The tapestry of Irish history boasts many an iconic figure weaved into its fabric, their legacies fuelling the stories and memories of our past and present peoples; none more so than Michael Collins. Revered by some, resented by others ‘The Big Fella’ as he was affectionately known, has imprinted his story upon the psyche and culture of our politics and our people since the volatile events of the Irish Civil war and his ultimate assassination in 1922 at Beal na Blath.
