A girl can never have too many admirers!

This is American model Linda Ward (later O'Reilly) posing, while two local boys give her outfit the once over…


We discovered more about our elegant American model, Linda Ward, who married Brendan O’Reilly, presenter of Sports Stadium on RTÉ Television, and swapped New York for Dublin’s modelling scene. Fantastically well done to derangedlemur for locating this photo at Winetavern Street, Dublin, given that the whole right hand streetscape is completely different today!


Photographer: Colman Doyle


Date: Between January 1960 and 1966
