Can you help to identify this man with the former Fianna Fail Minister for Local Government Kevin Boland (1917 - 2001)?

Former Fianna Fail Minister for Local Government Kevin Boland, cuts the ribbon at the opening of St. Michael's Estate, Inchicore, Dublin in February 1970. We are hoping to identify the man holding a small silver dish who is standing next to the Minister.

Kevin Boland was elected as a TD for Dublin South in 1957. He served as Minister for Defence (1957) Minister for Social Welfare (1961-6) and Minister for Local Government (1966-70). He resigned from government during the Arms Trial. Boland founded his own party Aontacht Éireann but it failed to win electoral support.
