A State Ceremonial event will take place at Glasnevin Cemetery, Dublin on 3rd August 2016 to mark the centenary of Roger Casement's execution.

Beidh Ócáid Searmanais Stáit ar siúl ag Reilig Ghlas Naíon, Baile Átha Cliath an 3 Lúnasa 2016 chun comóradh céad bliain bhás Ruairí Mhic Easmainn a cheiliúradh.

Due to the limited space at the graveside, unfortunately the event is not open to the public.

Roger Casement was despatched to Germany on account of his British consular experience to raise an Irish Brigade from Irish prisoners of war. He was captured by the RIC on Banna Strand, County Kerry in April 1916 where he had been landed by a German U–Boat. Casement was imprisoned in Pentonville Gaol, London, and was subsequently tried and sentenced to death on charges of High Treason.

He was hanged on 3rd August 1916, the only leader of the Rising to be executed outside of Ireland.

In 1965, his body was returned to Ireland
and Casement was finally laid to rest in Glasnevin Cemetery.

The ceremony will include a short narrative on Casement as well as a reading from the original trial documents.

A solemn wreath-laying will take place, followed by a minute of silent reflection and a piper’s lament. The Last Post will be sounded before the National Flag is raised to full mast. The Reveille will then be sounded and the National Anthem played.

I ngeall ar an spás teoranta ag an uaigh, ar an drochuair níl an t-imeacht seo ar oscailt don phobal.

Cuireadh Ruairí Mac Easmainn chun na Gearmáine de bharr a thaithí ar chonsalacht na Breataine chun Briogáid Éireannach a bhailiú as príosúnaigh chogaidh Éireannacha. Ghabh Constáblacht Ríoga na hÉireann Sir Ruairí Mac Easmainn ar Thrá na Beannaí, in Aibreán 1916 áit ar tháinig sé i dtír i bhfomhuireán Gearmánach. Cuireadh Mac Easmainn sa phríosún i bPríosún Pentonville, Londain, agus cuireadh ar a thriall é agus cuireadh chun báis é as cionta Ardtréasa.

Crochadh é an 3 Lúnasa 1916, agus is é t-aon cheannaire ón Éirí Amach a cuireadh chun báis taobh amuigh d’Éirinn.

I 1965, tugadh a chorp ar ais go hÉirinn
agus cuireadh Mac Easmainn faoi dheireadh thiar thall i Reilig Ghlas Naíon.

Inseofar scéal gairid ar Mhac Easmainn sa searmanas agus beidh léamh ann ó dhoiciméid bhunaidh na trialach.

Beidh searmanas sollúnta fleascleagain ann agus ina dhiaidh sin beidh nóiméad ciúin machnaimh agus caoineadh píobaire. Séidfear an Ghairm Dheiridh sula n-ardófar an Bhratach Náisiúnta ar lánchrann. Séidfear an Reveille agus seinnfear Amhrán na bhFiann ansin.
