This remarkable footage highlights the events that happened in Dublin during the Civil War from June 28th to July 5th. It depicts the devastating use of artillery by the rebels against the Four Courts and the shootings and battles around O’Connell Street, Abbey Street and Portobello Bridge.

Free state soldiers are seen handing out supplies to civilians at Hickey & Co on Talbot Street, rebels fire from street corners and buildings are firebombed on O’Connell Street. The Red Cross drive through the city as smoke and flames billow out of buildings around them.
