Taeger Lexikon gives this as B data, "via biography," from Realta, the Irish Journal, May 1995. Pat Harris in Dublin Astrologer May-July 1998 uses the same chart for Collins.
(Mark Penfield misquotes a biography by T.P. Coogan, "born between 2:30 and 3:00 AM Dublin time." The Coogan bio, "Ireland, Since the Rising," Frederick A Praeger publications, is a story of Ireland and has NO data of Collins.
"Coogan and the IRA, A History," Robert Rinehart Publishers, 1993, is a story of Irish history in which Coogan is only one of many players.)
