“It is Casement, and you keep your mouth shut”

“We then went to Paddy Hogan’s for a drink and a few sandwiches. I met Danny Healy who was Captain “C” Company, Tralee Battalion, and next in charge to Paddy Cahill. I reported to him what we had seen and heard. He said it was bad news, that the most important man connected with the Volunteer movement was captured. I said, “Is it Monteith?” and he replied, “Worse still, it is Casement” and you keep your mouth shut.”
Bureau of Military History statement of Jack McGaley, Tralee Battalion, Irish Volunteers
