About meThis is the first book about Michael Collins by an author with experience in security issues, party politics, and covert political abuses.

A lecturer in history and social anthropology, SM Sigerson has been active in NGOs, community groups, and electoral politics, throughout her life. In this context she has been a frequent organizer of community events, specializing in event security and public safety. A distant relation of the late Donn Piatt, she comes from a family which also has a long history of military service in various conflicts.

Since the 1970s, she has devoted on-going in-depth study to the subject of secretive interference in lawful political activity, including politically-motivated killings.

Her fascination with Michael Collins’ story inspired six years’ intensive research on his life and times; leading to her re-location to Ireland, and first-hand acquaintance with places, people and culture connected with him.

She is the first author to approach the enigma of Michael Collins' fate, armed with this unique combination of expertise.

About my library"The Assassination of Michael Collins: What Happened At Béal na mBláth?" by SM Sigerson

This book offers a startling new perspective on one of Irish history's most notorious unsolved mysteries: the fatal shooting in 1922 of Michael Collins, Commander-in-Chief of newly-independent Ireland. Its controversial new reconstruction of events at Béal na mBláth may be shocking to some: yet demonstrably fits the known facts and eyewitness accounts.

This is the first book dedicated to this famous "cold case" since John Feehan's landmark study of 1981. It presents the most complete overview of the evidence ever published; as well as an itemized catalogue of the various witnesses' mutual contradictions and corroborations.
