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!
