To commemorate this occasion, UCD Archives are highlighting some of the material related to him. The series of correspondence below concerns disclosures made by Kevin McDonnell to Eamon De Valera in January 1966 about the fabrication of the Casement diaries – the Black Diaries – and whom McDonnell believes forged them.
