Description   Ballroom dancers June Wall and Tommy Shaughnessy, the winners of the Amateur Open and Closed Old-Time Championship at the 14th Annual Willwood Silvermints Ballroom Dancing Championships, pose with their trophies in Dublin's Shelbourne Hotel on 7 November 1976. The couple are in full ballroom costume. Jerry Kearney, Managing Director of the Willwood group of companies, is in the centre.

This competition was broadcast live and in colour on RTÉ Television. The RTÉ Guide previewed the contest on 5 November 1976 and published a brief follow-up article on 12 November 1976; this still accompanied the latter.
