The disgraced CEO of suicide bereavement charity Console was picked up by gardai for his own personal safety, it has emerged.

Paul Kelly had not been sighted since leaving Console’s office in Celbridge, Co Kildare on Tuesday afternoon.

A previous sitting of the High Court last Friday heard that he had not been in contact with his solicitors for a number of days, and concerns had been raised about his personal safety.

It has now been established that Mr Kelly was picked up by gardai in south Dublin on Thursday evening.                                       

Officers had become aware of fears over his well-being, and detained him near the Dun Laoghaire area.

He was brought to a garda station in the capital where he was assessed by a medical professional, before being taken into care.

A source stated that the garda matter was solely in relation to his well-being.
