yesterday rejected an attempted by the children of Brian and Mary Patricia O'Donnell to stop Bank of Ireland and the receivers taking possession of the house.

Ann O’Loughlin reports in the Irish Examiner that Mr Justice Brian McGovern said Mr O’Donnell’s occupation of the house at Gorse Hill, Vico Road, Killiney, Dublin, was part of a device to frustrate previous court orders granting the receiver possession.

He also rejected a claim by Mr O’Donnell’s son Blake that his parents had a right of residence, granted to them by their children.

The receiver, Tom Kavanagh, had a right to vacant possession on foot decisions by the High and Supreme Courts and the O’Donnell parents were not entitled to possession.

“This is a device for the purpose of frustrating decisions of this court and of the Supreme Court”, Mr Justice McGovern said.

Members of the media and the new Land League are both expected to gather outside the gates as the day progresses to see whether that order will be complied with.

The case is due to return to court tomorrow if the family has not left the house.
