1. On its own site in the section 'Ireland: Revolutionary Period, 1916-1924'. Footage is organised by topics.

2. British Pathé's 1916 Easter Rising footage can also be found on Youtube using the search query 'Easter+Rising+1916' or click here

A selection of their footage has also been compiled into a showreel (05:30)
