Golf seems to play a huge part and seems to connects John G to Bob Symington etc

Oceanico regularly run Golfing Events with the Associação Portuguesa de Seniores de Golfe, curated by Teresa Symington, whose husband Bob Symington is a member of the famous Symington Port and Wine dynasty and (I think) the brother of Oceab Club owner David Symington. Bob would also be Uncle to David's son, Angus Symington - the celebrated Robert Murat lookalike.
10. Bob Symington appears to have attended Oratory School in England between the years of 1944-49. Like John Henry Murat's Bradfield boarding school, this Roman Catholic Prep School is based in Reading, in Berkshire. Paul Symington - now Joint Managing Director of the Symington Estates and the eldest son of Michael Douglas Symington - was also schooled at the Oratory School prior to studying French at the Université de Neuchâtel in Switzerland.
Bob's long-time friend, Andrew Bull (who died in 2009), like Bob's nephew Johnny Symington, served with the British Embassy and the British Council in Portugal. The pair had met whilst boys at the Oporto British School.
Bull, also born in Oporto, was the son of a Director of Mackenzie & Co in the port wine trade. He began his teaching career at Tulse Hill, in South London (Murat father also lived in Tulse Hill for a time). He left to become Head of the History Department at a large Forces Comprehensive School in Germany. Bull recently retired as the chairman of the British Community Council of Lisbon.
The owners of the Estrela da Luz apartments now own the Vilamoura Golf Course that Daily Telegraph journalist, Martin Symington speaks so fondly of in his Algarve Reports. Oceanico often organise events at the nearby Palmares Golf Club - where Murat and girlfriend Michaela Walczuch met with business associates Jorge da Silva and his son on the day Madeleine went missing.
They also own the Millennium, Pinhal, O Connor Jnr and (Nick) Faldo course in Silves, the Victoria in Vilamoura and the Amendoeira Academy.
Oceanico is financially supported by the Anglo Irish Bank but Fagan and Burgess are also backed by a consortium of Irish-Americans in New York.
Terry Devey - the Dublin-based construction tycoon is also an investor.

In 2008 Republic of Ireland boss Giovanni Trapattoni took the international football team to stay at the Estrela da Luz apartments.

Another Portuguese golfing sponsor and construction millionaire, John Geraghty loaned the McCanns the use of his Praia da Luz apartment in the months immediately after Madeleine's disappearance, allowing the Leicester couple leave their infamous Renault Scenic in the garage. Geraghty is also allegd to have requested the keys to the church in Praia da Luz on behalf of the McCanns. Geraghty's father arrived in England from County Galway in Southern Ireland.

Add to this that the Irwin Sisters grandmother was also a Geraghty. Just another coincidence?

This man still flies under the radar. He was there at the very beginning of this story, helping the McCann's by letting them stay in his property directly after Madeleine went missing. He stored their hire care, got them the keys to the church so they could--pray--in peace away from the media, my interpretation on that, so the McCann's could discuss what to do next without fear of being overheard. I have read that Geraghty loaned the McCann's a car but haven't found any real proof on that.  

Unless I have missed it we still know very little about this man and his true involvement.

Is there a positive ID on him ?

An elusive man, John Geraghty is presumed to be the Mountsorrel businessman, John Geraghty of Geraghty Construction Ltd based in Sleaford, Lincolnshire. In a rare piece of footage on Sky News, John Geraghty appears briefly in the following video clip. He is the white haired man reading the newspaper, and speaking with a Yorkshire accent. - See more at: http://madeleinemccann.org/profile-john-geraghty/#sthash.zxZ8VWO8.dpuf


He does indeed fly under the radar. I have tried to see who he is connected to (he was from Leicester I believe prior to moving to Algarve)  I think there is possibly a golf connection and Freemason connection.
His involvement included providing church keys and car storage. He has managed to keep his profile low but I am speculating there was a lot of motivation for him to assist..

He is a member of the hole in one club at Boavista Golf club, near PdL.  

from PAMALAM site :

JOHN GERAGHTY (68 ) Year 2007
John Geraghty A 68-year-old businessman from Leicestershire who now lives in a villa on the outskirts of Praia da Luz.
On the Sunday the McCann's left Praia da Luz to go home, Mr Geraghty was with other friends at Faro airport to see them off, the car the McCann's hired during their stay in Portugal was later seen in the double garage at Mr Geraghty's villa on an exclusive golf resort just three miles from Praia da Luz. Gerry and Kate had asked him if he could store the car.



