'Donncha's Travelling Roadshow' was a series presented by Donncha Ó Dúlaing highlighting the people, music and traditions of rural Ireland. This edition of the show was first broadcast on 29 March 1980; it focused particularly on the prevalence of country music bands and singers in Castleblayney.

Thanks for your help identifying the actor in last week's photograph as Dermod Lynskey.
