Description   RTÉ producer Tom McGrath (left) with Terry Wogan and an unidentified woman, at a post-contest reception in Luxembourg on 7-8 April 1973. The venue is unidentified - it may be the Nouveau Théâtre de Luxembourg where the contest itself was held, but this is unconfirmed. Luxembourg won the competition with 'Tu Te Reconnaîtras', its second win in a row. Ireland's entry 'Do I Dream?' was placed joint 10th.

RTÉ Television broadcast the contest live on 7 April. The RTÉ Guide of 6 April 1973 published a three-page preview of the contest while the following week's Guide featured a follow-up report, using stills from this shoot.
