It’s worth pondering what “could’ve been”, innit?
Michael Collins (Irish leader) - Wikipedia

A very interesting video on Michael Collins:

How different our destiny would’ve been without Michael Collins, the man who fought the British Empire to a standstill.

My grandfather (who not only managed to get through WWI but also fought in the 2nd Cork Brigade with Liam Lynch in the Irish War of Independence) knew Michael Collins personally and only had the absolute greatest of praise for one of the true sons of Ireland.

More than 500,000 folks attended his funeral (in a country with around three million inhabitants at the time).
As was said at his grave, “In the way that only the greatest can, he had captured the imagination and hearts of the Irish people”.
