Heard a report on drivetime last night that NAMA’d art, possibly from the bling acquired using borrowed money by Derek Quinlan, who payed excessive amounts for them (easy when its not your money) - according to RTE, is to go for sale at Christies Auction house in London. NAMA donated a work of art to the national gallery, The national gallery bought another painting and the rest are for sale.

There was a comment about how Dublin auctioneers were ‘disappointed’ that they didn’t receive the commission to sell the paintings. But, according to the report, the decision was reached by competitive tender.

Maybe they should drop their prices.


maybe the competitive tender had other criteria, like the ability to get the best price for the works in an international market?

Significant pre-emptive leaking here I would say. I think we’re being prepped for a ‘debt forgiveness on the unpaid loan balances because he co-operated in the disposals’ job.

Or else it is his advisors pushing for this?


Customary practice, eh?
And how long has NAMA been in business to establish such “customary practice”? :open_mouth:

Me. Hole.


Wasn’t there a famous tax case in the UK (taken by the revenue) where the defendant successfully proved that his lavish lifestyle (e.g. horses etc) were legitimately tax deductable ?


I’m not sure where to post this, so feel free to move it.


Referred to in MI’s paper review this morning but only Denis Brosnan namechecked.

That’s some quite good PR work by whoever is employed by his former partners to keep their name out of today’s Irish Times. Sounds like they don’t want the past dragged up. By any chance do they work for a crowd that sounds like Avensis !
