    Fantastic footage. I live near where this was filmed and pass it nearly every day. My grandfather was in the army at the time of this film but was based in a different town. BTW, it was filmed at Clones, Co Monaghan. Google 'Clones Affray 1922' to get some more background on actvity around Clones at the time.
