Mr. Tim Pat Coogan Lecture "Michael Collins & the Bankers" at Glasnevin Museum

  • Within days of being appointed Minister for
    Finance in 1919 Michael Collins set about raising
    the funds necessary for Dail Eireann.
    The writer Frank O’Connor captures Collins’s
    application.”He was a born improvisator, and from the moment
    he was appointed Finance Minister the department
    of Finance began to function; within a few weeks
    his mighty Loan was under way, and even to-day,
    when we have forgotten or can no longer imagine
    the preposterous conditions under which the
    department worked – censorship, imprisonment,
    confiscation, murder – one is filled with respect for
    the variety and thoroughness of the work
    performed”But what would Ireland’s first Minister for Finance
    make of our present day banking crisis?
    As part of the Glasnevin Trust lecture
