INACCURATE FRAUDULENT AFFIDAVIT OF ANNE SANFORD AND KATHLEEN O’KEEFE WITHESSED BY SEAN NAUGHTON COMMISSIONER FOR OATHS ROSCOMMON

Sean Naughton Commissioner for Oaths, The Square in County Roscommon, the Affidavit you witnessed for Deponents Sanford and O’Keeffe on the 11th day of October 2021 is an INACCURATE FRAUDULENT document.

Anne Sanford does not live in Cork she resides at 31 Atwood Street, Wellesley, Mass  02482 USA.

The cautions affecting folios 8137F, 36155F, 9544F and RN40487F have base and foundation. The Cautions will not be removed from the properties belonging Patrick Gavin RIP until the demands Michael Gavin and  Eileen Linney are met. The manner in which the estate was dealt with constitutes Elder Abuse and FRAUD. Michael Gavin RIP was out of pocket in excess of €116,000 Department of Agriculture Grants.  Both Eileen Linney and Michael Gavin were shorted €12,500 each from Proceeds of the Land sale and a further €3,700 was deducted from Eileen Linney for cattle she never owned.

1.     Michael Gavin and his brother Pat lived together all their lives over 70 years in their humble home Dundonnell, Taughmaconnell in south Roscommon. After Pat died intestate on 10th October 2005, Michael Gavin continued farming and caring for the farm animals as he had always done. If Michael Gavin did not continue the farming of the land then the estate would not be entitled to claim the Entitlements.

2.     The family solicitor John Glynn wrote to each of the beneficiaries of Pat Gavin’s estate informing them of their entitlements. He also informed them that Michael Gavin wanted to forgo his share of the money left in Pat’s estate and compensate them additionally for the farm as he had worked it all his life and wished for it to be in his name.

3.     Robert Marren was suggested by a Barrister to administer the estate and this was agreed because no party knew Robert Marren prior.

4.     Anne Sanford got a Special High Court Summons in an attempt to sell the roof over Michael Gavin’s head stating in their sworn affidavit that the farm could not be sold without the farmhouse. Justice Mary Laffoy would not agree to this as Michael Gavin RIP had a right to reside in the farmhouse family home per his fathers will. “By notices in writing Kathleen ‘OKeefe, and Mary Theresa Harte have confirmed their desire to have the house and lands of the estate sold. Nicholas Duffy and his four children have also confirmed that they desire to have the property sold. It is also the wish of the Plaintiff that the property be sold.”

5.     Michael Gavin offered to compensate Anne Sanford, Kathleen O’Keeffe and the beneficiaries verbally and in writing countless times for the farm but they refused to entertain his wishes The lands were eventually auctioned and Anne Sanford, & Kathleen O’Keefe placed the winning bid, however did not close in the required 30 day time frame. The 2 sisters got the consent from the remaining next of kin to waive their share, so they were required to hand over just 1/3 of the purchase money with the agreed condition that they would cover the expenses associated with the Property Auction.

6.     To say that there were no bidders other than the family is untrue. The farm auction generated much interest and there were numerous bids from local farmers on the first parcel of land with the road frontage against Anne Sanford as Michael Gavin’s side did not place any bid on that parcel.

7.     Numerous written requests were made in vain for evidence that Anne Sanford and Kathleen O’Keeffe’s own personal funds were transferred to Robert Marren solicitor who was administrator. The Duffy and Harte families waived their interest in the estate to facilitate Sanford and O’Keeffe’s scheme.

8.     Anne Sanford and Kathleen O’Keeffe have succeeded in dividing the family with empty promises of a better deal than what the late Michael Gavin was prepared to give them. Michael went to work at 14 years of age under our fathers name to help feed the rest of the family and fund Kathleen O’Keeffe’s education in boarding school. He delivered loads of turf on a yearly basis to Duffy family in Athlone and did not deserve to be abused in his final years.

9.     Michael Gavin RIP DID NOT farm the lands freely and without question from October 2005 till 2014. Anne Sanford and Kathleen O’Keeffe’s numerous Solicitors tormented him with mentally abusive letters. After numerous written requests Robert Marren, Solicitor did indeed make a decision in March 2013 to accept Michael Gavin’s claim to owning half the livestock and all the sheep. Anne Sanford, Kathleen O’Keeffe and the family were no doubt happy with Marren’s decision to refuse to award Michael Gavin the net amount €116,789.11 due to him out of the Single Payment Entitlements representing his ½ share in the profits from farming the lands.

10.                 After Michael Gavin RIP passed Kathleen O’Keeffe and Anne Sanford leased the Farm lands to Lawrence Mc Manus from Pettigo, Co. Donegal Mobile No 083 113 3608 an alleged former IRA man who phoned Elderly Widowed Eileen Linney 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. 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 Eileen did not sign any agreement with Lawrence McManus nor did she ever meet with him.  Sanford and O’Keeffe then instructed their Cork based solicitor Vincent Toher to send Eileen Linney 3 threatening letters poorly written confused letters full of grammatical and spelling errors.

