• Short Summary

    Men of the Irish Republican Army march in Dublin in memory of their fallen comrades.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "Ireland. Easter Week In Dublin. 5 Battalions of the Irish Republican Army, march through City to pay tribute to their comrades, who fell in the 1916 Easter Rising."

    Dublin, Eire, Southern Ireland, Republic of Ireland.

    Members of the IRA (some carrying flags - but most wearing civvies) march in parade down crowd lined street. Two men carry wreath. Young women in uniform (Irish version of Girl Guides possibly) and boys in uniform (possibly boy scouts) follow in the procession. One group of men carry a banner with a message in Irish - it bears the initials FF which may stand for Fianna Fail. Man marches carrying lower Irish tricolour flag. Following him are men carrying a banner which reads "1916 Club Irish Republican Soldiers Federation".

    Pan across ranks of men lined up (possibly as Glasnaven (sp?) Cemetery).

    More shots of the parade. Some men carry flags lowered in memory of comrades who fell in 1916.

    (Sound track runs out)

    Building on fire. (not clear but this is probably from 1916 - the burning of the Four Courts District). (For some reason there is a repeat of some of the earlier shots of the march).

    (According to the commentary many of the men in the parade had just been released from prison where they had been serving sentences as political prisoners for their actions in the IRA - probably during the civil war).
