Summary

A visit to the Denis Tynan collection today and to representatives of the beautiful fishing town of Killybegs. The benefits of having a marching band in a town are many and varied, keeping young people active, developing an appreciation of music, giving essential life skills etc. This band must have been a colourful group and certainly seem happy in their role!..Niall McAuley ( /photos/gnmcauley/ ) clarifies that, while from Killybegs, this image was taken in Falcarragh ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Falcarragh ) - at the Easter parade there. Seemingly Falcarragh still hosts visiting bands and musicians at their annual summer festival. Whether any still make the 100km journey from Killybegs is perhaps a question best answered locally (as is where more specifically "by the crossroads" this image was captured)........Photographers: Denis Tynan 1923 - 2010..Collection: Tynan Photographic Collection ( http://catalogue.nli.ie/Collection/vtls000314725 ) ..Date: Catalogue date 1971 (Easter was in April in 1971)..NLI Ref: NPA TYN630 ( http://catalogue.nli.ie/Record/vtls000736347 ) ..You can also view this image, and many thousands of others, on the NLI’s catalogue at catalogue.nli.ie ( http://catalogue.nli.ie )
