In the news yesterday was the 100th anniversary of the attempted landing of German arms in Kerry by Roger Casement on the Aud-Norge.
But much or the arms were planned to be delivered by train to Millstreet and forwarded to Carriganima for distribution throughout Cork County. The visit of Padraig Pearse, and the thorough scouting of the area by Terence McSwiney were all in preperation for this distribution of arms.
“Halfway between Macroom and Millstreet, Co Cork, Carriganima was the intended rallying point for hundreds of Irish Volunteers from Cork city and county on Easter Sunday, April 23, 1916. The plan was for them move early on Monday to disrupt military attempts to stop German guns being brought by rail from Kerry on the line near Rathmore and Millstreet. Although the plan was deemed pointless when the arms landing was foiled days earlier, almost 500 Volunteers marched to Macroom and Carriganima.”
