Owner ‘devastated’ as bank seizes Kinnitty Castle

A €12.6m deal for the sale of the hotel collapsed in 2006 and led to two years of legal wrangling which delayed putting the property back on the market.
The Hanly Group paid a €1.26m deposit to secure the hotel in 2006, but the deal fell through and went to the commercial court when the deposit was not returned. But a settlement of €750,000 was made to hotelier Alan Hanly, which ended the two-year battle.
It is not worth €2M when you include all the work that needs to be done.
Eh, it might be posted on another website but libel is libel buddy. We can be sued even if we’re quoting it. I’ve sniped you’re post but left the last line which pretty much sums up your opinion less the libel.
Also, the property now for sale at €9.8million:

In an affidavit, Mr Ryan said he bought the hotel in 1994 and mortgaged the property to IIB bank in 2004 for €5,871,000. He owes the bank more than €6 million. He said a deal to sell the property for €12.6 million in 2006 had fallen through, but he had been trying to sell the property since then and had agreed to a tendering process to conclude on November 27th.
He said the hotel was valued at €9 million and offers of €10 million by a German consortium as well as other bids of €8 million and $12 million were made.
A “damaging newspaper article” of November 11th had incorrectly stated Kinnitty Castle had been sold for €11.6 million in 2006, he said. It also stated two estate agents had said the hotel could achieve a greatly reduced price between 30 per cent and 50 per cent less, which suggested the asking price was as low as €5.8 million. As a result, he had no option but to withdraw from the tendering process.
