Head and shoulders of Irish writer Frank O'Connor, in RTE television Studio 2 in December 1964. He is looking to the left of shot. This still was one of a series taken during the filming of 'The Forgotten Child', O'Connor's reminiscence of a childhood Christmas in Cork. The programme was broadcast on Christmas Day 1964. The producer was James Plunkett. Francis MacManus, then Features Editor of Radio Eireann, wrote an article about O'Connor for the RTV Guide of 18 December 1964.
Frank O'Connor was born Michael O'Donovan. He wrote several books of short stories as well as a biography of Michael Collins 'The Big Fellow' (1937), his two-volume autobiography 'An Only Child' and 'My Father's Son', as well as books of criticism and translations of Irish literature.
