By calling into my local for a Michael Collins drink.

One shot and hit the road.

By calling out those who consider a half hour gunfight during a civil war to be an assassination, rather than an ambush from which he could have escaped.

Still trying to figure out who shot Collins....Was it the British or his free state comrades or was it the Ira....we will never know but my hunch is that it was his free state comrades trying to get him out of the way in order to gain the upper hand in the civil war...

''Collins is known to have been looking "very pleased" at hearing of the shooting of Wilson, on the subsequent evidence of one of his generals. He even tried to arrange a rescue attempt for the two assassins. This was something that had been accomplished before but the agent who investigated the possibility on this occasion reported it to be impossible.'' - https://www.google.ie/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjluvHZ9tPVAhXEJMAKHbE3DfEQFgglMAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.******************%2Fthreads% 2Fthe-london-brigade-of-the-ira.13106%2F&usg=AFQjCNGzPlP4uyW5_Lc8dVgnDROdjN_h2g

I think the State have disbanded the 2016 Committee and have no intentions of having any further commemorations. How will Dunne and O'Sullivan be remembered? :cool:

The glorious 12th must be fun for him.
