Court date for woman claiming lover conned her
LEGAL action by a 60-year-old US woman who claims she was defrauded of millions by her younger Irish lover has been adjourned to a date in late April.
Elisa Rodino claims Thomas J Queally, who had been engaged to her, has stolen about $4m (€3m) of her money – a large portion of which was lodged by him into a bank in Ennis, Co Clare.
She also claims that Mr Queally, who she has not seen for months, had been living a double life and had another fiancee while engaged to her.
Mr Queally (46), of Sherman Avenue, Yonkers, New York, and originally from Lahaknock, Kilmaley, Co Clare, denies the claims.
