One of this week’s photographs from April 1982 features the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland Mr Jim Prior at the Balmoral Show in May 1982.

Another photograph from May 1982 is eight-year-old Barbara Draffin from Bishopscourt Farm, Dromore, Co Down, who defeated 37 boys and girls to win the Naomi Pepper Cup for solo singing at the Carrickfergus Music Festival that month.

And we also have an old photograph showing vintage and veteran vehicles fans at the annual Pinta Parade from Lisburn in May 1982. Mr J Wilton of Belfast is shown setting off in his 1924 Morris Cowley.

All photographs are courtesy of the News Letter and Farming Life archives.
