Intertitle: EASTER TIME IN DUBLIN. All roads leading in and out of the city were barricaded and all vehicles closely examined".
Tough security measures are brought into play to prevent trouble over the anniversary of the Easter uprising.
On a country road, two soldiers stop a chauffeur driven car and ask the occupants to get out. A man and a woman get out and stand at the edge of the road, the soldiers make a thorough examination of the car. The chauffeur chats to the soldiers and the couple - everyone seems very amiable, no animosity. The couple get back inside the car.
