Description   The Blackwater Mummers perform a Morris dance on the street, during the Enniscorthy Fleadh Ceoil in County Wexford in May 1967. The term 'mummers' dates from medieval times, and is used to refer to different kinds of street performers, some of whom may perform seasonal folk plays either on the street or in houses and pubs.

RTÉ Television broadcast a programme about the Enniscorthy Fleadh Ceoil, 'In the Merry Month of May', on 4 October 1967. It concentrated mainly on the visitors attending this festival of traditional Irish music. A brief article on the programme was published in the RTÉ Guide of 29 September 1967. 'In the Merry Month of May' was RTÉ's entry for the 1967 Golden Harp competition.
