Farmer, Dónall (1937 - 2018)
Joan O'Hara as Stella and Donall Farmer as Fr Barry, in a scene from the RTÉ Television play 'Deeply Regretted By', during filming in Studio 1 in October 1978. O'Hara's back is to camera - she is kneeling. Written by Maeve Binchy, this play was based on a journalistic piece she did for 'The Irish Times' about a death in London's Irish community.
'Deeply Regretted By' was first broadcast on 28 December 1978, as part of RTE Television's 'Thursday Play Date' series, with Louis Lentin producing. It won a prize at the Prague Television Festival and two Jacob's awards for Maeve Binchy and Donall Farmer. This still was one of two from this shoot used to illustrate a very brief article about the play published in the RTÉ Guide of 22 December 1978.
