O'Donnell looking to cross-examine receiver

O'Donnell looking to cross-examine receiver

The legal battle over solicitor Brian O’Donnell’s Gorse Hill mansion in South Dublin is set to return to the courts this morning.

The solicitor, who owes Bank of Ireland more than €70m, wants to be allowed to cross-examine the receiver in the case.

In the High Court last Thursday, Mr Justice Brian McGovern reserved judgment in respect of Bank of Ireland’s application to have a trespass injunction granted against solicitor Brian O’Donnell over the Gorse Hill house on Killiney’s Vico Road.

He also deferred his decision over two applications lodged by Mr O’Donnell.

The solicitor wants to be allowed to cross-examine both the receiver in the case, Tom Kavanagh, and a representative of the Bank of Ireland.

He claimed that facts had been put to the court that were not agreed, and said he and his wife were concerned about the receiver bringing in a security company.
