Earlier a request was made on the Forum about the 1965 Hilton Hotel speech made by US Senator Robert F. Kennedy from New York, at the request of Ronan O'Rahilly.
I will include that speech as a part of this post, but there is a back story which you need to be aware of:
First it ties into the visit by Robert F. Kennedy's slain brother John to Ireland in 1963 at a time when Ronan O'Rahilly was in Houston.
Second, the speech was originally part of a ruse to get an interview for the 'National Enquirer' by telling RFK that TAF was the news arm of Radio Caroline, and that the station had been named after RFK's neice.
Third, Ronan O'Rahilly had been sent to New York in order to participate in the US-TV network show 'To Tell the Truth'. O'Rahilly in New York, called Robin Leach at his office in New York, and asked him to get RFK to make this speech which began by first greeting Prime Minister Harold Wilson.
Fourth, RFK was told this speech would be broadcast to the people of Ireland on St Patrick's Day by Radio Caroline, and not just relayed over the speaker system at the London Hilton.
Fifth, the tape was then delivered to Number 10 on behalf of Ronan O'Rahilly.
Sixth, when this took place in 1965, Prime Minister Harold Wilson was participating in the advancement of peace in Ireland, and the intervention by O'Rahilly represented the first of three major attempts by O'Rahilly to attack Prime Minister Wilson by name, and to also insult him in posters and song.
Remember, this is during 1965 at a time when Sinn Fein and the IRA were standing down.
It was around the time of this event that Ronan O'Rahilly began to capitalize on the British killing his grandfather, thus stoking the flames of hate.
Harry Spencer who built the Caroline and Atlanta masts, has described O'Rahilly Sr as hating everything to do with the British.
Like father, like son, but Ronan O'Rahilly was a wolf in sheep's clothing, and a CROOK at that.
