Footage: 1922 Synge Street C.B.S. school play

It’s a pity there’s no sound for this one as it shows a play put on by Synge Street Christian brothers and Francis street schools from 1922. The play was “The Eagle of the North” and was based on the life of Red Hugh O’Donnell. It  ran for a full week in April of 1922 and was performed at the C.Y.M. hall on Harrington Street. Synge Street had performed the pageant two years previously also.
