History Talks: The Financial War presented by Dr. Andrew McCarthy

During the revolutionary years 1919-1922 Michael Collins was Minister for Finance for Dáil Éireann. Dr. Andrew McCarthy of the School of History, UCC, will discuss Collins’ role including the raising of the Dáil Loan bonds and the tracking down anti-Treaty funds during the Civil War which may have encouraged his ill-fated final journey to Cork in August 1922.
