Michael Collins was born on 16th Oct 1890 at a place called Sam's Cross outside Clonakilty, Co Cork. he took part in the 1916 Easter Rising in Dublin. In 1921 Collins was a signatory to a Treaty bring to an end the war between Britain & Ireland. This treaty was not to the liking of all Irishmen and a civil war broke out. Collins had said at the signing "I may have signed my actual death warrant".". He was killed in an ambush at Beal na mBlath in County Cork on the 22nd August 1922. Prior to the treaty Collins was responsible for organising resistance to British rule in Ireland. His tactics are said to be the basis for all Guerrilla warfare.

Would you blame the IRA of the robbing of the national bank in belfast?

Ah but the Ra have always made most of their money through such activities - robberies, smuggling, drugs

Living in London for some time I heard many times about how it was the USA, and Irish-Americans, who were funding the IRA - most people there thought that there was a cup passed around every Irish bar from New York to Boston

No matter how many times I assured them I had been to just about every Irish bar from New York to Boston and had never seen this cup being passed - they would not believe me

Go figure

What do you think of Ireland today Dougal? Do you know Dublin?

Dublin is a hole. Being from Kildare, I am of course going to be a bit biased, however, Dublin is still a hole.

Dublin today reminds me of any other European city - with a few more Irish pubs than the others

If people want to see Ireland - avoid Dublin