11.            The truth prevails at all times slanderous as it may be for Sanford and O’Keeffe. Sanford and O’Keeffe objected to the departments of Agriculture Grants being paid to Michael Gavin and Michael had to repay the original monies that John Glynn solicitor gave him to pay Joe Murray’s bill for animal feed and farm supplies. Michael Gavin expressed his dissatisfaction on numerous occasions and lack of compensation including in correspondence mailed to Kathleen O’Keeffe on Date 22/06/2015. See copy of letter. John Glynn Solicitor suggested on their behalf that Mr. Robert B. Marren take the case back before a Judge for a decision to be made particularly how the department of agriculture grants were to be distributed bearing in mind that Michael Gavin RIP had minded the farm animals for over 9 years, and paid the associated expenses out of his own pocket.  This was a contentious issue as Michael Gavin RIP had been Tricked and led to believe by his two sisters Ann Sanford and Kathleen O’Keefe all along that he would be compensated.

12.                 For the record the administrator Robert Marren has not completed the distribution of the estate of Patrick Gavin Jnr who died intestate as the Farmhouse remains in Patrick Gavin Jnr name. It is apparent that  Robert Marren favoured the wishes of Anne Sanford and Katheen O’Keeffe. Tony Watson solicitor from the Law Society Ireland stated in writing on 29/06/2015 that Mr. Marren distributed the estate based on his client’s Sanford and O’Keeffe’s very clear instructions. John Glynn solicitor who sought justice for Michael Gavin RIP and Eileen Linney referred to Sanford and O’Keeffe as 2 vengeful and spiteful sisters who had already put the estate to enormous legal expense and whom would be prepared to waste further assets in further litigation. John Glynn solicitor also questioned whether Robert Marren’s hands were tied by instructions received from Messrs Sanford & O’Keeffe.

13.                  The above facts are the truth the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

WHY DID TOWRAG VINCENT TOHER SOLICITOR SCRIBE THREATENING LETTER TO DEFENSELESS WIDOW

TOWRAG Vincent Toher Solicitors

TOWRAG,
WHAT AUTHORITY HAVE YOU TO SCRIBE A THREATENING LETTER TO DEFENSELESS WIDOW.
EXAMINE THE DOCUMENTATION ASSOCIATED WITH THE CAUTIONS  PLACED ON  8137F, 36155F, 9544F AND RN40487F FOR BASE AND FOUNDATION.
DO NOT CONTACT ME AGAIN, CONTACT THE SOLICITOR WHO SIGNED THE CAUTIONS IF YOU AND YOUR CLIENTS HAVE THE BALLS.

My 2 sisters Ann Sanford and Kathleen O’Keefe reported John Glynn Solicitor of Patrick Hogan and Co. Ballinasloe, to Law Society.   The Law Society advised John Glynn to step aside.  John Glynn continued to assist my Brother Michael Gavin RIP and I Eileen Linney with correspondence on our behalf (unletter Headed) to Mr. Robert B. Marren Solicitor Mullingar the appointed Administrator for Patrick Gavin’s Estate.  When Mr. Robert B. Marren issued the distribution statement it was apparent that he favoured our sisters wishes.

We challenged him on a number of points and John Glynn Solicitor suggested on our behalf that Mr. Robert B. Marren take the case back before a Judge for a decision to be made particularly how the department of agriculture grants were to be distributed bearing in mind that my late brother Michael Gavin RIP had minded the farm animals for over 9 years, and paid the associated expenses out of his own pocket.  This was a contentious issue as my brother Michael Gavin RIP had been Tricked and led to believe by his two sisters Ann Sanford and Kathleen O’Keefe all along that he would be compensated.

 Mr Marren responded by threatening my brother Michael Gavin RIP and I that if we did not engage a solicitor, he intended to proceed and distribute the estate assets according to the original distribution statement. John Glynn Solicitor spoke and wrote to Tony Henry Tormeys Solicitors, Athlone. 

Tony Henry Tormeys solicitors failed to undertake the instructions given him by John Glynn.   Tony Henry also failed to inform us, that he would not carry out those instructions.  Therefore Robert Marren distributed the estate assets in isolation to my brother Michael Gavin RIP and my objections.  

FOR THE RECORD. My brother was out of pocket in excess of €116,000 Department of Agriculture Grants.  Both my brother and I were shorted €12,500 EACH from Proceeds of the Land sale and a further €3,700 was deducted from me for cattle I never owned.

Our demands are the following:  That from the date that Mr. Robert B. Marren received and withheld funds from my late brother Michael Gavin RIP and I Eileen Linney, an interest rate of 8% is accruing to our account plus expenses, because of Mr. Robert B. Marren’s failure to make good on our legitimate claim or take the matter back to the courts for a Judge to decide.  The above has been written to and email to Marren and his state Solicitor Peter D. Jones numerous times, but no reply. 

This File given to Garda Fraud and contains the full details and evidence of the FRAUD and Financial Elder Abuse endured by my deceased Brother Michael Gavin and I Eileen Linney.

PEACEFUL PROTEST HITS MINISTER OF JUSTICE ROAD IN CASTLEKNOCK DUBLIN CITY

Francis Fitzgerald Protest

Its Sunday 12th March 2017 and its a little past 5.pm when Prime
Bling (PB) Your favorite on line digital entertainment guide arrives in
Castleknock a very well to do housing estate in Dublin City Ireland.
We are here today on an invite and the reason why anyone else is here
is that a peaceful protest has been called to protest directly first in the
housing estate where the Irish minister of justice and Tánaiste (Frances
Fitzgearald) lives, and then directly outside a house which has been
identified as that of minster of justice residence.

