Mick : the real Michael Collins by Peter Hart( Book )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Few people in history have been as mythologized as Michael Collins. Before his death at the age of 31, Collins fought in the Easter Rising, organized the I.R.A., outspied British intelligence, negotiated the Anglo-Irish Treaty, and ran the first independent government of Ireland. To this day, millions revere him as the father of modern Ireland. Yet Collins was first and foremost a man who sought power and exercised it ruthlessly. More politician than soldier, he surrounded himself with followers loyal only to him. And his death left behind a troubled legacy: an I.R.A. he could not control, a Northern Ireland problem he did not solve, and a civil war he could not prevent. Drawing on previously unknown sources, historian Hart explores Collins's life and asks what made him such an extraordinary and complex person.--From publisher description

The Irish revolution Hang up your brightest colours, Achieving freedom ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Hang up your brightest colours: "Kenneth Griffith's moving documentary on the life and death of Michal CDollins, told using Griffith's uniquely dramatic storytelling techniques, was originally judged to be too controversial for TV audiences. The film paints a vivid portrait of a man prepared to give everything he had for the sake of liberty and the concept of unity. From his birth to his early death, and featuring archive footage of Collins and his contemporaries, this is the full story of a man whose action still reverberate almost a century later." -- container
