Tragic Last Days of Collins
Directed and Edited by Marcus Howard. A dramatic exploration of the tragic last days of Collins, his motives in going south, the web of peace feelers, the discovery of stolen money, as well as the motivation and planning of the ambush at Béal na mBlath is explored. The family of Michael Collins speak with more of a neutral authority from grandnephews and grand nieces such as Michael O’Mahony and Mary Clare Collins Powell, as well as great grand nephews such as Neil Collins Powell and Aengus Collins O’Malley. A story overladen with conspiracy is examined from many different perspectives with the aid of noted historians such as Tim Pat Coogan, Adriana Moura, Liz Gillis, Joe EA Connell, Dominic Price and first generation relatives of Ernie O’Malley and Ned Broy, Cormac O’Malley and Aine Broy.
