#OnThisDay 1920 English spy & criminal Frank Digby Hardy was run out of Dublin. Hardy, who hoped to catch Michael Collins & win the £10,000 reward on Collins’ head, was found out when he leaked his plan to Arthur Griffith at a meeting intently filled with international reporters. He was allowed to leave Ireland unharmed. It was a major propaganda victory for the Irish Republicans.
