Film producer Julie Le Brocquy awarded €11,000 against architect

Claim by architect John Pat Colclough for alleged outstanding fees of €9,770 dismissed

Film producer Julie Le Brocquy has been awarded just over €11,000 against an architect who, a judge said, had failed to provide her with "a reasonable standard of service".

Judge Jacqueline Linnane also dismissed a claim by the architect, John Pat Colclough, against Ms Le Brocquy for alleged outstanding professional fees and expenses amounting to €9,770.

Barrister Padraic Lyons had told the court that Ms Le Brocquy had retained Mr Colclough, formerly of Millbrook Hall, Abbeyleix, Co Laois, to advise her and prepare a planning application for a new rental property beside her home on Eglinton Road, Dublin 4.

Mr Lyons told the court she had already paid Mr Colclough more than €10,000 with regard to his services.