A movement known as A.C.T (Anti Corruption Taskforce) have
called this protest to highlight awareness over cases which they
allegedly state that minster of justice had been working on at their
request and has failed to get results in the correct time frame that was
stated or at all. They are also here to highlight other issues involving
the minster of justice and or cases which they allegedly claim where
not correctly investigated including the case of an elderly man by the
name of Micheal Gavin who alleges that he was conned by a solicitor
in rural Ireland and despite many a claim and promise nothing has
been done in the best interest of this elderly man’s case or in the correct
time frame.

When (PB) Arrived at the spot there were a few people standing
around, the first thing that was noted there were plenty of members
from the Garda Síochána (Irish Police) hanging about. Some were
cycling around the housing estate while others made their presence
known as they drove around in unmarked cars while a couple walked
up and down the road.

After some talk with some of these people it was discussed that the
minster of justice was not at home and maybe not even in the country
and they were at that time unsure which house was the intended house.
We hung around for a bit talking and every couple of minutes members
of the Gardai passed us either on the cycles or the cars. I got talking to
some of these people and some kindly agreed to be interviewed by (PB)
(Fionna) travelled up from Tipperary here in Ireland to be here today
she was with her son who lives up here in Dublin City. I asked her why
she came today she replied, she was sick of the injustice in our country
today and the way its been ran. Fionna also pointed out the amount of
Gardaí who were there and (at that particular time there seemed to be
more Garda than protesters)

(Fionna) Stressed that the amount of Gardaí who were there was a
total waste of tax payers money. Also some of the Gardai who were
there were Senior Gardaí figures on high pay.
(Gramah) Came out today to show support in solidarity to the
protesters, he too felt very strongly that the country is not been ran
properly.

While (PB) Was there local residents who at first looked bewildered
actually began to stop and ask what it was all about. Leaflets were
handed out and to everyone’s delight there was no negative talk from
any of the local residents who stopped by for a chat. For those who
didn’t stop or drove they could be seen reading the posters as they
drove on.

At a little past 6.pm the crowd grew as more protesters came, It was at
this time when a new Garda van could be seen parked up at the
entrance of the housing estate. While everyone stood around and talked
it was pointed out there was a drone flying overhead with some kind of
device hanging from it. When this drone stopped over the crowd in
mid-flight it appeared that the device on the drone was a camera.
Protesters then held up their posters directly at the drone which was
hovering above us and after a few minutes the drone flew away.
The crowd moved away back in towards the housing estate after it was
half confirmed that a house on the road was the minster of justices
home. While the crowd moved on up the road I stayed behind talking to
a chap who had a camera. The Garda van which was parked at entrance
began moving too and eventually passed us by, although this van had
blackout windows you could see the outline of those heavy yellow
jackets that the Gardaí do wear and this gave me an indication there
were more Garda personnel in the back of this van.

We joined the rest of the group who were standing outside a big house
there was at least 25 protesters there. I couldn’t help to notice that the
Gardaí felt or acted if they were nervous about been there. It would
appear by their behavior that they could, or they may have believed
that perhaps there was going to be trouble and they seemed to be ready
just in case with all the extra Gardaí Personal dotted in and around in
the cars and vans. I wouldn’t say that this housing estate gets this kind
of Gardaí activity every Sunday afternoon.

While I was standing there two more Gardaí pulled up in a car and they
got out and removed a poster that was put up on the bush directly
outside this house. They took the poster got back into the car then after
another few minutes got back out of the car and stood in the driveway
of this house like if they were guarding the house, It was at this stage I
knew for definite this was the right house.
Despite the heavy presence of the Gardaí there was no civil unrest from
any of these peaceful protesters, if anything they were very civil. One

man who tried to post a leaflet into the door was quickly removed by
the two Gardaí who were standing in the paved drive way.
(PB) Left at a little past 6.30 PM and it was confirmed that a letter
allegedly was to be handed in to the president residence at (Aras an
Uachtarain) in the Phoenix Park Dublin City.

Kathleen OKeefe Anne Sanford Exposed for Robbing my Dept of Agriculture Grants

Kathleen OKeefe Anne Sanford Exposed for Robbing my Dept of Agriculture Grants

Michael Gavin RIPwent to work at 14 years of age under his fathers name to help feed the rest of ye and fund your education in boarding school, and this is how you repay him!

After listening to a recording of the telephone conversation #KathleenOKeefe 42, #Glencairn, #Glanmire, Cork had with the man from #Cork I wish to state the following in response.

You state to a stranger that my nephew came back after many years while your brother (Pat Gavin) who owned the farm was still alive and your brother was dead within 7 months.

Have you reported this to the #GardaFraudSquad and if not why not? Did you not in fact say to the #Garda Fraud Squad that my nephew Michael cared for your 2 brothers when you were making your statement?

You go on to say that this is all greed on our part. You state that you and the rest of the family wanted to leave the farm to me without any interference but that I wanted my good friend and parish priest Father Sean to sit down with us. What is wrong with that? You Kathleen retaliated by sending that good Holy Man a BULLY BOY solicitors letter from (one of your many solicitors) #ToherSolicitors Cork a letter telling Him to mind his own business did you not you Bully.

You also stated that my nephew sent an email in your name Kathleen O’Keefe to a very vulnerable person with nasty stuff in it. That sound serious and should be reported to Garda Fraud Squad.

Why does my nephew exposing Injustice and #FinancialElderAbuse I have suffered harrass you KathleenO’Keefe? My book recounts the true facts of what transpired and haven’t we the right to share that experience in an effort to prevent the same devilish deeds occurring again.

