Today is the 88th anniversary of the death of Michael Collins. He died in an IRA ambush outside the tiny village of Béalnablath in West Cork. A great tragedy for Ireland, and the Irish.

In a little over a week I'll be back on the Ould Sod. I usually wander out to Béalnablath while I am there and will no doubt do that this time as well.
