Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council will shortly be hosting a talk by the historian Maureen Waugh telling the story of how Roger Casement helped three Irishmen who were interned by Germany in 1914.

In 1913, Casement stood on the stage in Ballymoney Town Hall and gave his first ever public speech at the ill-fated ‘Protestant Protest’ in favour of Home Rule. One of the Irishmen he helped release from WW1 internment camps in Germany was John Patrick Bradshaw, from Charlotte Street, Ballymoney.

Maureen Waugh will be in Rasharkin Community Centre on 15th March at 8pm. Admission is free.
