Michael Collins Commemoration 2010
The 2010 Michael Collins commemoration will take place today, 22 August 2010 at Béal na mBláth, where he died in 1922.
Each year, a speaker is invited to deliver the Oration at the site. This year's speaker will be Fianna Fail Finance Minister, Brian Lehihan. The choice of speaker has been somewhat controversial and has been criticised by members of the opposition Fine Gael party who feel they have a closer connection with the Collins legacy.
More details are available at the General Michael Collins website.
