The Indo unashamedly showing their tabloid side

Revealed: Bankrupt O'Donnells living in plush home in picture postcard 'Garden of England'

Quote:
Two years after being forced out of Gorse Hill by Bank of Ireland, former solicitor and billionaire Brian O'Donnell is now living in a large farmhouse in the lush countryside of the 'Garden of England'.
The rented property is in the stockbroker and banker belt on the Kent-Surrey border. Surrounded by plains of fertile land, the house called East Haxted is accessed by an iron gate and a gravel path.
Many of the houses and shops in the environs are historic Tudor buildings, like something from a picture postcard.
But Brian O'Donnell did not want to talk about his bankruptcy battle and the sale of the famous Gorse Hill mansion when the Irish Independent called by.
A sleek black 4.2litre Jaguar XK8 car does not look out of place parked on the gravel of the East Haxted farmhouse.

Reads like a "good on them sticking it to BOI - they're back where they belong" to me

Solicitor Brian O’Donnell, who along with his wife Mary Pat O'Donnell was embroiled in a high-profile legal battle with Bank of Ireland over a €71m debt, has said he is now "debt free, out of retirement and has reactivated his real estate investment and development business".

Mr O'Donnell was formally discharged from bankruptcy at a sitting of the High Court today.

...

In a statement issued through his son Blake O'Donnell's UK-based law firm today, Mr O’Donnell Sr said "during his forced retirement from business" his energies have been "largely devoted to managing the Irish legal process" as well as dealing with "dozens of lawyers and other professionals".

He added his business activities will focus on "the UK and international markets" and that he has "no present intention to conduct future business in Ireland".

Mr O’Donnell Sr said he will be joining his son’s law firm.

'' out of retirement''
I guess that's one way of viewing it.
