  • Short Summary

    Violence breaks out during a speech by Michael Collins.

  • Description

    Item title reads: "Our Cameraman was there! Revolver shots and free fights at Mr Michael Collins' Free State Meeting in heart of republican area."

    Cork, Eire, Southern Ireland, Republic of Ireland.

    This appears to be a repeat of the material in G 859 - GREAT CORK TREATY. We see disturbance in crowd and a man attempting to pull out a gun. Crowd surges towards the man. High angle shots of crowds fighting. People are seen running away and some shots are fired. One man stands with legs akimbo smoking a pipe whilst shots are fired around him.
