Osmond Kilkenny Jnr, son of showbiz "accountant to the stars", Ossie Kilkenny, has voluntarily vacated a €500,000 Dublin property, partly left to him in his granny's will.

It came in the face of court proceedings to remove him, Judge John O'Connor was told in the Circuit Civil Court.

Michelle Collins, of O'Brien Redmond Solicitors, had sought vacant possession of 6 Balally Drive, Dundrum, on behalf of eight beneficiaries of the late Ann P Kilkenny's estate, including Mr Kilkenny Jnr.

Ossie Kilkenny Snr, son of Ann Kilkenny, had been removed by the High Court five years ago as executor of his mother's will on the grounds of "inordinate and inexcusable delay" in executing it.

Mr Justice Paul McDermott made the order on December, 7, 2015, and had appointed Ms Collins as legal personal representative in the estate of Ann Kilkenny. She had applied in that capacity to the Circuit Civil Court for injunctive relief against Mr Kilkenny Jnr, directing he vacate the house. She also looked for an order for sale.

Ms Collins, in applications before Judge Jacqueline Linnane and Judge O'Connor, told the court Mr Kilkenny had been bequeathed a one-eighth share of No 6 and his father had been named executor.

Following the death of Ann Kilkenny in April 2010, the eight beneficiaries agreed among themselves the property would not be sold due to lack of activity in the property market, but that Mr Kilkenny Jnr should enter the property on a caretaker basis.

It was agreed Mr Kilkenny would leave the house on request, make it available for viewings if necessary and, if he failed to comply with the wishes of the other beneficiaries, rent would become payable by him.
