Action to repossess €1m former luxury home of Grainne Seoige adjourned


PROCEEDINGS by KBC Bank against TV star Grainne Seoige and her ex-husband Stephen Cullinane over their former home in Co Wicklow have been adjourned.

The Up For The Match presenter shared the luxury home known as Rock Valley in Kilmacanogue, Co Wicklow, with her former husband, Stephen Cullinane.

The pair separated in 2010 after eight years of marriage, and their plans to settle down in the house never flourished.

Earlier this year, KBC Bank issued proceedings against the couple and the matter was before the County Registrar at Wicklow Circuit Court this morning.

The details as to why the bank was seeking repossession of the property have never been revealed.

The Crime Call host bought the luxury home with her husband for more than €1m in 2002.

At the call-over of the court list this morning, legal representatives for KBC Bank asked that the matter against Ms Seoige (41) and Mr Cullinane be adjourned generally with liberty to re-enter the matter.

Wicklow County Registrar Mary Delahunty agreed that the matter be adjourned generally with liberty to re-enter.

Neither Ms Seoige nor her former husband were in court for the brief hearing.

The RTE star and former All Ireland Talent Show presenter has been in a relationship Leon Jordaan, a rugby coach from South Africa, since late 2011.

They met while Grainne was filming her Reality Bites documentary, Grainne’s Modern Life, at his rugby club in Navan.

Grainne previously said that Leon “understands” a west of Ireland girl like her.

“He gets me. What I love about him is his sense of kindness and fun.”

The Herald previously reported how the pair got engaged in 2013.

They kept the proposal a secret for a number of months to enjoy it by themselves, but threw an engagement bash in April 2014 at popular nightclub Lillies Bordello.
