Sean Dunne declared bankrupt - in America

The developer Sean Dunne has declared himself bankrupt in the United States, where Nama has been pursuing him in the civil courts over a debt of more than €150m.

The bankruptcy process is faster in the US than in Ireland, and debtors who have been entirely honest with the courts can expect a discharge of their debts within one year or so.
