Dunne ducks out of D4 and heads west


Judge SLAMS Dunne as “deeply dishonest” and keeps him in bankruptcy for **ANOTHER 12 YEARS.


Did Dunne take out a bunch of bananas at any point during proceedings?



Wish that judge had been on the Lowry case! :imp:


Now that he has been dealt with the next key decision one expects will concern his equally principled wife.

The Indo now has the Dunner story.

With this coupled with the Ben Gilroy judgment, is it too much to hope that finally judges are getting fed up seeing absolute chancers taking the piss?

Are we about to see a tsunami of tough judgments?!


Ms. Justice Caroline Costello, Taoiseach’s granddaughter. Ready to give both barrels to this jumped-up fraudster. He thought this would be the end of his bankruptcy but it’s only the beginning 8DD


Well Gilroy messed around banks and receivers who no one really believes fully, and rightly so. So he got lots of chances

Dunne’s mistake was to treat his fight against the Bankrupty Official like he would a normal civil fight in his business career.

When you’re involved in a Civil case for the first time against a slippery customer you are shocked at how much lying, concealing, misstatements, evasion and histrionics in their sworn affidavits. You spend your own affidavits contradicting them. A lot of the time both sides are concealing and evasive. And judges are used to this and weigh things up.

But in this case his counterparty was an Officer of the High Court. The judge took all his affidavits as inarguable facts. Dunne clearly didn’t understand the risk.


Another court loss for Gayle:

Tick, Tock. Tick Tock…


The trustee of Sean’s American bankruptcy is back in court, trying to recover the assets he gave Gayle. She professes ignorance …of everything.

She responded that she didn’t understand how such things were worded.

“You have a law degree, do you not?” Mr Curran asked.

“I do,” Killilea replied. “Not a Swiss one.”

Remember these assets, if recovered, would largely go to NAMA i.e. the Irish taxpayers who are stuck with Anglo’s loans.


Insulting the intelligence of the court is standard practice in Ireland and our judges will believe six impossible things before breakfast if a witness swears to them.

In America - not so much…


Gayle is handed a hefty bill by the jury

and there may be more to come:

US District Judge Jeffrey Meyer had reserved his own judgment on these counts and other documented transfers, and may yet order additional reliefs for Mr Dunne’s creditors to be imposed.


More than 200 bankrupts probed over suspicions they are hiding their assets

The State’s Insolvency Service is probing hundreds of cases where people who have declared themselves bankrupt are suspected of hiding assets.

Some are trying to keep cars and properties out of the hands of the bankruptcy officials and their creditors, with others suspected of illegally transferring assets to relations before opting for bankruptcy.

The Insolvency Service of Ireland has disclosed it is investigating 210 cases.

Hidden assets worth €3.8m were recovered in one instance, according to the 2018 annual report of the Insolvency Service of Ireland.

Bankrupts were trying to keep bank accounts, buy-to-let properties, cars and rental income secret.

A number of those seeking to sort out their debt situation had attempted to give their assets to a relative prior to bankruptcy, something which is illegal.

Earlier this month, a US jury awarded €18m to bankrupt developer Sean Dunne’s bankruptcy trustee after finding against him and his wife Gayle Killilea over the unlawful transfer of some assets to put them beyond the reach of creditors.

The Irish Insolvency Service was involved in that case.

Its annual report says that a new enforcement and compliance team was set up last August.

A crackdown on dishonest bankrupts led the Insolvency Service of Ireland to take 19 cases back to the High Court over what it said was non-­cooperation.

The sanctions imposed were extension orders making the bankruptcy term longer. Bankruptcy terms were extended for between 10 months and close to 12 years.

One year is the normal bankruptcy term.

The Insolvency Service (ISI) said bankruptcy was a process that delivered debt relief to bankrupts while transferring all their assets to the official assignee.

“The integrity of the system depends on bankrupts making full disclosure and co-operating with the official assignee. The bankruptcy division of the ISI will continue its policy to vigorously pursue the recovery of assets not declared,” interim CEO Chris Lehane said in the report.

Last year a total of 397 people were adjudged bankrupt, with 461 people leaving bankruptcy.

The number of bankruptcies last year was down 76 on the figures for 2017.

Most of the people declared bankrupt last year had petitioned the High Court themselves.

In a small number of cases creditors petitioned the court in an attempt to get some of the money they are owed.

Just over €11bn in assets was realised by the official assignee from the bankruptcy process last year.

€11bn in assets last year alone. Across just 400 bankrupt cases, that’s an average of €27m each



Former ‘baron of Ballsbridge’ Dunne lashes out at Nama and bankruptcy trustees in new trial bid

The former developer is seeking a new trial or reversal of the verdict in June that found that Dunne had fraudulently transferred some assets to his then wife Gayle Killilea to put them beyond the reach of creditors.

(Business Post)


A successful day in court for the former Baron of Ballsbridge. He had been ordered to pay €7,000 a month to his creditors when he was made bankrupt I.e. absolved of all his billions in debts. Now he will pay nothing, zilch, because the court accepted his bull*hit story that he had a “net personal income of €1,371 a month“. Yeah, he brazenly told the court that he was living on €44 a day and the court, being the Irish commercial court, lapped it up.

Remember, this is the man who was not allowed to exit bankruptcy because of his devious behaviour or, in legal terms,

He was due to exit his Irish bankruptcy in 2016 but it was extended by 12 years in 2013 after Ms Justice Costello found he had not co-operated with the official assignee.


Do the judiciary and our political parties imagine that these insults will be taken lightly by the Irish people? Do they think we have forgiven the likes of the Dunner? We know that the current debacle in the property market is a further outworking of the building collapse after the Tiger years.

Remember when Ms. Justice Cahaya greeted the Taoiseach on the re-opening of Dublin Zoo? They’re pissing on us from a height.



Another twist in this tale. He says he is not a fraudster but, in fact, he is a victim of fraud, by his own children!

This concerns property near the K-Club. Could it include the house where the art work was hung not on the wall but inside the walls? Not to evade his creditors but making a profound statement about the relationship of art and real estate.
