Michael Collins Project

We completed a project about Michael Collins. We really enjoyed doing it because it was very interesting. It was especially interesting due to the link he had with our town of Granard. He was engaged to Kitty Kiernan from The Greville Arms.

We found out lots of information about him by going to the local library where Rosemary talked to us, showed us the displays upstairs and allowed us to borrow books about him. Thank you for your help Rosemary!

We also watched a documentary about him.

Mr. Eamonn Brennan came to talk to us also!

We were able to see the letters Michael and Kitty wrote to each other and are very thankful to Mrs. Margot Gearty (Kitty’s niece) for allowing us. Thank you also to The Greville Arms for letting us in to see the lovely displays they have about Michael Collins.

Then we worked in groups to put it all together and make our class display!
