Michael Collins shot dead at Béal na Bláth 1922

#OnThisDay 1922 Michael Collins was shot dead in an ambush by Anti-Treaty forces at Béal na Bláth, Cork. “They won’t shoot me in my own county,” said he. While theories abound, we may never know who fired that fatal shot. Ireland had lost a great leader. #Ireland #History
