Letter from Michael Collins to Thomas Ashe 21/8/1917.

By Chris Keane:

A letter written in Michael Collins’ hand and signed “M” to Mrs Woods, who acted as housekeeper for him at 9 St. Mary’s Road, Ballsbridge, where he sometimes stayed. Dated 25 May 1921 he thanks her for her trouble and there is mention of Mrs Quinn who was a candidate as a replacement for Mary Woods, who also looked after other republicans on the run including Liam Mellowes, Austin Stack and Desmond FitzGerald, and who was too busy with her other activities for the movement to continue keeping house for them. In the letter Collins expresses doubts over Mrs Quinn’s suitability; in fact he appointed Mrs Comerford (mother of Máire) to the position of “safe house” keeper.

We only lose customers when they die.” -The Frongoch Hairdressing Saloon. This ad is taken from the K.Coy 3rd Battallion IRA reunion dinner in Clery’s in March of 1947. It is for the barbershop of James Mallon. James Mallon, who was born in the north, had a hairdressing business in Eden Quay prior to becoming involved in the republican movement upon joining the Irish Volunteers in 1913. He had fought at Bolands Mills during the insurrection in 1916, and was interned as a result of his role in the rebellion at Frongoch. He is popularly known as the ‘the Frongoch Barber’ from his time there. The advertisement notes that J Mallon and sons was established in 1907, and refers to the business as “The Frongoch Hairdressing Saloon.” There is great wit in the ad, not to mention a picture of Mallon as an older man.
