Supreme Court rules on Tory house demolition

four courts

The Supreme Court has dismissed an appeal by the company that formerly owned Tory Island's Hotel against a High Court ruling that it was responsible for demolishing a house in the island belonging to film-maker Neville Presho.

Three judges ruled the company could not appeal as it has been dissolved. They ruled that Presho be immediately paid 46000 euro damages, lodged in court.

The court will consider in January whether to allow an appeal from Patrick Doohan, former owner of the company, to go ahead.
