Description

This meeting almost certainly took place in the summer of 1912 in the great campaign which climaxed with Ulster Day. Carson would have been filmed had he been there and the lack of UVF contingents indicated a pre-January 1913 event. Banners of Unionist Clubs show that this was an all-Tyrone demonstration - South Tyrone, Augher, Clogher, Ballygawley, Castlederg, Killeter and Bready.
