I knew George Harper of Mount Louise and he employed a close friend as "yardman" at Mount Louise - Christy McAree - who assisted me greatly with data while I was writing my book about that area. As a result I have the "Employment Records" of the Evatts (previous owners of Mount Louise). You may be interested to know that a plane (engaged in target-towing) crashed in the Monaghan Mountains during WW2 and the body of the pilot was held at Mount Louise while negotiations were in progress for his burial.
