Because there was a faction within the IRA then, that thought he hadn't won everything they hoped for.

Collins was concilliant; de Valera was an extremist.

Collins won nothing by murdering Irish civilians and Irish policemen in a pointless, failed terrorist campaign of murder.

All so southern Ireland could become a colony of the British Empire.

I'm so glad Kevin O'Higgins executed 77 of his fellow terrorists before being assassinated by the IRA, just as Collins was!

Collins won e independence of Southern Ireland; that's more than the Irish had before!

And you cannot make an omelette without breaking eggs.

Collins' legacy is still alive: an independent Republic of Ireland.

That seems to drive you mad ...

"The Britain" (???) has never been united with France.

There are no independent countries in Europe.

That southern Ireland would have to leave the UK was ensured when Westminster stupidly passed the Home Rule Bill on 18th September 1914, ensuring partition and a fullscale civil war in Ulster.

Southern Ireland is just a bankrupt slave of the EU, dependent on massive bailouts from the UK and the IMF, with its entire budget decided by Brussels.

Home Rule guaranteed that southern Ireland could not remain in the UK.
Home Rule did indeed destroy the UK, which is why a fullscale civil war was inevitable by 1914.
You're spouting historical inaccuracies.

Home Rule is called ''Home Rule'' because it specifically referred to Ireland remaining in the UK.

If it was about leaving the UK, it would have been called ''independence''.

So glad the UVF destroyed Home Rule in 1914 and surrendered 33% of Ulster to Republicans forever by 1922.

The Home Rule Bill would've saw Ireland remain a part of the UK.

Who ruined Irish Home Rule within the United Kingdom?

Irish Republicans? Nope.

Ulster Loyalists? Yeah!!

Kings of England have claimed sovereignty in France, if you remember, and England occupied large parts of France for over 100 years.

No independent countries in Europe?
Well, that's what some federalists would like to think.
Hopefully more people will see the light and get Britain out of the tentacules of Brussels soon.

you mean like the murder of Mary Travers, after attending mass, in church grounds, murdered by civilians?

Mikey mouse talks crap, just emulating the pseudo heroes, scum.

New terminology of a war in pseudo lingo---- I can shoot you, but you cannot shoot me! Why did you not give me the chance to surrender---------- I dont think so.

Ok, then let us bomb Claudy, then Belfast on a day known as bloody Friday, then Enniskillen, then Omagh, all acts of civilian pseudo thugs.

F off mickey, you deviant rat.

So you are accusing McVeigh and Rooney of being IRA members when they are recognised as innocent victims?

They drove past McVeigh and indiscriminately shot out the window at him. He was an innocent victim. He wasn't in the IRA.

Yeah and then Loyalists killed more INNOCENT people than any other group in NI.

How about that you pig?

Ireland could not have Home Rule and remain in the UK.

There are no independent countries in the EU.

Home Rule was never going to happen.

So glad we've been reunited since 1973!

Ireland could not have Home Rule. We made this very clear in 1886, 1893 and 1914.

The Home Rule movement destroyed the UK.

Gandhi was just a useful idiot who was deliberately kept alive by the British because he was preventing a fullscale uprising.

Lincoln was one of the most racist men who ever lived, and he fought a civil war to keep the Southern Confederacy in the Union. No democracy there.

Somehow I think Lincoln would have used the army to keep Ireland in the UK in 1919, unlike the left-wing idiot Lloyd George who stupidly only used policemen like the RIC and the heroic Black and Tans.

The monarch's claim to France was abandoned after the French Revolution.

The UK is certainly leaving the failed EU forever. When UKIP wins the European elections next year the Conservative Party will oust the left-wing failure Cameron and install a decent man as leader.
