Special Interview 2003


Caithia, a resident of County Cork, was gracious enough to provide this site with pictures and information from the 2003 Commemoration of Collins' assassination as well as the 2003 anniversary celebration of the Collins statue in Clonakilty.

Seamus O'Brien, the Lord Mayor of Clonakilty, stands at the statue of Collins on its first anniversary, August 22, 2003.

The crowd gathered at the 81st Commemoration of Collins' assassination, Beal na mBlath, August 24, 2003.

A wonderful picture of IRA veterans at the Commemoration.

Another shot of the crowd at the Commemoration. Standing in the center of the picture is Nora Owen, a TD from the Fine Gael party. She is Collins' grandniece.


Many thanks to Caithia for providing these beautiful photos to Sara's Michael Collins Site.
