Fr. Francis Collection
The Fr. Francis Collection is a collection of autographed photographs of world leaders. The Collection totalling 30 pictures was donated to the History Club in 2001 by the late Fr. Francis Coyle, a past pupil of St. Columb’s. In his lifetime he wrote to world leaders from the 1950’s requesting their signed picture.
The History Club have continued to add to the collection in his memory and now boasts 97 autographed pictures. A detailed list of the pictures in the collection can be found on the Autographs page.
