Fascinating piece of footage here (thanks to those who forwarded it) which has outakes from a 1916 Commemoration recorded in 1931 in Dublin. Peadar O’Donnell addresses the crowd.

This is great. I’ve read loads of accounts of these commemorations but I’d never actually seen footage of O’Donnell speaking in that era. He was at the height of his influence in many ways that year.

And a very commanding speaker too.
