Description

The Principal of Mercy Mounthawk Secondary School invited me to work with the Transition Year students on a history project about events here in Kerry at Easter 1916. During the course of six months, we travelled to Banna to interview Tom Hussey, a local farmer, about his first-hand information regarding the arrival of Roger Casement on the beach there. We also visited the County Library, where we met archivist Michael Lynch and Dan Keating (pictured), the IRA veteran. Many questions were put to Dan about his time fighting during the 1916-1922 period. Our journey took us to the City Library and archive in Dublin, to find out what happened at Easter 1916 in Dublin.
