The path to freedom
Articles & Speeches by Michael Collins
...his name burns brightly wherever the Irish
meet. Michael Collins was the man who made modern Ireland possible.
Tim Pat Coogan
The Path to Freedom is the only
published work of Michael Collins, who was, for a time, the most wanted man in the British
Empire - "the man they couldn't catch". The articles and speeches contained in
this book throw light not only on the Irish War of Independence, the Irish Civil War and
the foundation of the Irish Free State but also on crucial contemporary issues.
Many books have
been written about the life and death of Michael Collins. The Path to Freedom is the only
book he wrote himself.
