6 JUN 2019 —
Dear Mr Gavin,
I am writing to you about your recent email to the Office of the Ombudsman concerning your solicitor.
The role of the Ombudsman is to examine complaints from members of the public who believe that they have been unfairly treated by certain public service providers. The public service providers whose actions may be examined by the Ombudsman include Government Departments, Local Authorities, the Health Service Executive (HSE) (and public hospitals and health agencies acting on behalf of the HSE), publically funded third-level education bodies and private nursing homes.
The Ombudsman’s remit does not extend to examining complaints about individual solicitors.
I regret that we cannot be of assistance to you at this time.
Office of the Ombudsman
Do you consider the Law Society of Ireland
public service providers. The law society of Ireland IGNORE the Fraudulent activities
of the solicitors mentioned in this file https://t.co/4aZSZCUA9N
Robert B Marren, Tony Henry and Peter D. Jones were all reported to the Law Society of Ireland but they find no fault in their unprofessional activities.
Currently Gearoid Geraghty Solicitor Ballinasloe holds Michael Gavin’s case to council file RANSOM until his fee for Not carrying written instructions is Paid. We are told locally Gearoid Geraghty is fond of the drink.
How about An Garda Siochana Do you Elizabeth Culhaneconsider the An Garda Siochana public service providers. They were informed of the fraudulent activities of the above mentioned Solicitors as were local politicians and the office of the DPP.
Recently Lawrence McManus 083 113 3608 Pettigo, Co Donegal phoned demanding that, Eileen Linney hand over the keys to the house in Dundonnell, Taughmaconnell, Roscommon where Michael Gavin RIP lived all his life.Lawrence McManus claims to be a mediator and told Eileen Linney that he has a right by law to the keys and he proposes to sell the house in March 2019.
Donal Jackson from Athlone who met with Lawrence Mc Manus formed the impression that McManus is/was a member of the IRA.
Mc Manus was expelled from Sinn Fein but we are unsure why.
In a recorded conversation between Lawrenace McManus and Derek McCabe https://youtu.be/B8dc9T94iVs
Monkesland Athlone. McManus claims he has the agreement of all the family to sell the house in Dundonnell, Taughmaconell and claims he has filed the necessary paperwork with the district court. This is a lie because Eileen Linney did not sign any agreement with Lawrence McManus nor did I ever meet with him.
WHY IS THIS NOT INVESTIGATED???
Below is a comment made on petition
Utterly disgraceful that corrupt solicitors, guards and the ombudsmen refuse to investigate the corrupt dealings of these people that robbed michael Gavin of his home, health and farm. These people MUST be sacked, debarred and removed from office permanently. Justice for Michael Gavin now !!!!!
The following instruction were given to GERAGHTY January 2019

Currently I am receiving threatening phone calls from a person by the name of Lawrence McManus from Pettigo, Co. Donegal Mobile No 083 113 3608. He claims to be an appointed mediator. He is currently using the farm lands at Dundonnell. He has phoned me demanding the keys to the house and states by law he has the rights to the keys. He stated that he intends to sell the home in March 2019. He claimed to local person in a recorded phone conversation that all the family are in agreement to sell the home and he has filed signed agreement with the district courts. This is a lie as I did not sign any agreement with Lawrence McManus nor did I meet with him.
Their Solicitor Robert B Marren has ignored us numerous times when my late brother and I informed him that
“We wish to advise you that as and from the date you received and have withheld funds from each of us an interest rate of 8% per Month is accruing to the benefit of our accounts plus expenses because of your failure to make good on our legitimate claim.”

“Well written account of the injustice perpetrated against an innocent man
aided and abetted by the Irish legal profession to steal this elderly man’s
money from him. The solicitor should be charged and jailed.‖
“This is a very sad case of an elderly man being cheated by the law. It’s very
detailed and definitely worth a read, cases like this abound in Ireland, where
people will behave in truly shameful manner where land is concerned.‖

depend very much on where you reside on the social scale #vinb‖
―This story highlights the blue-shirt mentality of current regime. People
should read it and stand up against FG cowards and Bullies.‖
―This type of practice is unacceptable and must undergo a radical review and
renewal. Irish people, be they farmers or academics (one doesn’t exclude the
other) trust these kind of professions to represent their clients’ interests. In this
case it seems like that trust was exploited for personal gain.‖
―This is Disgusting Travesty of Justice these Solicitors should be disbarred
from Practicing for this ABUSE of their Position they are Traitors to our
People Greedy disgusting Cretins who should be arrested & Jailed for their
terrible ABUSE of this Man! WE are watching from Afar & We promise you
we will get Justice for this Man!‖

