Portrait of the pair from National Library of Ireland in this article:
 "Elizabeth Mernin: 'The Little Gentleman' in Dublin Castle"
https://www.rte.ie/history/2020/0714/1153296-dictionary-of-irish-national-biography-elizabeth-lily-mernin
There's a colourised version on a FB site "Irish Rebels Restored".
Another article refers to Lily as Michael Collins' "Mata Hari".

Lily's birth registration (as Elizabeth Edith, Dublin 1887, 6 months after her birth) is transcribed on Irish Genealogy.ie as MERRIN.
