Footage: Trinity College 1917/1918 The Irish Convention

Scenes of delegates arriving for the Irish Convention which met numerous times in 1917 and 1918 to discuss once again and explore the possibility of self government. During this time it was chaired by Sir Horace Plunkett(who I think can be seen in the footage) and was held in the Regent House of Trinity College. Plunkett was a supporter of Home Rule. Shots of a bustling College Green area, with trams, cars, horse drawn carriages etc.
