Description   Mary and Christine Gaffney play 'beds' on Whitehall Road in Terenure, Dublin, in January 1968. They are the sisters of photographer Des Gaffney. 'Beds' was played on a series of numbered boxes chalked onto the pavement; the game involved pushing a shoe polish tin around these boxes while hopping on one leg.

This shot was taken for RTÉ Television's religious series 'Outlook'. This was a brief programme, lasting five minutes or so, broadcast just before transmission ended for the night. A number of different priests/clergymen introduced the programme.
