So far we have microscopically zeroed-in on events centered around the life and times of Aodogán O'Rahilly who lived at Clondalkin on the outskirts of Dublin, Ireland, which is where the business that he managed called Weatherwell Ltd., had its factory. Some have raised questions about our methodology, and why we constantly repeat information.
We do so in order to build upon a solid foundation of one item at a time, just like building a brick wall with one brick at a time. We use maps to show what the building plan is all about, especially since geography is not a hot and top subject to many people.
Another reason is simply this: We are in the process of totally destroying the mythology of Ronan O'Rahilly and those who assisted him such as Ian Cowper Ross. By "destroying" we mean revealing with incontrovertible proof that Ronan O'Rahilly and Ian Cowper Ross were liars who were paid to deceive "the great unwashed" - the followers of the 'pop' version of historical events - including the history of pop music and broadcast media.
In other words, what we are documenting and revealing is at total odds with what everyone else has claimed about the reasons for the creation of Radio Caroline, and who was really behind the fake propaganda that was spread by Ronan O'Rahilly and Ian Cowper Ross. Consequently a lot of people who have published articles and books and made radio and television documentaries based upon the fake storyline, have a lot to lose.
They lose total credibility, and that is why many of their supporters have come out with abusive rhetoric hurled in our direction. That is all they have. This is microscopically detailed information that stands the test of close examination. It destroys the myth-makers.
Does this mean that we now have all of the answers?
This is information that is still being uncovered.
We invited others to participate in our original 'Radio Caroline Investigation' newsletter. All that came out of that attempt were two plagiarists who ran off with bits of information from us, and taken out of context which they then published to satisfy their own vanity and to extract money from gullible fools who bought their books.
So we then turned to this Blog format.
We have documented the formation of Weatherwell Ltd before World War II (WWII), and how and why Aodogán O'Rahilly and a colleague with another business at Kingscourt, Ireland, went to the USA after WWII in order to seek financial help under provisions of the USA Marshall Plan.
Then we documented how Weatherwell Ltd bought the deserted railway station at Greenore, using a loan backed by the Irish government. That purchase was followed by a second acquisition using more borrowed money to buy the derelict hotel next to the railway station at Greenore.
Plans were publicly announced to merge the interests of the Clondalkin business with those of the Kingscourt business to establish a new factory on the site of the to-be demolished railway station and hotel at Greenore. That did not happen due to a downturn in business and the financial health of Weatherwell Ltd.
After getting approval from the Irish government, Weatherwell Ltd., was able to reapply the loans obtained under its original plans, and use them to finance a new venture which entailed entering into a working relationship with the Irish government's transportation authority, which in turn had a contractual working relationship with the UK government's British Road Services (BRS) transportation authority. BRS operated in both Northern Ireland and on the main island of Great Britain (England, Wales and Scotland).
As a result of these agreements, the resulting confederated interest group caused Irish Customs to return to its vacated office at Greenore in order to officially reopen the Port to sea traffic. In 1960 the first vessel was chartered from a British company to make twice-weekly stops at Greenore. It was a small container ship capable of carrying Weatherwell Ltd export products. However, to make this project work, Weatherwell Ltd could not be the only customer!
The Weatherwell products were delivered from Clondalkin by road haulage, and taken to Greenore where they were offloaded on to the ship. The offloading of the containers was made possible by the reapplied loans which had paid for a single quayside crane capable of transferring the containers from truck to ship. This was a sink or swim, shoestring operation.
At that time in 1960, hope was expressed that this new business venture would flourish and more sailing dates would be added. Advertising was placed in a Belfast, Northern Ireland newspaper. While all of this was taking place, the big electronics factory at Larne, Northern Ireland owned by PYE, was also having trouble getting its exports shipped to the island of Great Britain.
However, instead of the financial climate improving in Greenore, the area itself continued to slide into a zone with "no future" as its population fled from the Cooley peninsula abutting Carlingford Loch in the County of Louth, Ireland.
Weatherwell Ltd., remained the primary customer and therefore the reopening of the Port of Greenore offered no immediate improvement in the financial fortunes of Weatherwell Ltd.
By January 26, 1963, the County of Louth was addressing its options in dealing with the downturn of its economy, and it was considering some form of financial stimulus backed by the government.
It is at this moment in time that one of the sons of Aodogán O'Rahilly who had arrived in London during 1961, made an appearance in the life of Allan James Crawford.
But here is the all-important difference between what others have written and said, and what we are now revealing:
Allan James Crawford did not go to Aodogán O'Rahilly to ask him for money ....
Allan James Crawford went to Aodogán O'Rahilly to offer him money ....
Ronan O'Rahilly's father was short of cash, and Allan James Crawford needed a port for the mv Fredericia and the mv Mi Amigo.
Aodogán O'Rahilly had access to land facilities adjoining a port and influence in the management of that port.
There is a MAJOR difference between these two interpretations.
The first one is false. That is the one claimed by the writers and broadcasters to date - who have not performed original research!
The second one is true. That is the one we are now revealing from our microscopic analysis of contemporary documentation.
Crawford had money because of the real people behind the original Radio Caroline project!
The key is in understanding the financial positions in 1963 of Aodogán O'Rahilly and Allan James Crawford who represented the hidden backing of Charles Orr Stanley and John Stanley. Those two controlled the PYE Group of companies, and their fellow investors who shared a common cause in sponsored commercial television and radio broadcasting.
It all began to come together in 1963 ...
