This British Pathe video shows Michael Collins addressing a large gathering about the Anglo-Irish Treaty before it gets broken up by several men firing guns in the crowd, however, Collins refused to be frightened by the opponents’ tactics.
Collins can be seen on a platform above the crowd as they wave hats and handkerchiefs at him before he gives an impassioned speech. Afterwards, the crowd can be seen surging backwards as shots are fired and some fights break out. A man firing a gun can be seen at the end of the video.
