in Kilmainham and then their bodies were buried in Arbour
The other two leaders executed are:
Thomas Kent who was executed in Cork Army Barracks and
buried next to his execution spot. His remains were
removed in 2015 and re-interned in the family burial plot in
Cemetery near Fermoy in Co. Cork.
Roger Casement was hanged in Pentonville prison in London on
the 3rd. of August, 1916. His body was disposed of,
coffinless, in a quicklime pit.
The quicklime, they said, would consume the flesh
and leave the white bones—the skeleton—intact,
which could then be moved easily. -- Oscar
His remains were returned to Ireland in 1965 and now rest
in Glasnevin Cemetery, Dublin.
