Description   The former Roman Catholic Bishop of Kerry and Galway Eamonn Casey, on 26 April 1971. This shot was taken for use in RTÉ Television's religious affairs programme 'Encounter'. 'Encounter' was a live weekly programme featuring filmed reports, which examined the role of Christianity in contemporary life.

Eamonn Casey was ordained a priest in 1951. He served as Bishop of Kerry from 1969-76 and Bishop of Galway from 1976-92; he resigned following revelations that he had fathered a son with American Annie Murphy while Bishop of Kerry. He went to Ecuador following this scandal where he worked in a pastoral capacity.
