Collins’ remains leaving Cork for Dublin

By James Langton: One of my favs. Collins at City Hall, he awaits the Dublin Guard making its way from the Gough Monument in the Pheonix Park to take over Beggars Bush Barracks. When they came into sight at Capel Street (Gratten Bridge), to massive crowd cheering, he said, “Here’s my boys now”.

A story behind this famous photo: I posted this to Terry a long time ago, but wish to share it here with those who may not know: He wears an incongrous kilt and sports an engaging schoolboy grin. In the foreground of the famous photograph, General Michael Collins in full dress uniform, revolver slapping against his thigh, strides purposefully across the square of Portobello Barracks. The Civil War was at its most ferocious and army officers have just attended a memorial Mass in honour of 16 comrades who had been killed in ambush in Co. Kerry. Now, in a quiet room in a Dublin nursing home, the short, stocky man, who is approaching his 80th birthday, gazes at the photograph, sighs and finds it difficult to contain his emotion. “It was very hard to keep up with his stride….” says Alphonsus Culliton. “He was a very strong, fit man, always moving…”.

Collins outside Pro Cathedral, waiting on Griffith who is in the car. Its a mass for the success of the Free State. Its amazing what people have. I was given this photo in a Tyre centre in Ballyfermot.

Michael Collins as a young boy. His mother is in the backround on the extreme left. His grandmother O’Brien is the old lady besise her in the doorway. Im almost certain the girl standing behind him is his eldest sister. The grandmother in this photo was the lady responsible for the creation of the world famous Clonakilthy black and white pudding.
