Roger Casement was born in 29 Sandycove Rd. on 1 September 1864. He worked for the British Foreign Office as a diplomat and later became a humanitarian activist, poet and Easter Rising leader. Described as the "father of twentieth-century human rights investigations", he was honoured in 1905 for the Casement Report on the Congo and knighted in 1911 for his important investigations of human rights abuses in Peru.

Casement grew to distrust imperialism. After retiring from consular service in 1913, he became more involved with Irish republicanism and other separatist movements. During World War I he made efforts to gain German military aid for the 1916 Easter Rising that sought to gain Irish independence. He was arrested, stripped of his knighthood and other honours, convicted and executed for high treason on 3rd August 1916.

An exhibition marking his experience in Peru will be on display in the Library throughout August and September.

Venue: dlr Lexicon, Haigh Terrace, Moran Park, Dun Laoghaire, Co. Dublin
