Roger Casement’s landing at Banna Strand on Good Friday 1916 was a pivotal event in the lead up to the rebellion that broke out in Dublin a few days later.

Our exhibition guides you through Casement’s fascinating life journey: from crown servant and celebrated international humanitarian to doomed revolutionary. We explore the repercussions of his brief sojourn in Kerry and its impact on local people, how the failure of his gun running mission affected The Rising, and the way his trial for High Treason was prosecuted in London. Tracing this remarkable man’s legacy, the exhibition provides a unique opportunity to view objects that have never been displayed before.
