"Michael Collins had many roles in his short lifetime. He fought in the 1916 Easter Rising. He was Commander-in-Chief of the Irish Army Minister for Finance leader of a network of spies battling against the British forces and a chief negotiator in the Anglo-Irish Treaty. He was killed in 1922 in an ambush at Béal na Bláth at the age of 31. His death robbed Ireland of one of its finest leaders. Admired by many and feared by his enemies this is the story of Michael Collins – ‘The Big Fellow’. ‘This series is a fantastic resource for parents and teachers alike. A true gem’ Inis – Children’s Books Ireland magazine. ‘A series for young readers which provides an entertaining and lively introduction to some of our oldest stories’ – Robert Dunbar ‘The Heroes series brings the people who took part in 1916 to life in what may well be for many young people a first and engaging introduction to the founders of modern Ireland’ Stephen Meyler RTE Guide ‘In its new Heroes series Poolbeg is offering a very exciting way to enjoy history. I’m wondering if Irish history was taught in schools through books like these would a lot more people grasp our heritage from a much younger age?’ "