You state numerous times through the recording I heard that my sister Eileen and my nephews motives are based on greed. Now if that’s not the pot calling the kettle black I don’t know what is. What have they or I gained to date from this saga as a result of your Greed, Kathleen O’Keefe.

You maintain the reason #AnneSanford 31 Atwood St, #Wellesley, #Massachusetts

. (781) 235 8681 bid at the land auction is because ye were maddened by the fact that my nephew Michael spoke up for me and requested that no one bid against me. Well actually for your record it was Father Neylon who suggested that I do that and on account of me being nervous my Nephew stood up with me and spoke on my behalf.

You state that you are left with the fall out of Anne Sanford placing the winning bid which was unfortunate, at bidding over the odds at the auction, that you are out of pocket embarrassed; you didn’t want it in the first place and had nothing to do with the distribution that was done independently.

Independently alright under your clear instructions to #RobertBMarren, my objections were not entertained.
John Glynn of Patrick Hogan and Co. our family solicitor for generations suggested that you Kathleen O’Keefe were the one making the bullets for Anne Sanford to fire and I believe this to be true.

You also make an issue that Marren was appointed by our side. Actually he was suggested by the Barrister, that was with Eileen and I and agreed by your side based on the fact that none of us knew Robert B Marren prior. You and your sister Anne Sanford got a special summons through your solicitor #TonyMcLynn Athlone in an attempt to sell the roof over my head and put me out on the street knowing full well that I had the right to live there for the rest of my days and now attempt to maintained that I am brain washed by those who stood and stand beside me to this day.

Who paid for those 3 days in the high court, ye didn’t ever show up the first day, sick with embarrassment no doubt. Who minded the animals for the 3 days? there was no deduction made to cover that cost of that man. In fact you and your devious spiteful sister Anne Sanford Wellesley USA (not mine but John Glynn solicitors words) would stop at nothing in squandering the Estate assets.

How do you maintain you are out of pocket when you and Sanford walked away with a FREE farm of land and nearly €40,000 and a further €10,000 a year in grants for lands that you never use as none of ye has any interest in farming.

How can you truthfully say that we were mad for Solicitors and mad for barristers but don’t want to pay for it?

We had one and only one solicitor John Glynn who was quite capable of administrating the estate. How many did you involve that we know about? First there was John Glynn whom ye attempted to intimidate with a tape recorder and then reported the honourable man to the law society, who advised him to step aside.

Then ye got Tony McLynn Solicitor Athlone who maintained I was intermingling in our late brothers estate. A bit rich considering I was eventually tricked into minding the estate animals for near on 10 years with not a copper for my time or expense in looking after the animals.

Then according to a letter from #TonyWatson at #LawSocietyofIreland ye were the clients of Robert B Marren, which might explain why Tony Mc Lynn was paid in full a year prior to Marren closing.

Lets not forget Toher your Cork solicitor you Kathleen O’Keefe hired to attack Fr. Neylon.
As regards payments we had no say in who got paid what.

It was a high court order that McLynn and John Glynn be paid by Your Solicitor Robber Marren. However Marren refused to pay John Glynn based on your objections I suspect.

As for Tony Henry Tormeys Solicitors Athlone he failed to undertake the instructions given him to prevent your solicitor (the solicitor for the estate) Robert Marren closing in isolation to my well found objections, so no fee was charged there.

The two Solicitors at the Law Society of Ireland namely Tony Watson and #LindaKirwan, are not fit for purpose, Watson threatened to block my emails after I highlighted that no invoice was provided for #WilliePenrose TD BL and questioned whether in fact he was paid.

Although Kirwan did inform us that it is against the law Marren not to provide a bill of costs. Who will enforce their law has yet to be determined!

So by all accounts it was you Kathleen O’Keefe that was mad for Solicitors and mad for barristers but did not want to pay for it. You are the one who “LOVES ALL THIS” as you put it.

Exposing the truth is not bullying tactics, the truth prevails at all times.

You say there would be no problem if your brother Patrick made a will but he didn’t, well I know what he would have wanted and so do you.

You say you paid well over the odds for the piece of land on the day of the auction and that you are very annoyed well who’s fault is that only your own. I offered to compensate you and the beneficiaries verbally and in writing countless times for the farm but you refused to entertain my wishes. Instead you bulldozed ahead defaming characters and squandering the estate assets of our late brother on legal fees. Our late brother had no time for solicitors so why did you encourage that.

You say you care for me your brother no matter what, what after what you have done.

Take a look at yourself your own siblings, those of Anne Sanford’s and those you permit to occupy the lands I farmed all my life, and remove the splinter from your own eyes before conducting further character assignations on those that genuinely care for me.

Why did you require a lease prepared by a Solicitor if you are the honest trust wordy person you claim to be that wouldn’t do anybody out of anything? That was a 10 year standard leases you tricked me into signing and I had to go to the expense of getting my family solicitor the one you reported to the law Society to write a number of letters to your solicitor tony mclynn to make necessary changes.

Your lease was only for 1 year with a condition that required me to “plough and reseed” poor quality lands that were never ploughed before, you exclude the hay shed and cattle crush making out that you wanted them for storage, what storage none of ye ever set foot on the place since, and regardless how was I supposed to test my animals as required.

Your solicitor Tony McLynn finally made the necessary changes and apologied to me in writing for the errors he made under his clients instructions. There was no mention of covering the necessary solicitor costs I incurred though. Yet again you attempted to take advantage of my good nature. No right minded farmer would ever consider accepting the terms you proposed.

