Bid to secure sale of nursing home

A bid to secure the sale of a nursing home at the centre of a legal row could ultimately result in a €1.9m judgment order obtained last year against the minister for health and several others being discharged.

A legal application aimed at securing the sale of the 54-bed Greenhills nursing home in Co Tipperary was mentioned briefly before Mr Justice John Cooke yesterday before being adjourned to Oct 15.

In Feb 2012, judgment for €1.9m was entered at the Commercial Court on consent against James Reilly, South Shore Rd, Rush, Co Dublin, and four others jointly and severally under a settlement of proceedings over an alleged contract to buy the home.

The four others were Paul Kelly, Mountjoy Square, Dublin; Dilip Jondhale, Johnswell Rd, Kilkenny; Ciarán Flanagan, Inchicore Terrace South, Dublin 8; and Fine Gael councillor Anne Devitt, Swords, Co Dublin.

A stay on execution of judgment was granted until Apr 30, 2012, and the five also consented to indemnify the plaintiffs concerning any liability to Bank of Ireland under a co-ownership agreement relating to the home.

The plaintiffs are Michele Mellotte, Tullamore, Co Offaly; Orla Higgins, Ranelagh, Dublin; John Caulfield, Clontarf, Dublin; John McGreevy, Clontarf; John Whately, Dundalk, Co Louth; Garry Smyth, Dundrum, Dublin; Tom Murphy, Oldtown, Co Dublin; and Michael Morris, Celbridge, Co Kildare.
