Martial law was imposed during the rising and these clips show troops occupying central Dublin. Of particular interest are: Michael O'Rahilly's car in Henry Street ('The O'Rahilly', a prominent Volunteer, was killed in the last battle in Moore Street); close shots of the GPO (including the interior where Pearse and Connolly directed the rebellion); and the ruined Metropole Hotel adjacent to it. Sackville Street was still the official name for O'Connell Street. The rising lasted for several days before the leaders surrendered to British forces. A total of fifteen of the nationalist leaders were subsequently executed, and some 3,000 were interned.
