Intertitle: "Lord Mayor's Hunger Strike. Exclusive Pathe picture of Alderman T. MacSwiney of Cork".
C/U of the Mayor, a man in his thirties, sitting at a desk in a dark room - possibly a prison cell. He stares intently at the camera before turning to some papers on his desk with the word 'Eire' written on. C/U of the Mayor talking and smiling.
Note: These could be some of the last images of Irish Nationalist Tomas MacSwiney before his death in October of this year - his funeral is seen in G 717 - TERENCE MACSWINEY LAID TO REST and G 716 in DEATH OF THE LORD MAYOR OF CORK.
Note: Some old records spell the name as 'McSwiney' or 'MacSwinney', the correct spelling - according to historical texts - is 'MacSwiney' . Please also note that Tomas is also referred to as Terence.
