The Baron's back -- and looking trim

A svelte-looking Sean Dunne (left) was spotted in Dublin yesterday carrying what looked like documents as he strolled past the salubrious Merrion Hotel yesterday.

Casually dressed and sporting a trimmed-down frame, the so-called 'Baron of Ballsbridge' got into a car at the luxury hotel and drove away after thanking the concierge.

The former billionaire, who earned his moniker by spending millions buying property in Ballsbridge, south Dublin, is facing legal action in his adopted home of the US by the National Asset Management Agency (NAMA).

It is believed a hearing will take place in October as NAMA attempts to recover some of the €185m that the Irish courts ordered him to repay back in March.
