  • Short Summary

    Item about the Easter Rising in Dublin in 1916.

  • Description

    Sinn Fein rising - Liberty Hall - part 2. Dublin in the Republic of Ireland / Eire.

    Sinn Fein rising. Pathe's listing says that's what it is; anyway; with 1916 - Dublin written in. So I suppose it is something to do with the Easter Rebellion; though there are no actual scenes of fighting.

    Opening shots not Dublin.

    People cheering someone coming off a boat. Crowd swarms around the arrivals; pan as they walk to right with men still waving caps. A coach flying Union Jacks drives through crowd. (Apparently the idea here is to portray the Irish people as loyal to Britain and happy to be rescued from rebellion ?).

    Shot from high spot panning to left on Sackwille St / O'Connell St in Dublin before the rising; with old buildings; about 6 floors; looking up street at a tower, the Dublin Bread Company building; with pointed top; in distance

    Couple getting off boat, probably Ivor Guest (Lord Lieutenant, Viscount Wimborne) in 1915; People walking toward camera; incl. men in traditional costumes; ermine trimmed robes; etc. Soldiers riding horses through street in Dublin after the rising. CU Man holds up paper Irish War News.
