Cockburn, Claud (1904 - 1981)
Half-length portrait of radical British journalist Claud Cockburn, outside his home in Youghal, County Cork on 16 September 1974. He is seated on a bench and is looking to camera. He is wearing a hat and glasses. Cockburn was a communist sympathiser and fought against Franco in the Spanish Civil War.
This still was taken to publicise Cockburn's appearance on RTE Television's 'Personal Account'. The programme was broadcast on 25 October 1974. A still from this shoot was used to illustrate a brief RTE Guide article on Cockburn, published on 18 October 1974.
