TERENCE MACSWINEY & MICHAEL COLLINS A paid cheque for 17/6d. payable to Micheal O Coileain [Collins], dated 30.vii.1920, drawn on Banc na Mumhan & Laighean Teo. [Munster & Leinster Bank, Cork], signed by Toirdhealbhach Mac Suibhne [Terence MacSwiney], the cheque and details in Irish, crossed, with PAID stamp of Hibernian Bank, countersigned rear by Collins and by D. O Donnchadha, Dail Eireann, with stamp of Comhar-Bannc Sinn Fein Teoranta [Sinn Fein Cooperative Bank Ltd.] dated 5 August, and twice stamped by Hibernian Bank [5 and 6 August]. Terence MacSwiney, Lord Mayor of Cork, was one of the principal collectors for the Dail Loan in Munster; presumably this payment relates to that account. MacSwiney was arrested on 12 August 1920 (two weeks after writing this cheque) while presiding at a Sinn Fein court in Cork, and immediately went on hunger strike. His death after a 74 day fast was covered in the world's press, and was a major setback for British interests in Ireland. A most attractive association item, linking two great Corkmen.
