Thanks for all the feedback and help with identifying the three teenagers pictured here in 1975.

Geraldine Shanahan, Jimmy Kenny and Joe Nolan are pictured here alongside presenter Liam Weldon during the Liberties Festival which took place from the 8th to the 18th May, 1975. The three teenagers participated in RTÉ’s experimental local radio show as part of the festival.

Similar broadcasts took place from different locations throughout Ireland in 1975 and 1976, with Liberties Radio again going on the air in May 1976.

This photograph was taken by Ronan Lee in May 1975.

A special thanks to members of the 'Growing Up in the Liberties' Facebook page.
