The High Court has made a judgment against former Fianna Fail Councillor Gerard Killally and former Offaly football manager Richard Connor for €4.6m.
It follows an action taken by National Irish Bank which, the court heard, is owed that amount by the two men.
Neither of the men were in court today, but the court was informed that they would not be defending the action.
Mr Connor has already admitted making secret profits from land deals in Offaly.
His co-accused, Mr Killaly, claimed he did not disclose the profits to his partners because he was legally advised there was no obligation to do so.

Another FFer covers himself in glory in the High Court. :rolleyes:

Killally is trying to put his solicitor in the frame for "incorrect" legal advice but she is defending herself rigourously, seems kind strange Connor is not taking part in this action, guess the guys are no longer on good terms.

Biffo must be cringing every time Killally's name comes up, his former running mate crapping all over him.

Nah, this is standard in FF at this stage, he's well used to it. Sure he did not even blink when ahern was spinning his fairytales the tribunal.

So what will Killally do? Does he have no choice but to file for bankruptcy? I doubt he can sell his house and even if he did he wouldn't get what he'd want for it.

Or will he be driving around in a 2010 reg Audi sports next year, seemingly unaffected by this?

He has friends in the right places. The effect will be minimal

He has shut down the auctioneering (conning) business, another poster on here put up a pic of the ranch and advised it is sinking into the bog it was built on.

Given how he has treated some investors in the locale you would have to say it is bankruptcy, unless he has family with very deep pockets.

His own bills for legal representation must be substantial and there are probably a few more lawsuits lining up, doubt if Biffo is going to be giving legal advice, more like fup off and stay fupped off.

Next year it will probably be a Celtic donkey n cart, he can look at pics of Audi sport jobs on the internet.

in 2002:
Poll topper Brian Cowen said the end of an election marks a time of mixed emotions. For those elected it was a time of great joy and for those unfortunate not to be elected a time of great sadness.



While commiserating with the unsuccessful candidates Brian had a special word for Charlie Flanagan. He had worked with Charlie for the past 15 years and commended him for carrying on the tradition started by his father...He had a particular word of praise for his Offaly colleague Gerard Killally for his magnificent display and with whom Fianna Fáil would not have won three seats.

...Gerard Killally said he was honoured and happy to have played his part in ensuring his three Fianna Fail colleagues had been re-elected. He was also pleased with the 6,000 he had ended up with saying this was due in no small part to the effort put in by those people who had campaigned on his behalf.

I presume with regards to his assumed huge costs he will simply follow his party lead and stiff the taxpayer, ala the Class Act.

The position is not the same as the lovely Beverley against whom RTE took an action, Killally has had to employ private solicitors to defend himself, not sure if he is on legal aid, as such his debts are private and nothing to do with the State, so far.

All in all his solicitors made a commercial decision whether or not to act on his behalf and it is up to them to collect their outstanding fees, cannot see Biffo/State riding to the rescue.

This guy is well and truly fupped.

This company Killally was involved in "Plaza Developments Ltd" Does anyone know of any developments that they actually did, ie did they do any work for the local county councils

Surprise there has been no mention of Killally appearing today before Circuit court and pleading guilty to charges in connection with his nefarious activity. Sentence has been put back by Judge Tony Hunt until November.

Former FF councillor admits theft - The Irish Times - Tue, Jul 10, 2012

"Before Judge Anthony Hunt at Mullingar Circuit Court, Mr Killally pleaded guilty to three counts of theft and one of forging a letter.

He will be sentenced in November.

He was remanded on bail and his passport has been returned to him to allow him take a two week family holiday at the end of the month, but it must be returned to gardaí when he returns."

I find it hard to understand the holiday bit.
With anyone else, they would be whisked away on an all expenses paid holiday to the Mountjoy Hotel.

Like a lot of political downfalls, its not the original mistake that is the problem.
It is the continuing digging that leads to ruin.​
