Caption   'Táin Bó Cúailgne' (1970)
Description   A close-up of a masked actor in a scene from an RTÉ Television version of 'Táin Bó Cúailgne', during location filming in County Wicklow in 1970. 'Táin Bó Cúailgne' (also known as 'The Cattle Raid of Cooley' or 'The Brown Bull of Cooley') is an epic of early Irish literature/mythology. This programme was intended as an entry in the Golden Harp Festival competition, but the project was abandoned before completion. Rushes and some film footage survive.

The Golden Harp Festival aimed 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. It was organised under the auspices of the EBU (European Broadcasting Union).
