Bankrupt solicitor Brian O'Donnell has been ordered to pay all legal costs of his Court of Appeal challenge to a Bank of Ireland trespass order against him and his wife for remaining on at Gorse Hill.

Mr O'Donnell had earlier lost his court of appeal challenge and a hearing on costs sat at 4pm.

He sought to be allowed further time to lodge a Supreme Court appeal against the ruling, saying the rules had changed and that he would now not be allowed to lodge appeal papers before 28 days.

He said he might even require a stay of 12 weeks.

 However Judge Mary Finlay Geoghegan said she had been aware of the change on rules when she had earlier awarded Mr O'Donnell a stay of two weeks in which to lodge an appeal.
