Footage:Sackville St./O’Connell Street 1920 armoured cars

Scenes during 1920 when a curfew was introduced in Dublin. People could not walk the streets between midnight and five in the morning unless you had a permit. Armoured cars patrolled the roads and streets with searchlights and if without that permit you would be arrested on the spot. Many premises and households were searched and arrests made. Scenes here show Sackville St. as auxilliairies of the R.I.C. drove armoured cars around the crowded streets.
