Intertitle: "IRISH MAYOR SHOT. Alderman Thomas Mac Curtain, Lord Mayor of Cork, buried with full Sinn Fein Honours".
Long shot of a crowd lined street, the funeral procession is lead by a band of pipers. Mac Curtain's ( MacCurtain ) coffin is carried on a splendid horse drawn carriage covered in flowers. M/S of the horse drawn hearse. M/S of the mourners marching behind the hearse. Various shots of the crowds in the streets - men, women and children shelter from the rain. There is a feeling of depression and poverty - there a few umbrellas, many of the women wear old fashioned scarves, they look into the camera with serious expressions. A shadow of a man can be seen standing in the back of a truck in the middle of the crowd, the helmets of the Garda can be seen over the heads of the people.
