If you want to experience an authentic historical visit to the Michael Collins Memorial in Beal Na Blath, then you should take part in the themed Michael Collins Tour: The Ambush organised by Eugene and Eileen O’Callaghan. The tour involves a visit of the Michael Collins Memorial and the Diamond Bar. Eugene will tell you about the last hours of Michael Collins and local accounts on the events that culminated in Michael Collins death on the 22 August 1922. After the visit of the memorial site you will return to the Diamond Bar (the place where the ambush on Michael Collins was planned). There you can relax and enjoy the rural feel of a country pub with a refreshing drink or a home-made Irish coffee next to a real log fire while listening to some more interesting facts about the ambush on Michael Collins.
