Yesterday we reported on the auction process at Greenore, and today we revisit that same issue. It is only by microscopically taking apart all of the reported events while totally ignoring the mythology that has been repeatedly reported in order to blot out and obscure the real story, that we can PROVE beyond reasonable doubt, that the storyline built around Ronan O'Rahilly is 100% fake! That is why we are revisiting a news item that we focussed upon yesterday in its entirety.
Therefore please remember, we are not following the biographical story of Ronan O'Rahilly, we are following the biographical account of his father, Aodogán O'Rahilly. While his son Ronan set out to deceive and obscure, his father did not!
The only problem with following the published reports about his father are the somewhat contradictory and poor reporting standards employed by journalists who interchange names as if they are one and the same, when in law, they are not. In other words none of these purchases were made in the name of Aodogán O'Rahilly, they were made in the name of Weatherwell Limited. The same is true of the Seller which was not British Railways. But these names are interchanged by journalists as if they are.
Now please notice why Weatherwell Limited was buying up various properties at Greenore. Previously Weatherwell Limited had entered into a contract with a supplier to produce raw materials for the manufacture of "plastic board". Other reports refer to plaster board and plaster. These products were to be made with new machinery in a new factory to be built on the site of the old railway station and hotel at Greenore.
The aim was to begin work on the site early in the Summer of 1955.
This did not happen.
If you follow the previous Blog entries, you will note that the source of financing for these developments was tied up in various government guaranteed loans, and due to the failure of Weatherwell Limited to perform as specified in the loan contracts, this matter became a controversial political issue. However, because Aodogán O'Rahilly wore more than one 'hat', he was able to steer clear of impending disaster and have the loan guarantees transferred to a purpose other than the original purpose that had been authorized.
What this means is that by late 1955, Aodogán O'Rahilly was treading water, or playing for time to see if the business climate would improve in favor of the company he managed. Weatherwell Ltd did not stop working on its business plan, but it had to slow down on its time line due to circumstantial financial pressures.
Now we are ready to see what happened next in 1956, with Weatherwell Ltd still operating from its factory base near Dublin, while sitting on land and improved property all resting idle at Greenore, which was some considerable distance from its factory.
Part 5 in this series will follow tomorrow.
