Ó Súilleabháin, Eoin (1935 - 1989)
Irish actor Eoin Ó Súilleabháin as Moloney, in a publicity still for the RTÉ Television play 'Moloney', during filming in Studio 1 in 1972. He is looking out from behind prison bars in this shot.
Set in 1680 in Drogheda Jail, 'Moloney' deals with the dilemma of a drunkard who must betray Oliver Plunkett, Archbishop of Armagh, or face torture. It was written by Seán Ó Tuama and won an Oireachtas prize. This still was one of three from this shoot used to illustrate an RTÉ Guide article about the play, published on 15 December 1972.
