BRIAN O’DONNELL SAYS IT COULD BE 5 YEARS UNTIL HE GETS JUSTICE
Brian O’Donnell says he and his family know it could be another five years until they get justice in their legal battle with Bank of Ireland.
The former solicitor and his wife finally left the Gorse Hill house in Killiney in Dublin last week, after they failed to stop a receiver taking control of the property.
He is now planning on taking his case to the European Court of Human Rights.
And Mr O’Donnell says they are also keen to help others feeling pressure over their dealings with banks.
He has cited the example of one man he met last week.
“I was walking down the street and this man came up to me and said ‘I was going to shoot myself yesterday, and I had a shotgun out’ – and we came on some programme, my son and I Blake – and he said ‘I saw that’ and said ‘you’re fighting, you’re doing something, you’re trying to do something which is helpful and is fighting back against these banks’…and he put the gun away” he said.
