A young lady receiving a gift and a kiss at the "Queen and Exiles" carnival in Glenties in 1971! Over the years there have been many carnivals and festivals ranging from the Tailteann Games to "An Tóstal" etc. but this is one that I never heard of before! Whatever the occasion was the presentation and kiss were a big hit with the locals as there are many smiling faces, not least the recipient, whoever she may be!

Photographers: Denis Tynan 1923 - 2010

Collection: Tynan Photographic Collection

Date: 1971

    Amused to find out that the beard style yer man has is also known as a Donegal! en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shenandoah_(beard) I wonder what happens to "perpetual"trophies when forever and ever comes to an end.

    The Compere seems to be an Olympian. Part of 1968 contingent? Hardly Brendan O'Reilly?

    [https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]] It's not an Olympic logo. It shows more clearly in the other photos from the event, but the crest on his blazer and tie is more like an upside down Olympic sign - 2 up, 3 down. Above on the blazer patch is a shield with a cross crosslet and 5 little somethings. The initials S.M.C.P.E. are below. What does it mean? I have no idea. I also have no idea why anyone would ever think that a neck beard like that would ever be a good idea.

    Any chance S.M.C.P.E. is St. Msomething's College Physical Education?

    In NPA TYN733 you can see that blazer lad's tie has the same flipped olympic rings, but the initials SAO or SAC instead of SMCPE.
