A Limerick businessman has settled his High Court action against Jedward and their parents over an alleged merchandising agreement.

Patrick Noonan had claimed €625,000 losses, mostly arising from the design and production of Jedward wristbands, jigsaws, board games and websites.

Identical twins John and Edward Grimes (26), from Dublin and known as Jedward, were in court with their estranged parents John Grimes and Susanna Condron when the confidential settlement was announced.

Jedward made it to the finals of The X Factor in 2009, represented Ireland twice in the Eurovision Song Contest and also appeared in Celebrity Big Brother.


On the second day of the case yesterday, Patrick O'Reilly SC, for Mr Noonan, said the case had been compromised on confidential terms.

The judge adjourned the matter to December 12 to enable the terms to be concluded.
