This is one of nine films in the Mitchell and Kenyon collection relating to this momentous exhibition, a key moment in Cork's early 20th century history. Highlights of the lavish pageantry include Lord Mayor Edward Fitzgerald, whose brainchild the exhibition was, and the pomp of the Royal Irish Constabulary, as well as the first lucky visitors to the newly opened exhibition grounds.
