Description   Irish gardener John Fanning (centre, holding microphone) interviews students in the grounds of An Grianán in Termonfeckin, County Louth, for the RTÉ Radio series 'The Irish Gardener' in June/July 1970. His fellow presenter/gardener Desmond (Des) Kenny can be seen standing first right. The ICA (Irish Countrywomen's Association) ran courses from this location and it was also the site of a Horticultural College founded in 1968.

'The Irish Gardener', broadcast two programmes from here on 23 and 27 July 1970, featuring a quiz between pupils from Termonfeckin Horticultural College and the Botanc Gardens in Glasnevin, Dublin. Several stills from this shoot accompanied an RTÉ Guide preview published on 17 July 1970.