To be at the airport to see them off indicates he had reason to help them and be supportive - not just a casual acquaintance.

Father Jose Pacheco who comforted Gerry and Kate McCann in the days after Madeleine vanished later claimed that he had been the victim of some form of deception.
The priest even ordered every trace of the Madeleine appeal removed from his church of Our Lady of the Light.
Friends of Jose Pacheco said he could no longer bear to discuss the case.
“Even when his friends broach the subject he immediately changes it,” said one.
“He says it is an extremely unpleasant situation and the McCann family only ever brought him problems.
“He even told one friend they ruined his life.
“There are two completely different Pachecos, the one before the McCanns and this shell of a man after the McCanns. He is a nervous wreck.”
What were the problems that forced Father Pacheco to become “a shell of a man” after the McCanns?
Read this story, originally in the Daily Mail here.
Geraghty Construction Incident

John Geraghty
After Geraghty Construction failed to pay a bill to one of its clients, the client – Paul Young – marched into the company’s headquarters in Sleaford Lincolnshire, armed with a five-gallon drum of industrial sealant and poured it all over the office computers and furniture.
Despite causing £24,000 worth of damage Paul Young walked free from court after Lincoln Crown Court Judge Michael Heath took sympathy on him and said he had acted out of “understandable frustration”.
Read the original Daily Mail story in this site here.
Conclusions
Some amateur sleuths in website forums have surmised that John Geraghty is in fact a Freemason and is acquainted to Gerry McCann through this association. A “John Geraghty” shows up on a NHS document for an Infection Control Committee where he is listed as “Estates”. Whether this is the same John Geraghty who is a friend of the McCanns is unknown and attempts to find out through the hospital at Leicester proved fruitless. Our emails and phone calls were not answered.
The Geraghty in Praia da Luz certainly had access to the church and from the interview above we know he attended the church and is the same man. For more speculation, read the article on Pat Perkins and her friend Aurelio.

Stinks of freemasonry ,being discussed over on another thread ,links with G and NIGHTS TEMPLAR. So have no fear this is going to be a complete whitewash.

New Textusa blog regarding 'carman', John Geraghty, who offered to help the McCanns store their cadaver-stinking car so they could do independent forensic tests.

He also allegedly helped them get the keys for the church.

Yes - please be aware that much of what is written in this thread about JG is false information (unintentionally..). Here is a picture of the real JG, who has been Captain at Boavista Golf Club.

Anyone have that picture for comparison?

It's here  http://gazetadigitalmadeleinecase.blogspot.co.uk/2007/09/john-redwood-tory-mp-mc-canns-theory.html

The Portuguese side, after four months, seem to have decided that the little girl is dead and the parents were involved in the death. To prove this it would be helpful to have a body, and an autopsy which shows how she died. At the very least, if they cannot find the body, it would help if they had an independent witness who had seen the death occur, or had seen the parents moving the body after the time of the disappearance. It demonstrates little police competence that this most closely watched couple was able according to sources to keep the body from police attention immediately after the disappearance, and then to move the body many days later. How come the police did not search extensively enough to find the body at the beginning? How did they miss any evidence of harm to the child they now might claim to have? How did no-one see anything strange when the body was moved?

The Mc Canns theory that the girl was abducted also needs evidence to support it. Can they clear away any doubt over whether entry was forced into the holiday home? Were there no screams or disturbances as the little girl was taken? Did no-one see her at any point as she was carried away? Why has no-one seen her since, despite the massive awareness campaign? How did the abductor time the removal, given the fact that parents and friends were returning to keep an eye or ear open for the children?

Have the police questioned all who left that resort around the time of the loss of Madeleine

Do we know if John Geraghty was interviewed and whom by?

I too believe that the real John Geraghty is the guy connected with the Boavista golf club (and also believe that's him in the 'scenic' photo earlier in this thread), which fills me full of intrigue as to why on earth the media would want to fool peope into believing otherwise. What were they protecting him from and what (if any) power did he hold?

He seems a normal family guy from his facebook (general comments on golf and on his grand children's posts) but then again there's no such thing as 'normal' in this case. 

I'm also a bit suspicious that there's very little on google about him. All I could find out is that he lives in Lagos, married to Roberta Patricia Geraghty - they were still living together in England in 2003, in Buckinghamshire. Roberta is an ex company director for Sanex? And most of their family live in Leceistershire. John has a lot of Belgian contacts also. 
I just find the whole Geraghty thing odd.
