Larkin did not 'flee to US' after funds charge

KEVIN Myers (Irish Independent, July 28) claims that James Larkin fled to the US after embezzling union funds in 1914.

This allegation would be familiar to readers of Mr Myers's columns, for he has made it a couple of times before.

Larkin was indeed charged and convicted of conspiracy to defraud in 1910.
