O'Donnell children can stay in luxury home as judgment held
THE Supreme Court has reserved judgment on an appeal by the four adult children of a solicitor to prevent a bank getting possession of their luxury family home in Co Dublin.
The four children of litigator Brian O'Donnell – Blaise, Blake, Bruce and Alexandra O'Donnell – remain in the property at Gorse Hill, Vico Road, Killiney, pending the outcome of the five-judge court's decision.
The court did not indicate when the judgment will come.
The Bank of Ireland is seeking possession as part of its efforts to enforce a €70m judgment against parents Brian and Mary Pat O'Donnell.
A hearing of the bank's claim for damages against the occupiers also remains on hold pending the court's decision.
The Supreme Court will fix a date next week for the hearing of the appeal by Mr O'Donnell and his wife against a High Court order last September granting the bank's petition to adjudicate them bankrupt in Ireland.
