January 6 1921 AD: Mad Frank Brophy Dies

The tragic death of Mad Frank Brophy occurs in Wicklow. Frank is an avid supporter of both sides in the Civil War and this evening, coming home late after mass down a dark alleyway, he ambushes himself and guns himself brutally down. Frank is later buried in two neighbouring graveyards and his wives fight bitterly for years over the ten bob note discovered in the deceased man’s trousers.
