Portrait photograph of Michael Collins in uniform, taken between 1914 and 1922. Collins was a revolutionary leader, chairman of the Irish provisional government, and commander-in-chief of the provisional government army before his assassination on 22 August 1922.
He was not court-martialled after the Easter Rising but was interned until December 1916 in Frongoch, north Wales, where he became a dominant figure in what has been described as the ‘university of revolution’, leading discussions on military tactics, confronting authority over prison conditions and participating in Irish-language classes, although he had no official rank.
