O’Donovan Rossa’s Funeral in August 1915

Tomorrow marks the Centenary of the funeral of Fenian Jeremiah O’Donovan Rossa, whose funeral was one of the biggest of its age. Republicans traveled to Dublin to follow the cortege from City Hall to Glasnevin Cemetery. The event attracted an Achill contingent too.

Here is a short film courtesy of independent filmmaker Marcus Howard that fusses beautifully  the original event with a present day re-enactment.
