Fancy A Lock Of The Big Fella’s Hair?

at

Well you can’t have it, sicko. Jeez.

Bidders at Adams auction house on Stephen’s Green at 11am this morning were due to vie for a tangled lock of Michael Collins’ hair – taken from his body as he lay in state by his sister Kitty. The starting price would have been €3000 – €5000.

Respectfully withdrawn from auction yesterday, the hair will now be donated to the National Museum.

Proper order. Harrumph.

Next week, a medical swab used to wipe the Big Fella’s face before he was embalmed will be auctioned at Mealy’s. A snip at €450 – €600.

    If only cloning was perfected and could be accelerated….we could get Collins V2.0 to take over from this shower.
