Graham Dwyer quit as director of firm after bail was refused

Dwyer had been appointed a director of A&D Wejchert & Partners Ltd on June 1, 2006, as his career took off at the firm in Dublin’s Lower Baggot Street.

But following his arrest on October 17, 2013 and his appearance in court just 24 hours later on a charge of murdering Elaine O’Hara, Dwyer brought a succession of applications to the courts for bail.

He was denied bail by the High Court in November and it has now emerged his stint as a director and partner of A&D Wejchert was terminated on December 2, 2013.

Company documents reveal his seven-year stint as a director of the company was formally ended by the lodging of the required B10 form with the Companies Office.

Dwyer’s signature is not included on the form.

A special resolution of the company on the same date decided the 100 ordinary shares of €1.269 held by Dwyer would be redeemed and cancelled.

Dwyer later unsuccessfully applied to the Supreme Court and once again in 2014 to the High Court for bail, but both applications were rejected by the courts in the face of strong garda opposition.

He remained in custody since late 2013.

Retained profits at the A&D Wejchert architectural and engineering firm for 2014 of €480,879 are down fractionally on the preceding year (€482,313).

The company has a string of blue chip clients, including Irish Life, government departments, major hospitals, third-level colleges and high-profile shopping centres.

Cash in hand for last year amounted to €546,915, compared to a figure of €782,526 in 2013.

Even though he was working full-time with A&D Wejchert, Dwyer registered a business in his own name on October 10, 2011. Daylight Consultancy was registered with the Companies Registration Office and the nature of its business was declared by Dwyer on the registration form to be “93.05: Consultancy Services Daylight Sunlight and Shadows”.

He listed the principal place of business as his home address, 6 Kerrymount Close, Foxrock, Co Dublin.

The company name was registered just weeks before he bought two prepaid Nokia mobile phones at the O2 shop in Grafton Street, Dublin.

They become known as the so-called Slave and Master phones and were later found in Vartry Reservoir.
