Former Miss Ireland Pamela Flood and restaurateur Ronan Ryan may face jail over failing to quit €900k home Pamela Flood with husband Ronan Ryan

Former Miss Ireland Pamela Flood and her restaurateur husband Ronan Ryan may go to prison for failing to quit their €900,000 home after having agreed to hand it back to a bank which they owed €1.2million.

Judge Jacqueline Linnane, heard in the Circuit Civil Court Friday that the couple over the past nine years had not paid a cent off the mortgage on their Mount Prospect Avenue, Clontarf, home and had then only made a single payment in February last.

Driving license holders urged to ‘act now’ before Brexit

Driving license holders urged to ‘act now’ before Brexit The Road Safety Authority (RSA) has urged anyone living in Ireland who holds a UK driving license to exchange it for an Irish license before October 31 with the prospect of a No-Deal Brexit looming large. 

Judge Linnane was told today that not only was the couple still in the house but Mr Ryan (48) only days ago had sought and obtained a Protective Certificate under personal insolvency legislation which meant they could not be interfered with by anyone for 70 days.

Judge Linnane said she had now been told that the existence of the re-possession agreement and court order may have been kept from Judge Lambe, information that would undoubtedly have led to her refusing a Protective Certificate.

MPs vote to make same-sex marriage and abortion legal in Northern Ireland: Commons passes amendments to bring law into line with rest of the UK

MPs vote to make same-sex marriage and abortion legal in Northern Ireland: Commons passes amendments to bring law into line with rest of the UK MPs tonight voted to make same-sex marriage and abortion legal in Northern Ireland - despite fury that they are 'driving a coach and horses' through the devolution settlement. By a margin of 383 to 73 the Commons backed an amendment demanding the province be brought into line with the rest of the UK by October 21 - unless Stormont returns and decides otherwise. House of Commons votes to 383 to 73 approve New Clause 1 to the #NIExecutiveFormationBill.This requires UK secondary legislation to extend same-sex marriage to Northern Ireland unless an Executive is formed by 21 October 2019.

Mr Neuman, who appeared with Amoss Solicitors, was also granted leave to bring an application before Judge Linnane’s court seeking to set aside the Protective Certificate and allowing the Sheriff go ahead and evict Flood (47) and Ryan. He said the Protective Certificate did not cover Ms Flood who should have left the property on July 9.

Mr O’Shea, who appeared with David M. Turner Solicitors, said another firm of solicitors was now representing the couple. He confirmed to the court that both Ryan and Flood had, in good faith, agreed to hand over the keys to Tanager on the basis the bank would accept whatever proceeds it could achieve in a sale.

Touching the clouds: Ireland’s tallest building could be 34-storey skyscraper The planned development of a 34-storey hotel at Custom House Quay in the Cork docklands, touted to become the tallest building in Ireland upon completion, will create up to 1,200 jobs between construction and opening. 

The bank had agreed to wipe out the remaining debt owed by Ryan, who had taken out a €1.1million mortgage himself in 2006, and would not ask him to pay any legal costs mounting since 2016.  Ms Flood had been joined to the proceedings as a notice party as a result of her marriage to Ryan.

He said the consent and court order had been made in March last and the bank had given the couple, who have a family of young children, 12 weeks to make alternative accommodation arrangements for themselves.

Judge Linnane said that if the Protective Order, obtained literally at the last minute, was allowed to stand then barristers and solicitors would never be able to reach settlements in such cases in the future and there would be a plethora of applications to block re-possession orders.