apathy. And let hell skelp it into ye.‖

corruption at its best under the law‖
―The Lawless Society are hell bent on benefitting themselves through
legalised theft. Hiding themselves behind the Law and corrupting it, yet they
cannot be tried for their crimes, because they run the courts.‖
How shocking.! This poor gentleman suffering as a result of white collar corruption. The law Society are self regulating and all you can do is expose this into a public arena where they are named and shamed! It’s a total travesty and hopefully this nasty Solicitor will be exposed to such a degree where it cannot be ignored!
It’s the only way Society can change. These individuals have been protected in the past, but they should not continue in being allowed to be a self regulating body. There should be an independent body / group set up who monitors complaints made against these practicing Solicitors who engage in lies, fraud and corruption!.
The Solicitor Marren should have gone before a Judge instead of squandering the Dept. of Agriculture Grants and favouring the wishes of Michael Gavin’s devious sisters Kathleen o Keefe and Anne Sanford.
Its time to start executing solicitors barristers and judges that flout the law and rob people of their hard earned money. If any of the above steal 10,000 they should get jail, If any of the above steal 100,000 they should be castrated first then jailed for life, If any of the above steals land of an elderly man they should get instant death by 1000 cuts. This is the law of my land I don’t know about yours.
No Man has the Right to Blaggard another in this way, educated or not!
This is disgraceful to do this to an old man. Take away the license of the solicitor Marren, he’s corrupt!
Every corrupt solicitor in this country should be exposed
Solicitors steal all of the time We Are the Capital Country of White Collar Crime why because its almost impossible to prove and when it’s proven you don’t go to jail just give be the money back
This should be investigated fully
Solicitors are a crowd of gurriers, cheating people out of money and as usual, dishonest thieving bastards.
I hate bullying and injustice.
Yes time to wise up,the one thing that scares them is the truth .
Greed is disgusting.
It’s a shocking story.
Best of luck Michael, sickening what the money men can get away with in this country.
It’s high time this so called Republic takes a stand for the vulnerable.
This is fraud return Micheal his money
Marcelo Fabián Varas
Because I really care what injustice does to the elder people!
Leif Gunnar Toth
Corruption in the courtroom! From solicitors to barristers to judges ! First hand of it !
This is all criminal !
patrick quinn Quinn
Solicitors greedy feckers
This system needs MASSIVE changes
its so unfair
It is so wrong. How dare that solicitor do what he has and is still doing. He should be prosecuted and jailed for what he is doing. He should be suspended fromantic practising till this is sorted and because of the age of Michael, it should be seen as urgent.
I am signing because I am sick of all the fraud that is beenperpetrated against the ordinary working class people of Ireland by the so called ruling classes and the especially the Judiciary / legal profession.
Coz the man is right
We need to be courage in the face of any kind of abuse. This desperately needs to be exposed.
Too much corruption in Ireland today, that is from the top down.
Elderly people have rights
To agree it what needs doing
Because it’s disgusting how our land an so called leaders lol try an treat us !! This man was never income dependant ffs it’s disgraceful he worked all his life for excuse “wankers” til take the piss the state is a fecking JOKE !!!! Xx
This is wrong.
Because what they are doing is wrong.
Self interest at its worst in this corrupt country
I had dealings with incompetent and lying solicitors.
The level of corruption in the UK and Ireland is disgusting! It has to STOP
I’ve had the bad experience of dealing with a corrupt solicitor in the past. I hate to see anyone else go through the same thing.
Anne Marie Lankester
The law recognises Elder Abuse so it must enable victims to seek redress and prosecute such fraudsters – or why bother to create the law in the first place?
White collar crime is still crime. The legal profession have alot to answer for.
I despise people being taken advantage of.
A full investigation needs to be carried out by An Garda Siochana into the behaviour of solicitor Robert B Marren Mullingar
These very crooked Solicators must not be allowed to defraud any more elderly people and behave like the crooks they really are.Thinking themselves above the law and behaving like the criminals most of know they are.If they weren’t criminals in disguise they would be the HUNTED.
Dreadful behaviour of a solicitor who in guise is a crook
This is a shocking case of corruption on the part of Solicitor in attempting to steal this family home!!
Justice needs to win out here and questions need answers
Disgusted with the underhanded the way this mans home is been dealt with.
This is not right
How sad that a once lovely country has become so evil…
june mc mahon
How dare the solicitor abuse the family that put trust in them.
Besr of luck Michael!!
The madness has to stop
So it is OK to steal from the elderly? This solicitor is a not a solicitor. He is a thief and needs prosecuted
Too many crooks in this business! Time they were all held accountable.
Because we need to tackle any sort of corruption in Ireland
Tommy O Connor
That’s yet another crooked solicitor’s ways exposed. We all know there’s plenty more legal scum like him.
Corrupt people need to know they will be exposed for the crooks they are
The corruption in this country has to be stoped by the Irish people for all the people and shameful to treat Michael in this way
I am supporting this petition because these poor people not getting any help and the worry and distress is not right
Corrupt legal system, not fit for purpose.
Let’s finish the job and give the old man some peace of mind
This is elder abuse and they should not be allowed to abuse their power as solicitor’s to think they are above the law.
Orla Douglas king
Day light robbery!!
Because all solicitor’s should be brought to account
too many valid questions and no answers
Signed this is descrasefull behaviour
The man deserves What bus owed to him
It just wrong. End of
Jusitice for michael
The Law is as Straight as a Door Jamb,It’s those that implements the Law that’s CROOKED
