Bourke, Ciarán (1935 - 1988)
Half-length portrait shot of Ciarán Bourke (with beard), musician with the traditional Irish music group The Dubliners, playing the guitar in September 1967. He is in profile looking to the left of shot. A microphone is in the foreground and part of 'no smoking' sign visible in the background.
This photo was taken during a performance for 'Ballads of a Saturday', a fiteen minute programme broadcast on Saturday mornings on Radio Eireann, introduced by the American folk singer Dick Cameron. The Dubliners were recorded in a temporary Radio Eireann studio located in O'Connell Hall, opposite the Gresham Hotel on Dublin's O'Connell Street.
