    wreath laid by Mrs Margaret Pearse, mother of Patrick and William.

    Rory O\'Connor with Countess Markievicz (and I think I know the girl with them, I just can\'t recall who she is). Count Plunkett with the white beard towards the end.

    Maybe the girl is Muriel MacSwiney, Terence MacSwiney\'s widow.
