Michael Collins was a hero of the Irish struggle for independence. He is most famous for his leadership of the republican military campaign against Britain (the War of Independence) through the Irish Republican Army (IRA). On August 22, 1922, Collins journeyed to County Cork to meet troops of the new Irish Army. His car was ambushed and Collins was shot dead by anti-treaty insurgents.
