Description

It is likely that this funeral was for the fourteen British secret agents who were assassinated by the IRA. In retaliation 'Black and Tans' opened fire on the crowd at a Gaelic football match at Croke Park, killing 12 people. The event became known as Bloody Sunday. Since this film is dated 1/11/1921 it is not a fresh report on Bloody Sunday (which was on 21 November 1920).