That lease covered a period prior to Marren closing the property and thereby facilitated same. Although the cattle I lease the land of you to care for were my own and not the estates your solicitor followed your clear instructions and deducted €3,700 from me and a further €3,700 from Eileen and as you well know your sister never owned any stock. Regardless you made a fool of me again.Who would willingly lease lands to mind another’s animals?

I also heard you say that your intention was to allow me farm the lands in peace for the rest of my days. Why then did you write to me a number of months prior to the one year lease expiring and request that I vacate the land as you had other plans and would NOT be renewing the one year lease? I often wonder do you play the same tricks with the Meyers family who lease the better quality lands down the fields or do you just allow them in for FREE to spite me. Normal people would avoid using land involved in a family dispute but not them, not that Pat RIP or I ever had much time for them and their carry on.

You also say that by law your solicitor marren has to keep MY HOME in his name until such time as it needs to be distributed and it can never be distributed because my brother has a home there, that’s his home, we made sure it was left like that.

No Kathleen O’Keefe you and Anne Sanford took me to the #HighCourt for 3 days as mentioned above in an attempt to sell my home that I have a right to live in per our fathers will for the rest of my days. You made out that it would not be possible to sell the farm lands without my home. Only for #JudgeMaryLaffoy I would be completely homeless now all thanks to you. Why can’t you accept the truth of your actions and stop continually blaming others for your own misgivings.

As far as I am concerned now that your solicitor under your clear instructions has finished robbing me of my grants and fair share from the farm auction he needs to put the House and gardens in the beneficiaries names with the stipulation that I have the right to remain living here as per our fathers will. The only reason he keeps his name on the house is to insure another pull of money down the road which will amount to the value of the property if the solicitors have their way.

In the conversation you consistently belittle and defame the character of my nephew making out that he’s on the dole, which he is not. Who are you to speculate, after all social welfare supported your husband and family for many a year when ye returned from London with one arm longer that the other. Did not our sister Eileen, myself and other members of your family lend you Kathleen O’Keefe a substantial amount of money to help you buy a shop in Cork, not to mention the rental houses our deceased sister Teresa bought and paid you to manage. I went to work at 14 years of age under our fathers name to help feed the rest of ye and fund your education in boarding school, and this is how you repay me! Not as much as a Christmas card to your deceased Mother after all she did for you.

You make out its our fault that the family is at logger heads and that’s why no one comes to visit me anymore. Well who caused it only yourself not that any of ye ever came to visit much prior to our brother Pats death RIP.

You admit you paid over the odds for the farm at auction yet you Kathleen O’Keefe with your sister Anne Sanford came to me numerous times prior to closing and attempted to convince me to buy the farm of you at your over the odds price, that you trapped yourself into. Then instead of using your own money you convinced you Solicitor Robert Marren to follow your clear instructions to use the grant money paid down from the department of agriculture to pay me my share. You Kathleen O’Keefe and Anne Sanford lied to me countless times saying that you would contribute toward the cost of buying silage and nuts to feed the cattle that ye reaped a share of the gross profits from.

Finally you told me that it would be sorted out at closing and it was and I was left out of pocket over €116,000 for the 9 years I spent working for nothing funded by my own savings and old pension. My sister and I were also shorted €12,500 each plus interest from our share of the land sale and another €7,500 was deducted from us for cattle I owned and was leasing the lands to house. Tony Henry the solicitor who we attempted to engage to take this matter before the courts failed to undertake his instructions and therefore you and your solicitor Robber Marren was able to follow your clear instructions unchallenged. That is the truth of what transpired.

The #departmentofagriculture grants are to feed the farm animals and not the greedy solicitors and the beneficiaries of the estate that do nothing except cause trouble and squander the estate assets as far as I am concerned.
Have a Nice Day!

Who Deformed Gearoid Geraghty Solicitors Ballinasloe Character?

GGDeformation

Geraghty and co

In response to the letter you sent 10 June 2019

1st paragraph of your letter

You might note that Mr. Geraghty is away on vacation, however it has come to his attention through a third party that your son has posted certain information on social media which is at best untrue.

In response we state.

All the information posted on social media by supporters of the Justice for Michael Gavin RIP are factual. Geraghty was warned both verbally and in writing that if he did NOT return Michael Gavin’s Case to Council File and Book Financial Elder Abuse he would be exposed to the general public and reported to the Law Society of Ireland not that they are fit for purpose.

GGDeformation2

2nd paragraph of your letter

Mr. Geraghty considers the information published as defamatory of him and of a third party whom ironically, we act for.

Our Response

The real irony lies in the fact that Geraghty did NOT act for his original client Michael Gavin’s Elderly widowed sister Eileen Linney. Geraghty refused to sign the Land Registry documents to place a charge lien against the properties in Dundonnell, Taughmaconnell and made little of the fact that Eileen made a special trip to Roscommon to get the forms. Geraghty said he could download the forms himself in the office.

Geaghty ignored the fact that Elderly Eileen was receiving threatening phone calls from an alleged  IRA parasite Lawrence McManus who claimed to be a court appointed mediator who intended to sell the home where she and her Late brothers Patrick and Michael Gavin RIP lived.

3rd paragraph of your letter

Please be advised that the publication of a photograph of an innocent person in a dispute between your good self and this office, is defamation of that person’s character and our Mr. Geraghty will take the instructions from that person (who is a client of his) on his return from holidays.

Our Response

QUESTION

Please provide an answer to the following question

Why are the instructions of Geraghty’s BANKSTER Client more important than the written and verbal instructions of Eileen Linney.?

