“There is to be a general rising tomorrow. Dublin Castle is to be attacked”

32 Landsdowne Rd

Under Secretary,

The following is a decipher of a wire received by me now (3.45 am 24.4.16) from District Inspector Tralee County Kerry. WH O Connell

The man arrested here as David Mulcahy has given a full statement, he says he is David Julian Baily R.I. Rifles. Taken prisoner September 1914 and joined Irish Brigade at Limbourg and landed at Banna Strand with Casement and Monteith. The implicates Stack and Collins, states a captured Wilson liner with arms ammunition and machine guns was to be piloted into Fannit tonight or tomorrow and there is to be a general rising tomorrow. Dublin Castle is to be attacked. Have wired Queenstown who think boat referred to has been sunk.

I am sending information to Major Price. The different counties will be placed on alert as regards Monteith. WHOC
