Efforts to offload assets belonging to businessman Jim Mansfield are getting underway.

A receiver was yesterday appointed to a number of Mr Mansfield’s companies: including Weston Aerodrome, six apartment blocks near Dublin's Citywest Hotel and Palmerstown House Estate in Co Kildare.

Mr Mansfield is the third well-known developer to be placed into receivership by NAMA in recent weeks, after Paddy Kelly and Derek Quinlan.
