A scene from RTÉ Television's satirical series 'Ballymagash', during filming in Studio 2 in February 1983. From left to right; Paul Murphy, Patrick Dawson, Pat Daly and Frank Kelly. The four are gathered around a table, at a meeting of Ballymagash district council. They are holding pints of stout. A blackboard on the right of shot has the words 'Wanted 3.52 minute mile chairman' written on it.
'Ballymagash' was based on the earlier satirical programme 'Hall's Pictorial Weekly' which featured the fictional village of Ballymagash. The first episode of 'Ballymagash' was broadcast on 10 January 1983; the series was produced by John Keogh and Peter McEvoy and ran for 10 episodes. An article by John Walsh on the programme was published in the RTÉ Guide of 7 January 1983.
