Mr Churchill, leaving Grand Central Hotel for Celtic Park meeting

Description:

Photographic negative showing 'Mr Churchill, leaving Grand Central Hotel for Celtic Park meeting.' The meeting, organised by the Ulster Liberal Association, (a group of Liberal party members who supported the Home Rule Bill) was originally scheduled for the Ulster Hall. The event had to be re-scheduled for Celtic Park on the Falls Road after some Unionists threatened to use force in order to prevent it being held at this city centre venue. Churchill, who spoke in favour of Home Rule, was mobbed by angry Unionists at the port of Belfast on his departure from the city.
