Businessman Paul McGlade, who last year acquired an interest in the Pygmalion,  a bar/restaurant and nightclub located on South William Street, claimed he was excluded from and unable to gain access to the premises by his fellow shareholders brothers Jay and Tim Bourke.

Arising out of his exclusion, Mr McGlade, along with two companies involved in the operation of the bar/restaurant - Fellerim Ltd and Lintrath Holdings Ltd  - brought a case was against Jonathan Jay Bourke, Leinster Road Rathmines, Dublin, Tim Bourke, Stable Lane Dun Laoghaire, and Pygmalion Public House Ltd.

He claimed that under the 2013 agreement he was to run the business.

Mr McGlade, of Upper Merrion Street, Dublin,had asked the court to make various orders including one that he be returned to the management of the business. He also sought injunctions restraining the Bourkes from preventing him entering or from changing the locks on the premises.

Yesterday, when the matter was mentioned before the court, Patricia Dillon SC for Mr McGlade told Mr Justice Paul Gilligan that the matter would "not be troubling the court" and could be "struck out" with no order. 

No details of any agreement between the parties were given in open court.
