Kenny to give Collins speech

TAOISEACH Enda Kenny will deliver the Beal na mBlath oration to mark the 90th anniversary of the death of Michael Collins.

The oration will take place on August 19 at the spot where the Free State general and former IRA commander was shot and killed as he returned to Cork city following a Civil War inspection tour of his native west Cork in 1922.

Mr Kenny delivered the oration six years ago -- but will return given the high-profile nature of the 90th anniversary ceremonies.
