While Seán FitzPatrick was ruining the economy, his business partner daughter was living life to the full... | Mail Online

Long article in the Mail about the jetsetting lifestyle of Seanie Fitzpatrick's daughter, Sarah. Among all the concern over Facebook photos, there is this sailient nugget:

espite having no visible source of income, property records show how Sarah progressed from buying her own place (thanks to Anglo) to multimillion-euro property speculation with leading business figures (again thanks to Anglo).

Her first foray into property came in 2002 when she bought an apartment in Bray when she was just 17 – despite the fact that the legal age for buying and selling property is 18. The mortgage was provided by Anglo.
So, what exactly is the legality of buying property at 17?

Note, Oceanclub had originally posted the above but changed his/her mind
I'm going to err on the side of the right to privacy and remove the link to the Mail article.

P.
As people have already replied to the thread, I've decided to republish Oceanclub's original comments, under my name

Also here is one of teh pictures showing her living it up:

So what are you going to do about it?

Pull her hair the next time you see her in a Dublin nightclub?

Or are you going to go the whole hog, abduct her and hold her hostage before posting a beheading video on Youtube?

If not then shut up whinging about her you peasant.

I'm glad you think there should a law for the rich and a law for the poor, but fortunately I don't think this applies in a Republic.

As I said; in between all the Facebook nonsense, that is an important point.

And actually, my forefathers were dockers rather than peasants, I'll have you know.

Good find.Thats an interesting article, looks like Anglo was the family nestegg.
Do you think its illegal to buy a house at 17, do you think they could've finally broken the law( I won't hold my breath.:))

I think it very much applies in this Republic Ocean -( feeling a strange craving for a banana :)

Ah well, it shouldn't, but as you point out, we still have a gombeen mentality that thinks we should tug our collective forelocks to our betters.

It's very ironic that these people think _I'm_ a peasant.

It's not legal. If it's true then the regulator should get involved. The contract would be void as she wouldn't have capacity to consent. It should be noted that it would be the bank and specifically whoever allowed a 17 year old enter a contract who would be at fault as opposed to the child.

Given that there's no source for that piece other than the Mail, and given that the Mail's second page today is a detailed apology for their lies last week about Brian Lenihan, I would suggest it would be very foolish to rely on anything the paper says.

This is a paper that decides to run a story with 10 pictures of a 25 year old girl, where the only bit that could actually qualify as news is 3 sentences of unsourced accusation and the rest of which details how she likes U2. I'll bet you money right now her name isn't on the contract and that he father bought it for her. It's a pretty disgraceful invasion of privacy.

Agree this needs to be looked into further, and I doubt that the apartment is in her name.

No. You are banging on about some silly little rich missy who is living off Daddy Moneybags.

Are you going out to find out where Sarah Fitz and her friends go out and confront her yourself?

Do you plan to reduce her to tears and get her to apologise to the working class?

Better yet you could enroll her in the revolutionary army once you convince her of how evil Daddy really is:

Yeah I don't think we should go this road at all. What does the child know about how her father got the money. He's the one that needs to be brought to account. She should be left alone.

The mail have been doing a good job unearthing the crap which has infected out political system, but this kind of thing just undermines the good work.

I do realise that standards of education have dropped in Ireland lately. But in the first post in this thread, I specifically said that among the "Facebook nonsense", there is a salient point for discussion:

Her first foray into property came in 2002 when she bought an apartment in Bray when she was just 17 – despite the fact that the legal age for buying and selling property is 18.
Needless to say, the usual apologists want to gloss over this.