Why are the instructions of Geraghty’s BANKSTER Client more important than the written and verbal instructions of Eileen Linney.?

4th paragraph of your letter

In the meantime, however, the continued existence of the posts by your son constitutes an ongoing defamation and we request that same is immediately removed.

Our Response

You may inform your bankster client that we have replaceD his photo with the following photo.

cromwell

5th paragraph of your letter

In the event that this is not done , then on Mr. Geraghty’s return to office on the 17th of June, he will pursue the matter in the appropriate legal manner.

Our Response

Question

Why did Geraghty NOT pursue the Financial Elder Abuse of Deceased Michael Gavin and Eileen Linney and the threatening phone calls, in the appropriate legal manner??

Why did Geraghty NOT persue the Financial Elder Abuse of Deceased Michael Gavin and Eileen Linney and the threatening phone calls, in the appropriate legal manner??

6th paragraph of your letter

If this course of action is necessary, it may result in further additional costs to you and we must advise that the continued existence of the posting continues to be an ongoing and further defamation of this office, Mr Geraghty and his client.

Our Response.

The appropriate charge lien were signed by another person at a cost of Twenty Euro a fraction of what your office is demanding €500 EURO to do nothing except trying to create unnecessary work TYPICAL OF PARASITES IN YOUR PROFESSION. 

Our posts are factual and will continue until your office returns Michael Gavin’s Case to Council File and Book Financial Elder Abuse Book.

7th paragrapg of your letter

We would be obliged therefore for your conformation that the post would be removed. if it is not, then the matter will be pursued through all legal channels available on Mr. Geraghty’s return from vacation.

Our Response.

We would be obliged if your office would write a letter of apology to Eileen Linney, Michael Gavin’s Elderly widowed sister and return  Michael Gavin’s Case to Council File and Book Financial Elder Abuse.

In addition to placing charge liens on the properties of my Late Brother Pat Gavin RN8137F, RN36155F, RN9544F to include the house, old house and the lands that were sold at auction to Anne Sanford and Kathleen O’keefe in Dundonell Taughmanconnell.

My instruction to you Mr Geraghty were write a strong threatening letter to those currently using the lands Michael Myers and Paddy Myers Dundonnell Taughmaconnell and Lawrence McManus Pettigo Donegal to cease from doing as the lands are in dispute and were obtained fraudulently.

Also write to the department of Agriculture and instruct them to stop paying out grants on the Farm lands until such time as this matter is sorted.

Write to Eugene Finneran, the Land registry Roscommon and the district court and inform them that they do not have my permission to sell the house at Dundonnell Taugmaconnell.

Who cares whether you consider the letters relevant, Eileen Linnen consider it to be relavent and we believe the manner in which her late brother estate was dealt with constitutes Elder Abuse and FRAUD.

So why did you not do as instructed Geraghty???

Geraghty you did none of the above NONE and now you refuse to give back documents that it was obvious from your correspondence you did not read.

You are holing Michael Gavin’s Case to Council File and book on Financial Elder Abuse book RANSOM until your fee of €500 for doing nothing is paid. 

In fact if we had listened to you Mc Manus may have sold the property by now.

Geraghty you and your office may want to take into consideration that we are not your everyday humble peasant farmers.

Michael Gavin RIP was a founding member of the ACT Anti Corruption Taskforce and involved in numerous other peaceful activist groups. We will leave no stone unturned until justice is served.

Run along now to your sissies with the white wigs.

Have a Nice Day

The law is as straight a door Jamb, Its those that implements the Law that are crooked.

Gearoid Geraghty Solicitor Ballinasloe fond of the drink holds Michael Gavin’s Files RANSOM

ombudsman-complaints.

ombudsman complaints.

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.
Yours sincerely
Elizabeth Culhane
Office of the Ombudsman
Elizabeth Culhane

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 !!!!!

Supporters Comments To Corrupt Persons, #Solicitors, #Lawyers, #Judges #Politicians, The truth the Whole Truth and nothing but the Truth of your Lying Greed and Injustice.

“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.‖
―Shocking Corruption Exposed by Elderly Farmer. This is Rural Ireland 2015.
You won’t see this on 6.01 News.‖

―To commit fraud is an offense in Ireland. But the prosecution for such will
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!‖

―This is the saddest story I have heard in all my fifteen years in Ireland. it is
sad because it predicts the future and yet no-one cares because you are asleep.
You Irish have made for yourself a bed of nails through your gutlessness and
apathy. And let hell skelp it into ye.‖

―His estranged family will have no luck for this. Denying water and shelter to
someone is not part of our culture. What goes around comes around I’ve seen
it happen before, maybe not this generation but the next. A curse on them.‖
―Irish law society closed ranks apparently facilitating the denying of justice to
an elderly farmer.‖

―Hi Mike I have just read the whole story from beginning to end an utter
disgrace very sad totally injust . can’t find the share button. I do hope that
things will go right for him. The expense so far is unreal‖

―What else should be expected in Ireland today. The real issue is too many
have the attitude of I’m all right jack so f*** you‖

―Cases like this one rely on secrecy, sharing on social media may deter future
fraud occurring within families regarding the beneficiaries of a will, it’s far
too common.‖

―As an Irish American dealing with a case with similarities there is no justice
in this country for seniors…it should be reported in the media in the states. I
will be doing so, have Sean Hannity get involved on Fox news he hates
injustice!!‖

―the mob in the legal world have no honour, respect or fairness its all about
..money‖

―its a disgrace what has being done to this man and its theft ,,, so robert
marren should be charged with theft , and its shame on tony mclynn solicitors
for taking this case and for their huge fees they charged which is also theft,
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.‖

Mairead Gallagher
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!.

