Tim and Dolores Crowley have been interpreting the life of Michael Collins since 1997  when they organized the first Michael Collins Tours, taking visitors to the important sites in West Cork associated with the famous patriot. Elizabeth Slyne Crowley, grandmother of Tim Crowley was a cousin of Michael Collins and her husband Tim Crowley was on active service during the 1916 rebellion.

The Crowleys opened a Heritage center on their farm in 2000 and Michael Collins slide shows were held two evenings a week during the summer months. In 2002 the Heritage center was named the Michael Collins Centre and the photograph and militaria exhibition was set up in the cottage theatre.

In 2003, outside the center the ambush trail was laid out, a one hundred meter section of road designed to look like a War of Independence /Civil War ambush site. The Michael Collins Centre Clonakilty is the only facility in Ireland, at which visitors can receive a comprehensive presentation, by expert guides, on the life and times of Michael Collins.
