Because of the potential for a language barrier, that could create confusion for some, or even misunderstanding for many, we will attempt to clarify the political and geographical jurisdiction within which Greenore is located. This addendum shows the means by which Greenore was governed back in late 1959, as referenced by the name of Bernard Rafferty in Part 6 of the present series.
For reference we are using the explanation found Online and titled 'Louth County Council' at:
The County of Lough is outlined with the locations of Greenore and the County Town of Dundalk highlighted. The County is administered by dividing it into local areas and Greenore is today part of the Dundalk-Carlingford Loch area, which is represented by local councillors.
Together with other areas within the County of Lough (today there are four), their elected officials meet at Dundalk. Each year these councillors elect a chairperson known as the Cathaoirleach. During the years 1960 to 1967, the person relected Cathaoirleach was Bernard Rafferty, a member of the Fianna Fáil Party.
