Fine Gael is holding a €25-a-head summer barbecue in Taoiseach Micheál Martin’s local GAA club in Cork this weekend as part of events to mark the centenary of Michael Collins’s death.

The party has organised a series of commemorative events to mark the 100th anniversary of Collins’s assassination over the coming weeks, including a subsidised screening of the Neil Jordan biopic Michael Collins for party members at cinemas across the country next month and a €60-a-head four-course lunch in the Dublin hotel where some of the film was made.
