At the start of World War II, its Taoiseach Éamon de Valera, adopted a course of neo-neutrality, in that he helped the Allied cause more than he helped the Axis powers. But when Adolph Hitler took his own life, both the Irish President and De Valera caused eyebrows to raise when they signed the Nazi book of condolences in Dublin.
The second version of 'The O'Rahilly' gave his name to a Dundalk football club, but the third version of 'The O'Rahilly', the one who was a barrister; he openly cheered on Adolph Hitler. While Heinkel was bombing London, he hoped that the Nazi Germans would invade the United Kingdom; separate it from Northern Ireland, and then hand over the captive counties to Eire, thus uniting of all of the island of Ireland as one nation.
Then we move up in time to the tangled history of the Nineteen Fifties at Dundalk. 'The Drogheda Independent' for Saturday, January 23, 1954, even described their football club as being 'B' Company 1st Batt. I.R.A.
The reason for juxtaposing two images of Heinkel products, is because one of their products bombed civilians in England (while the barrister also named 'The O'Rahilly' cheered them on.) The other Heinkel product was intended to rescue jobs at the Dundalk Locomotive Works!
Now this is not the image of the O'Rahilly family that has been served up to the trolls who buy into the anorak version of Radio Caroline. When we get to unravelling just how the O'Rahilly family came to control the former railway property at Greenore, more shocks and surprises will await brainwashed minds. So it might be a good idea at this stage to remember just how many lies the unwitting Catholic priest was told to say about Ronan O'Rahilly. Please refer to this video which first appeared on our Blog entry for 4/23/2020.
But the only way this can be explained properly is by peeling back the layers of misinformation that have been fed from the pages of troll books, and then deceived everyone!
However, because the truth is diametrically opposed to the fake stories, and because so many questions are likely to be asked, it is necessary to reveal the side of the story that has been concealed, very slowly; one fact at a time. That is what we are doing.
It is not just sloppy reporting to say that Ronan O'Rahilly's father bought Greenore railway station from British Railways, it is totally untrue. How Ronan's father acquired his financing is also an interesting story, and we will be explaining the answers to all of the questions within the episodes that follow.
But in the meantime, here is a question for the trolls to ponder:
If the O'Rahilly family had a history of hatred for what the English had done to the Irish over the centuries, then why on earth would Ronan's father suddenly turn around and assist a lot of English people create an English pop music station called Radio Caroline?
You will discover the answers here, in editions of this Blog that will follow this one.
