Subject

Roger Casement

Description

49 years after his execution in Pentonville Prison in England, the body of Roger Casement was returned to Ireland for burial in the Republican plot in Glasnevin Cemetery. Here we see the funeral cortege as his body is brought to lie in state in Dublin before the burial on 1st March. Casement had wanted to be buried at Murlough Bay near Ballycastle but the British government refused. A memorial service takes place at the edge of the Bay every year.
