Roger David Casement

Roger David Casement
1864-1916
Irish Nationalist and Martyr.
Born in Sandycove near Dublin

“Despite international fame and knighthood conferred for humanitarian campaigns, despite pleadings by influential Englishmen, and despite his effort to prevent the underprepared 1916 Easter Rising, Casement was convicted and executed for treason.”

“It is a cruel thing to die with all men misunderstanding.”  Last letter to his sister (1916).
