I grew up at a time when Michael Collins had been completely
“written out” of the history books except as a failed negociator.
Having beem born in India, where my Roscommon-born father worked as a civil servant all his life, I think of how India won her
Independance peacefully. It took a very long time and much
I dare to wonder, if Michael Collins had not died, would he, perhaps,
have proved to be our Ghandhi”?
