The Last wish of an unsung Irish Hero
Joe Collins joined the IRA in 1917 and was with them through to the end of the Civil War. In Joe’s own words we hear about his ‘Many arguments with the Tans’. In one episode Joe tells of the night he went up a ladder with cans of petrol tied to his back and set fire to the Lismore Courthouse. He was badly burnt and shot at as he escaped. Joe often risked his life during these troubled times and like so many he is an unsung hero.
