Injunction lifted in Milford Nursing Home dispute

The High Court has lifted an injunction restraining a builder from cutting off sewage services to Áras Uí Dómhnaill nursing home, which is currently in receivership.

The interim order was granted last week by Ms Justice Mary Laffoy against John O’Donnell, Ballyherrin, Kilmacrennan, Letterkenny,and Kilmac Formwork Ltd of the same address, to receiver Declan Taite.

Declan Taite said the defendants had claimed they had a 2007 agreement with the operator of the Áras Uí Dómhnaill nursing home in Milford that they would be paid €500,000 for providing a connection to a new sewage treatment plant they had built on adjoining lands.

That money had not been paid and they were now threatening to sever the connection, it was claimed.

This morning, that injunction was lifted.

Solicitor Darren Gibson, who represents Kilmac Formwork, says his clients have no intention of taking any immediate action, and they're seeking an amicable resolution.........
