    Waterford elections. Waterford in Ireland.

    Elections. Irish election in the town of Waterford; c. 1910s ? Irish Nationalism. Crowd in street; with several children in FG looking at camera; stone building in BG. Next; an open coach stopped in the crowd; in it 2 men wearing bowler hats and one woman. Cool shot of a crowd; working class; including many women; cheering and waving flags (with stripes) as a man wearing an Army uniform steps in front of them; back to camera. He is joined by candidate (? -one of the men sitting in coach earlier). He is carrying his hat.

    CU these 2 men; with crowd swarming about them; pushing in a friendly way. Finally; DS crowd in street; still very enthusiastic; on a slightly raised porch are a several people - lots of men in suits - political leaders? Some are squeezing down into the crowd. Some men waving or tossing their caps. People waving; excitement; celebration. (Note written on the film mentions John Redmond; a politician of the Irish Nationalist Party; and an unidentified 'Sinn Fein Candidate'.

    These 2 parties; while both for Home Rule; had different ideas about achieving it. Not certain who won election. It's not Redmond in these shots; he would be 60 at this time; though it could be some others associated with him. Or maybe they are Sinn Fein. Ireland; Politics. More of this on ON 311B & ON 403A.

Animals are often the forgotten army of World War I. They displayed unwavering courage even when exposed to extreme conditions. British Pathé pay tribute to these forgotten warriors.

British Pathe captured many extraordinary events on film over its 80 year history but sometimes the cameras were switched on when tragedy struck.
