‘Disloyalty in Dublin’ March 1914

Fianna CinemaScenes at a Sackville Street Picture House

“A Dublin message says the exhibition of the British Army film in a Sackville Street picture house last night, was accompanied by scenes of disorder.

A party of fifteen youths connected with the Irish National Boy Scouts [Na Fianna] during the display, cheered for the Germans and the Boers, made insulting remarks about English Soldiers, and sang “ A Nation Once Again”.

Some of the audience raised counter-cheers for the Army. Eventually the disturbers were removed by police constables.” – The Newcastle Daily Journal, Friday March 6th 1914
