The aftermath of the Dublin Easter Rising, Ireland, 1916.

O'Connell Street before the rising (black segments block out part of the film). Members of the Irish Volunteers in civilian clothes with webbing pouches and rifles drill and march past in the open. More of the Irish Volunteers in their paramilitary uniform (introduced in August 1914) marching off in a parade. Two columns of Irish Volunteers, filmed from a high window, marching through a crowded Dublin square in civilian clothes. The damage done to Liberty Hall, the head office of the Irish TGWU and headquarters of the rising. O'Connell Bridge in the aftermath, with damage to a number of buildings. British soldiers halt outside the Customs House. Other soldiers unload an ammunition wagon outside Liberty Hall. The interior of a hospital, probably Dublin Castle, showing three wounded men in beds - all British soldiers (?). Australian and New Zealander soldiers march through the crowded streets. Three British soldiers set up a Vickers machine gun by a sandbagged barricade. Another barricade made of overturned cars. A pan out from the O'Connell monument to show the damage done to the Post Office. An improvised armoured car made from railway boilers bolted onto a Guinness lorry. A further pan over Liberty Hall and other buildings in Liffey Street - masonry is pulled away from burnt out buildings for safety. The film ends with a posed shot of Thomas Clark with Miss O'Donovan Rossa. This shot is from a British Pathé newsreel and the daughter is identified as Eileen, shown with Clarke at her father's funeral on 1 August 1915.
