I have amended yesterday's blog several times by both modifying and expanding its text. If you have already read that entry, please take another look.
In the meantime a note of interest to the trolls who love to slag-off the surname of one of 'the Trio'.
I wonder if they have taken time to look at the Google map for Greenore and noticed what is next door to it?
Now take a look at this Tom Tom map from Bing, and it places that same location next door to Dundalk. It would appear that the Google map is in error.
The trouble with 'instant' referencing is that usually the wrong answers come up first, and this is especially true with anything to do with the O'Rahilly family and the birth of Radio Caroline. I will have a lot more to say about Dundalk and its relationship to Greenore in tomorrow's blog.
As for the Haggardstown name, well, it might be related because most of the variations on this name appear to originate from the same source. See: https://hagger.one-name.net/
Shock! Gasp! Horror!
Could 'he' have connections via genealogy to 'that' part of Ireland?
We don't know, but it's kind of an interesting thought, isn't it?
