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.’
