The opening sequence of the first feature-length film to deal with the Irish War of Independence. It was a silent film called “Irish Destiny”, made in 1925-26. The man on the motorbike is actor Paddy Dunne Cullinan, playing an IRA volunteer.
The scene re- enacts a republican messenger on his way to a hotel to warn Michael Collins of an impending raid from the auxiliaries.
The GPO is still not rebuilt nearly a decade after the Easter Rising.
The Movie is available on DVD with fully restored picture and new musical soundtrack. Well worth a look.
