COLLINS, Michael Original photograph, circa 140 x 190mm, showing Collins standing on a platform addressing a crowd, said to be at St. Enda’s (Pearse’s school) in Rathfarnham, presumably during the Truce (1921). Mrs. Pearse is on the platform behind him.

Attractive and characteristic photo, showing Collins in a three-piece suit, with moustache, a lock of hair falling on his forehead. Not in Coogan or Connolly. Photographs of Collins are rare, as he deliberately stayed away from the lens until the fighting was over.

Inscribed in pencil on verso: “Michael Collins Addressing the / Members of a Hurling-match / at St. Enda’s / Rathfarnham.’
