Fourteen months have passed since the eviction of the McGann siblings and their subsequent reoccupation of their family farm.
The dramatic events in Co Roscommon proved to be a lightning rod for factions opposed to repossessions.
Hundreds took to the streets of Strokestown to protest and there were arson attacks on a number of branches of the lender involved, KBC Bank.
But the bank hasn't gone away - and neither have the family's problems.
KBC has argued that the rule of law is at stake and will today seek to progress a motion in the High Court to have Michael Anthony McGann and his siblings, David and Geraldine, all in their 50s and 60s, jailed for contempt.
The prospect of them being taken into custody and losing their home for a second time now looms large.
But so too does the potential for further protest as, despite the passage of time, the anti-repossession groups have not gone away either.
KBC and its predecessor IIB Homeloans began pursuing possession of the home and farm in the townland of Falsk in 2008 following the failure of its owner, Michael Anthony McGann, to pay his mortgage.
According to court filings, no payment has been made on the property since February 2014 and the bank is now owed more than €430,000, including €190,000 in arrears.
Nevertheless, there was a huge outpouring of sympathy after footage emerged of distressing scenes as security personnel removed people from the property on December 11, 2018, as the bank sought to enforce a possession order.
Five days later, a group of vigilantes attacked guards at the property, causing serious injuries. There is no suggestion the McGanns themselves were involved. Gardaí took control of the house and yard, but did not immediately tell the bank when they were done with the crime scene.
This gave the McGanns a window of opportunity to reoccupy the property and they have remained there since.
The bank considered taking further legal action almost immediately, but delayed doing so at the request of gardaí, who wanted to progress a criminal investigation and allow tensions to ease.
But by the summer KBC was back in court.
The bank eventually secured an injunction last October restraining the McGanns from trespassing on the farm.
They were given until November 12 to leave, but KBC says they have not done so.
If successful, KBC's attachment and committal application could result in the siblings held in custody until the alleged contempt has been "purged".
Local gardaí have already told the siblings they will have no option but to arrest them if so ordered by the court.
At this stage it is unclear whether the McGanns will co-operate with the process.
While some supporters were present when the matter was listed in the High Court last week, there was no appearance by any of the siblings.
This was not terribly surprising in respect of Michael Anthony McGann, who made no appearance when KBC sought the injunction. Written arguments opposing the application were submitted on his behalf - and were described by Mr Justice Senan Allen as pseudo-legal "mumbo jumbo".
Letters were also circulated to parties in the case, purportedly on his behalf, quoting maritime law and containing fingerprints and hair samples.
His brother and sister were represented in the injunction proceedings and unsuccessfully fought the bank.
Although they did not own the property they were affected by the proceedings as David had lived there since his birth in 1958 and Geraldine still lived there occasionally.
But it now appears relations between them and their solicitors Carter Anhold & Co have broken down to such an extent that the firm is seeking to come off record.
Last Monday, Ms Justice Leonie Reynolds heard a registered letter informing them of the law firm's motion was "returned to sender". The family, it would appear, have turned elsewhere for help.
Around 50 people, including local supporters and members of anti-repossession groups Anti-Corruption Taskforce and the National Land League gathered in Falsk last November to support the family.
Similar numbers would be expected if gardaí are dispatched to arrest the siblings.
Members of both groups have been involved in the disruption of court sittings.
In 2016, injunctions were granted against two members of Anti-Corruption Taskforce restraining them from picketing the home of a district court judge, as well as the judge's wife's business premises.
Another group present last November was the Letterkenny-based Common Law Information Centre, which fights what it describes as "unlawful evictions".
The group insists it does not give legal advice, but provides "lawful information so people can help themselves".
Asked if there would be resistance to the latest move, spokesman Tom Dignam told the Irish Independent: "We are keeping our cards close to our chest. We are not going to disclose anything. We are still supporting the McGanns, but we are not going to let anybody know what our plans are."
The current situation might well have been avoided if Michael Anthony McGann had followed through on an agreement to vacate the property in 2016. According to court papers, he changed his mind as his brother refused to go.
With both sides so deeply entrenched, whatever happens next it is difficult to see the Strokestown standoff ending in an orderly fashion.