Mike Real
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.

Paul Lally
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.

Kathleen o Keefe and Anne Sanford Instigators of Financial Elder Abuse

 

After listening to a recording of the telephone conversation #KathleenOKeefe had with the man from Cork I wish to state the following in response.

You state to a stranger that my nephew came back after many years while your brother (Pat Gavin) who owned the farm was still alive and your brother was dead within 7 months.

Have you reported this to the Garda #Fraud Squad and if not why not? Did you not in fact say to the Garda Fraud Squad that my nephew Michael cared for your 2 brothers when you were making your statement?

You go on to say that this is all greed on our part. You state that you and the rest of the family wanted to leave the farm to me without any interference but that I wanted my good friend and parish priest Father Sean to sit down with us. What is wrong with that? You Kathleen retaliated by sending that good Holy Man a BULLY BOY solicitors letter from (one of your many solicitors) Toher Solicitors Cork a letter telling Him to mind his own business did you not you Bully.

You also stated that my nephew sent an email in your name Kathleen O’Keefe to a very vulnerable person with nasty stuff in it. That sound serious and should be reported to Garda Fraud Squad.

Why does my nephew exposing Injustice and Financial #ElderAbuse I have suffered harass you Kathleen O’Keefe? My book recounts the true facts of what transpired and haven’t we the right to share that experience in an effort to prevent the same devilish deeds occurring again.

You state numerous times through the recording I heard that my sister Eileen and my nephews motives are based on greed. Now if that’s not the pot calling the kettle black I don’t know what is. What have they or I gained to date from this saga as a result of your #Greed, Kathleen O’Keefe.

You maintain the reason #AnneSanford 31 Atwood Street #Wellesley #Massachuetts, USA bid at the land auction is because ye were maddened by the fact that my nephew Michael spoke up for me and requested that no one bid against me. Well actually for your record it was Father Neylon who suggested that I do that and on account of me being nervous my Nephew stood up with me and spoke on my behalf.

You state that you are left with the fall out of Anne Sanford placing the winning bid which was unfortunate, at bidding over the odds at the auction, that you are out of pocket embarrassed; you didn’t want it in the first place and had nothing to do with the distribution that was done independently.

Independently alright under your clear instructions to Robert B Marren, my objections were not entertained.
John Glynn of Patrick Hogan and Co. our family solicitor for generations suggested that you Kathleen O’Keefe were the one making the bullets for Anne Sanford to fire and I believe this to be true.

You also make an issue that Marren was appointed by our side. Actually he was suggested by the Barrister, that was with Eileen and I and agreed by your side based on the fact that none of us knew Robert B Marren prior. You and your sister Anne Sanford got a special summons through your solicitor #TonyMcLynn Athlone in an attempt to sell the roof over my head and put me out on the street knowing full well that I had the right to live there for the rest of my days and now attempt to maintained that I am brain washed by those who stood and stand beside me to this day.

Who paid for those 3 days in the high court, ye didn’t ever show up the first day, sick with embarrassment no doubt. Who minded the animals for the 3 days? there was no deduction made to cover that cost of that man. In fact you and your devious spiteful sister Anne Sanford Wellesley USA (not mine but John Glynn solicitors words) would stop at nothing in squandering the Estate assets.

How do you maintain you are out of pocket when you and Sanford walked away with a FREE farm of land and nearly €40,000 and a further €10,000 a year in grants for lands that you never use as none of ye has any interest in farming.

How can you truthfully say that we were mad for Solicitorsand mad for barristers but don’t want to pay for it?

We had one and only one solicitor John Glynn who was quite capable of administrating the estate. How many did you involve that we know about? First there was John Glynn whom ye attempted to intimidate with a tape recorder and then reported the honourable man to the law society, who advised him to step aside.

t&n+front (1)

Then ye got Tony McLynn Solicitor Athlone who maintained I was intermingling in our late brothers estate. A bit rich considering I was eventually tricked into minding the estate animals for near on 10 years with not a copper for my time or expense in looking after the animals.
Then according to a letter from Tony Watson at Law Society of Ireland ye were the clients of Robert B Marren, which might explain why Tony Mc Lynn was paid in full a year prior to Marren closing.

Lets not forget Toher your Cork solicitor you Kathleen O’Keefe hired to attack Fr. Neylon.
As regards payments we had no say in who got paid what.

It was a high court order that McLynn and John Glynn be paid by Your Solicitor Robber Marren. However Marren refused to pay John Glynn based on your objections I suspect.

As for Tony Henry Tormeys Solicitors Athlone he failed to undertake the instructions given him to prevent your solicitor (the solicitor for the estate) Robert Marren closing in isolation to my well found objections, so no fee was charged there.

The two Solicitors at the Law Society of Ireland namely Tony Watson and Linda Kirwan, are not fit for purpose, Watson threatened to block my emails after I highlighted that no invoice was provided for Willie Penrose TD BL and questioned whether in fact he was paid.

Although Kirwan did inform us that it is against the law Marren not to provide a bill of costs. Who will enforce their law has yet to be determined!
So by all accounts it was you Kathleen O’Keefe that was mad for Solicitors and mad for barristers but did not want to pay for it. You are the one who “LOVES ALL THIS” as you put it.

