Strokestown family given month to leave property





The Strokestown family whose property was at the centre of a controversial eviction last December have been given until November 12th to vacate their home at Falsk following a High Court ruling last Friday.

  Justice Senan Allen ruled that KBC Bank was entitled to an injunction meaning siblings Michael Anthony, David and Geraldine McGann must leave their family home, pending the outcome of the ongoing dispute.

  In his ruling, Justice Allen said KBC had executed a valid possession order over the property at Falsk and that the McGanns where therefore trespassers on the property.

  Representing the McGann family, David Browne BI, said that his clients would appeal the decision to the Court of Appeal and asked for the vacate order to be stayed.

  There were no objections raised to this from the KBC legal team and Justice Allen placed a stay on the order until noon on Tuesday, November 12th.
