O'Gara fails in Dartmouth bid


Businessman Noel O’Gara has failed to secure a High Court order setting aside a settlement agreement concerning ownership of Dartmouth Square, Dublin.

Mr O’Gara had claimed that he and his wife Naramon had been “conned” and “blackmailed” into signing the agreement last July which involved them handing over a lease and title deeds for the square, due to be offered for sale at an Allsops auction next Tuesday.

Ms Justice Mary Finlay Geoghegan rejected Mr O’Gara’s application to set aside the settlement.
