Boy (5) awarded €8,000 after embassy limo crashed into family car

The Argentinean embassy has agreed to pay a five-year-old Dublin boy €8,000 damages for injuries he received when an embassy vehicle crashed into his family car.

Barrister Bernadette Kirby, counsel for Jack Mulvaney, Killinarden Estate, Tallaght, Dublin, told the Circuit Civil Court that he had suffered bruising to his lower abdomen in the accident.

Ms Kirby said Jack, aged only three at the time, was a passenger in his father Greg’s car when the embassy vehicle, driven by chauffeur Peter Fallon, drove in front of it., Dublin 4, had offered Jack a settlement of €8,000 which she was recommending to the court.

Approving the offer, Judge Deery agreed to direct payment out of €500 to Jack’s mum to allow her bring him on a holiday to her native Philippines.
