I can't be sure but if I have recognised the photograph correctly, then the photographer which you are looking for is Elinor Wiltshire who's collection may be still showing in the National Photographic Archive. It was featured in an exhibition "If ever you go to Dublin town". I thought as I passed the National Photographic Archive on Saturday it was still showing but I see online that it was supposed to end on the 31st of October. Eitherways if it is the one I think then they will have it in the archive and you could enquire about it directly. If you can figure out the national photographic archive's indexing system you can search by photographer here and it may be online.

Here is the National Photographic Archive exhibition reference.

Some of the photographs hanging had details of the individuals but I can't recall the specifics of that image (again assuming I recognise the image correctly).

Then again, it may be just two young lads playing on the ground

Good luck with your search.

Actually now that I kook more closely at it, the one on the left is definitely an Irish politician - you can tell by the way he's sitting around scratching his bo11ox all day!
