|Celtic Radio Community > General Discussion > Michael Collins - 100th Annniversary Of HIs Death|
|Posted by: haynes9 22-Aug-2022, 08:06 AM|
| Today marks 100 years since the ambush and subsequent death of Michael Collins. He is a fascinating study and figure in Irish history.
One has to wonder what would have become of Ireland and Irish independence had he not been killed.
As a history buff (I am certainly no expert), I hope this will trigger a renewed study of his life and the principles that he stood for.
Have a great day, everyone!!

|Thank you Haynes, I enjoyed looking up this figure in history. Yes - you wonder what would happen if he had not been killed. The British empire was one of the most brutal empires there was - we seem to pepper it with stories of lore and music.|
