    C/U of the President chatting with the Captain on the bridge of a ship. L/S of a biplane swooping over a steam ship coming into harbour towards the camera. High angled shot of Cosgrave with a woman and a man getting into a car, a crowd surrounds them (including two policemen), they wave their hats and cheer. L/S of the President's car and mounted policemen coming down a crowd lined street past a large monument - looks like Dublin. C/U of Cosgrave and the woman (his wife?) listening as a man reads from a scroll.

    C/U of men inside the driver's cabin of a steam engine. Low angled shot of the train crossing a viaduct. Panning shot of a group of men - including Cosgrave? - posing for a photograph in front of the train.

    Note: the shots of the train and the viaduct are the same or similar to shots seen in MALLOW VIADUCT, also in G 1046. AH 2000.

    Note: some old records and paperwork spell the president's name Cosgrove - the correct spelling is Cosgrave. AH 2000.
