April 1979.

This competition selected an Irish representative to compete in the World Superstars contest. Superstars involves sportspeople from different disciplines competing against one another in a variety of events. The 1979 Irish contest featured ten Irish sportsmen, five sportswomen, five politicians and five personalities.
