A dispute between six siblings over their late mother's will cannot proceed before the High Court because one of the parties, a Catholic Priest, has been charged with drug offences in the United States.

Investigating officers claim they recovered half an ounce of methamphetamine, two scales and other materials used for packaging narcotics following a search of the vehicle.

Fr O'Leary is charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell and two counts of criminal use of drug paraphernalia and the criminal possession of a controlled substance and is currently remanded on bail.

In Ireland four of the accused siblings Nora Harpur, Barry O'Leary, Tadgh O'Leary and Marie O'Leary have brought unrelated High Court proceedings against both Fr Michael and their brother John O'Leary.

The action is aimed at setting aside the will of their late mother, Mrs Elizabeth O'Leary, who died in September 2014.

The four plaintiffs seek an order condemning a will made by the late Mrs O'Leary of Morehampton Road, Donnybrook, Dublin 4 in 2009 on grounds that she was not of sound mind when it was executed.

It is claimed that the family home was left to the defendants, while the residue of the estate was left to the other siblings.

It is also alleged that undue influence was exerted over the late Mrs O'Leary by the defendants when she was preparing and executing the 2009 will.

Fr O'Leary is expected to give evidence in defence of his sibling's claim.

Last week lawyers for Fr Michael asked Ms Justice Leonie Reynolds, who is in charge of the High Court's chancery division to adjourn the case as it was not possible for their client to attend court due to "a somewhat sensitive" matter.

Fr O'Leary, the judge was told, is charged with drug offences and is currently undergoing a 90-day residential drug rehabilitation programme in New York.

Despite their best efforts his lawyers have had very little communications with Fr O'Leary since his arrest and the rehabilitation programme won't be completed till mid-July.

His lawyers say he is hopeful that given his past good behaviour and having undergone treatment the US court will treat him with leniency if Fr O'Leary is convicted of the offences.

His lawyers are unclear about the terms of Fr O'Leary's bail, but believe that he would be unlikely be able to travel to attend at the High Court.

His lawyers add that despite being unable to get firm instructions they are concerned that Fr O'Leary is unlikely to be emotionally or psychologically ready to address the complex issues raised in the will dispute.

The case had been originally listed for hearing in January, and Fr O'Leary had attended court from America.

However, there was no judge available to hear the action and the case was fixed for June 19th.

Clearly, the case which had been fixed for hearing in advance could not go ahead as scheduled and a new date would have to be fixed, the judge said.
