Collins's grave

•An article published in the Irish Independent titled "Dedicated Denis passes Collins's baton" incorrectly gives the impression that the grave of Michael Collins in Glasnevin Cemetery is dependent for its preservation on the attendance of private individuals and interest groups acting on their own initiative. The maintenance of Michael Collins's grave, which is owned by the State, is undertaken by Glasnevin Trust. The Trust welcomes and acknowledges the keen interest shown over many years by several members of the public towards the grave of Michael Collins.
