Because of his expertise as a developer. I’m sure it was an arms-length transaction.

Anyone see the movie “The Big Short”? Remember the scene where they go to Florida to look at some of the properties associated with some of the sub prime mortgages they had selected at random. And the realisation hits them that the whole mortgage situation is a sham waiting to collapse.
Well, if they make a movie about the Irish side of the crash, this is the similar moment below

Developer tells bankruptcy official he viewed Shrewsbury Road house from outside

Attempts by the missus to avoid discovery of documents relating to the transfer of Sean’s interest in assets in (SA and Ailsbury Rd. etc) to her to limit their availability to his creditors, gets short shrift from the beak.
