What would I do without Irish Central feeding me material? From their February 5th digest, British Pathe has put literally thousands of hours of newsreel footage on their website, which you can watch for free!
There's footage of Michael Collins (he does look like a big fella in the still, doesn't he?), Sinn Feiners in "concentration camps" in 1920 (looking remarkably like German POW camps in the '40s), President and Mrs. Wilson, JFK in Ireland- too much to describe here. Link above.
