Description   A scene from the 1969 St. Patrick's Day television programme 'Posadh na dTincear' (Tinker's Wedding). This was a traditional music cabaret, arranged around the theme of a traveller's wedding, using music, song and dance. It was performed by Craobh Liam Bulfin of Conradh na Gaeilge and Ceoltoiri Cluain Tarbh. In this shot a young woman with a shawl over her head is playing the tin whistle. She is seated in left profile. Two other 'travellers', a man and a woman are seated beside her, listening. A young boy is just visible in the bottom right corner of the shot standing underneath an old style traveller caravan (barely visible). 'Posadh na dTincear' was RTE's entry for the 1969 Golden Harp Festival. The aim of this festival was to promote international exchanges of folk music and folklore programmes and to encourage interest in traditional cultures among the nations represented through the associated competition.
