written by


The Michael Collins Album is a unique collection of photographs that catalogue the life of this great man. It includes many illustrations of the buildings and locations he would have known in Ireland and Britain but as they are today, together with rare photographs of his family and the people he knew. It also includes photographs of personal items such as his Waterman's fountain pen and his GAA medal, won for sprinting in 1914.
This stunning compilation also covers his relationship with the love of his life Kitty Kiernan, and includes a close up of Kitty Kiernan's watch, a pre-engagement present from Collins.
A must have for all Michael Collins enthusiasts, this book is a pictorial history of one of the men who shaped Ireland, and the intriguing images prove that a picture is worth a thousand words.
