Signing away Irish Sovereignty, collaborating with Brits, , turning against his former comrades, a classic poacher turned gamekeeper....yeah, I agree he'd be a Sinner.rockofcashel said:So are we all agreed.
Collins was a Shinner, and so far amongst all the posts, theres yet to be one decent rebuttal of the idea that he would probably be a Shinner today.
Actually let me be honest. I dont give a shite. What I do find funny though is the amount of different histories of Ireland that can be written in the space of two hours.
Also just on a certain point. For FG people. On the day that Gay Mitchell was elected, his doughter proudly wore a t shirt emblazoned with Collins picture.
How many honest FGers beleive that a man of the gun like Collins would have anything more than utter contempt for such a sorry excuse for a west brit even. I refuse to call him an Irishman. Or like I said before, what would Collins have made of the quintessential FGer of recent times, Mr Bruton.
personally from my own reading of the life and times of Mick Collins, he wouldn't have pissed on the abovementioned two men if they were on fire.
As for Brian Hayes, he'd probably have run for petrol
