Evidence from the trial of Roger Casement that has never been seen in public is to be displayed at Kerry County Museum.
Scotland Yard has given a loan of some of the items that were used in evidence against Casement at his trial for treason in London in 1916. Casement landed on Banna Strand on Good Friday 1916 with arms from Germany to aid the Rising.
He was later captured, tried for treason and hanged by the British.
The President will officially open the Casement exhibition at Kerry County Museum in Tralee on April 21st.
Curator Helen O’Carroll says they are very grateful to Scotland Yard, the London Metropolitan Police and the Irish Embassy in London for their help.
She describes the significance of the artifacts that’ll be exhibited.
