Na Fianna Eireann at the Bachelor's Walk funeral in 1914

Film still of Na Fianna Eireann marching as part of the funeral procession for the three victims of the Bachelor’s Walk massacre. This massacre occurred a number of days before on 26th July 1914 following the successful Howth gunrunning earlier in the day.

The funeral was held on 29th July 1914 and was one of the first (if not the first) public occasions that the Irish Volunteers, Na Fianna Eireann and Cumann na mBan marched side by side.
