How to Lose Friends But Make Money
In a new book out in Offaly. his investment in Farrellys in Tarraun (outside Pullough in Offaly) business made him a lot of money. When it was destroyed, Dopping took over the liabilities and put Farrelly working on it, but then copped that a commission Farrelly was earning was making him a lot of money. He overrid that business arrangement, leading Farrelly to give up an emigrate.
Local opposition meant Dopping had to give up the enterprise which was the first commercial exploitation of an Irish bog, and a direct forerunner of Bord na Mona.
Farrelly himself was from the North Longford / Cavan / Meath area.
