Dublin Solicitor Has Until 4pm To Leave Home


South Dublin solicitor Brian O’Donnell has until 4 o’clock to leave his home by order of the High Court.

The court yesterday rejected a bid by his children to stop the family’s Killiney house from being repossessed.

Representatives of the receivers pinned notices of trespass on the house’s gates last night – but these have since been taken inside to Mr O’Donnell.

Brian O’Donnell and his wife Mary Patricia owe Bank of Ireland over 70 million euro – and the High Court yesterday blocked their children’s bid to prevent receivers taking possession of the Gorse Hill house on Killiney’s Vico Road.

Mr O’Donnell has been given a new deadline of four o’clock this afternoon to comply – but it’s understood he’s told supporters that he has no intention of leaving.

Representatives of the receivers last night pinned a notice of trespass on the gates of the property.

Members of the media and the new Land League will both gather outside those gates – as that deadline draws nearer.
