Jackie Lavin repossession case adjourned

Action by receivers on Killarney property suspended due to High Court proceedings

An application by receivers to repossess the Killarney mountain home associated with the businesswoman Jackie Lavin and her partner Bill Cullen has been adjourned again - because proceedings by Ms Lavin on the matter are before the High Court.

Solicitor for Ms Lavin, Padraig O'Connell, told the Circuit Civil Court in Killarney that Ms Lavin was also seeking "certain relief orders" from the High Court.

Mr O’Connell said that Ms Lavin was asserting her ownership and was fully contesting the attempt to repossess the house in the heart of the Killarney National Park.

Repossession application


The application for repossession and to remove Ms Lavin from the mansion Killegy House, formerly owned by her partner Bill Cullen and set at the foot of Mangerton mountain, has been adjourned several times in the past twelve months.

Receivers for Glencullen Properties Ltd, the company formerly owned by Mr Cullen, have been seeking to remove the businesswoman from the house..

The house, with landscaped gardens and tennis court, was built by Mr Cullen.

The court was told in July 2014 when the matter first arose at the Circuit Civil Court in Tralee that Ms Lavin had been a tenant of the house.

Receivers had sought her removal in late 2012 and a dispute went to the Private Residential Tenancies Board (PRTB). In February 2014 the PRTB ordered Ms Lavin to vacate Killegy House.

The receivers were seeking an order pursuant to Section 124 of the Residential Tenancies Act regarding the tenancy of Killegy House.

Judge Thomas James O’Donohoe agreed to the adjournment to a Civil Court in May.
