Description   A view of the train station in Celbridge, County Kildare, during location filming of a scene from the Telefís Éireann (RTÉ Television) play 'A Boy at the Train', photographed in early 1966. A vintage car is parked on the right of shot, while Valentine Hickey as Donal O'Connor can be seen tearing down a 'Rally Round the Flag' poster. 'A Boy at the Train' was the second of four specially commissioned plays set in the years leading up to Easter 1916, made to mark the 50th anniversary of the Rising. All four were written by Bryan MacMahon and were aimed at young people - children featured in prominent roles.

'A Boy at the Train' was broadcast on 10 April 1966. The RTV (RTÉ) Guide published an article by Bryan MacMahon on his memories of 1916, and his experience of writing some of the scripts for RTÉ Television and Radio that commemorated it, on 8 April 1966. A Guide article previewing all four plays was published on 1 April 1966.
