    A ceremony to remember those who died in the insurrection in 1916.

  • Description

    Item title reads: "Ceremony to remember those who died in the insurrection in 1916."

    Ireland

    A dignitary inspects troops. There are some slow motion shots. The soldiers parade, and some hold guns. There are clergy, and civilians with umbrellas. The crowd stand around, while there is a blessing by a member of the clergy. There is a small square of ground with some small floral bouquets. The ground is blessed with holy water and the group listen to prayers with their heads bowed in the rain. The soldiers shoulder arms, a gun salute is fired twice, and soldiers with horns play some notes, probably the Last Post? Irish politicians are in the crowd. M/S flowers at site.
