W4343 : Crossley Tender

taken 9 years ago, 4 km W of Timoleague, Co Cork, Ireland

Crossley Tender
Crossley Tender
A somewhat crude replica of a Crossley Tender LinkExternal link on display at the Michael Collins Centre LinkExternal link between Clonakilty and Timoleague.

It stands on a bit of road built to simulate the point at Béal na Bláth W4062 where Collins was killed. A few yards away is a replica of the armoured car which was also in the convoy.

At this centre you get a very detailed, step by step description of Collins' death. The Wikipedia article LinkExternal link on the same subject stresses the uncertainty that exists about the incident.
