For this week's photograph we are going back to 1969 and a series called 'Hoot'nanny'

Can anyone help us with the name of this group?

'Hoot'nanny' was a country music and comedy series that began broadcasting on 3 October 1969. The 'RTÉ Guide' listed the show as, "A new country series spliced with comedy. The main spot alternates from week to week between Dermot O'Brien and his Clubmen and Sean Dunphy and The Hoed-owners."

Country music appears to have been very popular in the early years of Irish television with shows like 'Jamboree' and 'Hoedown'. 'Hoot'nanny' was presented by Shay Healy with regular appearances from Hal Roach.
