Michael Collins Memoriam card printed after his death on 22/08/1922
"Oh ! hideous war ! that splits our land
Whilst brother 'gainst brother strives
Good God in mercy never planned
This useless waste of noble lives
Tho' Michael Collins sleeps in death.
And Erin's lost a noble son.
We pray that with his parting breadth
That peace for Ireland may be won."
