Description   RTE producer Andy Gallagher (left) and Seán Ó Mórdha (right), RTE producer and documentary film-maker. They are attending the presentation of prizes for the Golden Harp Festival at the Shelbourne Hotel, Dublin in 1967. The aim of the festival was to promote international exchanges of folk music and folklore programmes and to encourage interest in traditional cultures among the nations represented through the associated competition. It was organised under the auspices of the European Broadcasting Union - twenty European countries took part in 1967, the second year of the festival.

Both men are looking straight to camera; Ó Mórdha is holding a wine glass. Others may be seen behind them including a right profile shot of Ciarán Mac Mathúna who was the Irish jury member for the competition. Ó Mórdha is the producer of the Emmy award winning documentary on James Joyce 'Is there one who understands me?' (1982) and the series 'Seven Ages' (2000). He also worked as an editor on the current affairs programme '7 Days' and a producer on the Irish language current affairs programme 'Feach'.
