Non-Fiction 1902 2 mins Silent


This lively series of shots of crowds enjoying various events at a university sports day was filmed on the grounds of Queen's College Cork (from 1908, University College Cork). This was next to what is now Fitzgerald Park, host to the 1902 Cork International Exhibition - the bridge-like structure visible in the background is the exhibition's water chute, long since dismantled.
