The High Court has heard that lawyers for Console have not been able to locate its founder Paul Kelly or his wife Patricia to serve notice of injunctions.
Yesterday, the court approved various orders preventing the couple and Mr Kelly’s sister Joan McKenna from interfering with the suicide charity.
Following an independent review of the handling of Console’s finances in the wake of a HSE audit that revealed irregularities within the organisation, a number of injunctions were granted against the Kellys and Joan McKenna - a former director and Paul Kelly’s sister.
They included an order preventing them from accessing its bank accounts and credit cards.
Lawyers for the charity returned to the High Court this afternoon because they have not been able to find the Kellys to notify them of the injunctions.
The court heard a solicitor called to their home at Alexandra Manor in Clane, Co Kildare where the post box was overflowing and it appeared nobody had been there for some time.
Calls and emails also went unanswered.
Mr Justice Paul Gilligan agreed to consider the opening of an email sent to Mr Kelly’s account as service and the case is due back in court next week.
Joan McKenna was successfully served this afternoon.
