Interesting coincidence that the alert in relation to Larkin’s imminent arrival was sent to Tim Healy. He received the letter as Governor General of the Free State, but ten years earlier, Healy had represented the Dublin Employers at the Askwith Inquiry (into the Dublin Lockout). He was a long-time associate of employers’ leader William Martin Murphy and (pace Frank Callanan’s biography) an all-round nasty piece of work.

Interesting. Certainly highlights who took over after the switch.

Healy was a pretty awful character in many ways. He did, however, act for the family of Thomas Ashe after Ashe died on hunger strike in 1917 and on behalf of those interned in Frongoch after the Rising.

FF used to walk out of receptions when Healy appeared (Then Governor General.) according to Andrews.
