A former Fianna Fail TD was adjudicated bankrupt in the High Court today.

Colm Keaveney, who lost his seat in Galway East in the last election, appeared in person before Ms Justice Caroline Costello.

He was one of around 35 other personal applications for bankruptcy before the court today.

The hearing was over in seconds when Ms Justice Costello said his papers were in order which means he now enters the bankruptcy process.

His assets now come under control of the court's official assignee, Chris Lehane.

Mr Keaveney was elected TD for the Labour Party in 2011 and became an independent before joining FF in 2013.