Exposing the truth is not bullying tactics, the truth prevails at all times.

You say there would be no problem if your brother Patrick made a will but he didn’t, well I know what he would have wanted and so do you.
You say you paid well over the odds for the piece of land on the day of the auction and that you are very annoyed well who’s fault is that only your own. I offered to compensate you and the beneficiaries verbally and in writing countless times for the farm but you refused to entertain my wishes. Instead you bulldozed ahead defaming characters and squandering the estate assets of our late brother on legal fees. Our late brother had no time for solicitors so why did you encourage that.

You say you care for me your brother no matter what, what after what you have done.

Take a look at yourself your own siblings, those of Anne Sanford’s and those you permit to occupy the lands I farmed all my life, and remove the splinter from your own eyes before conducting further character assignations on those that genuinely care for me.

Why did you require a lease prepared by a Solicitor if you are the honest trust wordy person you claim to be that wouldn’t do anybody out of anything? That was a 10 year standard leases you tricked me into signing and I had to go to the expense of getting my family solicitor the one you reported to the law Society to write a number of letters to your solicitor tony mclynn to make necessary changes. Your lease was only for 1 year with a condition that required me to “plough and reseed” poor quality lands that were never ploughed before, you exclude the hay shed and cattle crush making out that you wanted them for storage, what storage none of ye ever set foot on the place since, and regardless how was I supposed to test my animals as required.

Your solicitor Tony McLynn finally made the necessary changes and apologied to me in writing for the errors he made under his clients instructions. There was no mention of covering the necessary solicitor costs I incurred though. Yet again you attempted to take advantage of my good nature. No right minded farmer would ever consider accepting the terms you proposed.

That lease covered a period prior to Marren closing the property and thereby facilitated same. Although the cattle I lease the land of you to care for were my own and not the estates your solicitor followed your clear instructions and deducted €3,700 from me and a further €3,700 from Eileen and as you well know your sister never owned any stock. Regardless you made a fool of me again.Who would willingly lease lands to mind another’s animals?

I also heard you say that your intention was to allow me farm the lands in peace for the rest of my days. Why then did you write to me a number of months prior to the one year lease expiring and request that I vacate the land as you had other plans and would NOT be renewing the one year lease? I often wonder do you play the same tricks with the Meyers family who lease the better quality lands down the fields or do you just allow them in for FREE to spite me. Normal people would avoid using land involved in a family dispute but not them, not that Pat RIP or I ever had much time for them and their carry on.

You also say that by law your solicitor marren has to keep MY HOME in his name until such time as it needs to be distributed and it can never be distributed because my brother has a home there, that’s his home, we made sure it was left like that.

TonyMcLynn2

No Kathleen O’Keefe you and Anne Sanford took me to the High Court for 3 days as mentioned above in an attempt to sell my home that I have a right to live in per our fathers will for the rest of my days. You made out that it would not be possible to sell the farm lands without my home. Only for Judge Mary Laffoy I would be completely homeless now all thanks to you. Why can’t you accept the truth of your actions and stop continually blaming others for your own misgivings.

As far as I am concerned now that your solicitor under your clear instructions has finished robbing me of my grants and fair share from the farm auction he needs to put the House and gardens in the beneficiaries names with the stipulation that I have the right to remain living here as per our fathers will. The only reason he keeps his name on the house is to insure another pull of money down the road which will amount to the value of the property if the solicitors have their way.

In the conversation you consistently belittle and defame the character of my nephew making out that he’s on the dole, which he is not. Who are you to speculate, after all social welfare supported your husband and family for many a year when ye returned from London with one arm longer that the other. Did not our sister Eileen, myself and other members of your family lend you Kathleen O’Keefe a substantial amount of money to help you buy a shop in Cork, not to mention the rental houses our deceased sister Teresa bought and paid you to manage. I went to work at 14 years of age under our fathers name to help feed the rest of ye and fund your education in boarding school, and this is how you repay me! Not as much as a Christmas card to your deceased Mother after all she did for you.

You make out its our fault that the family is at logger heads and that’s why no one comes to visit me anymore. Well who caused it only yourself not that any of ye ever came to visit much prior to our brother Pats death RIP.

You admit you paid over the odds for the farm at auction yet you Kathleen O’Keefe with your sister Anne Sanford came to me numerous times prior to closing and attempted to convince me to buy the farm of you at your over the odds price, that you trapped yourself into. Then instead of using your own money you convinced you Solicitor Robert Marren to follow your clear instructions to use the grant money paid down from the department of agriculture to pay me my share. You Kathleen O’Keefe and Anne Sanford lied to me countless times saying that you would contribute toward the cost of buying silage and nuts to feed the cattle that ye reaped a share of the gross profits from.

Finally you told me that it would be sorted out at closing and it was and I was left out of pocket over €116,000 for the 9 years I spent working for nothing funded by my own savings and old pension. My sister and I were also shorted €12,500 each plus interest from our share of the land sale and another €7,500 was deducted from us for cattle I owned and was leasing the lands to house. Tony Henry the solicitor who we attempted to engage to take this matter before the courts failed to undertake his instructions and therefore you and your solicitor Robber Marren was able to follow your clear instructions unchallenged. That is the truth of what transpired.

deptofag

The department of agriculture grants are to feed the farm animals and not the greedy solicitors and the beneficiaries of the estate that do nothing except cause trouble and squander the estate assets as far as I am concerned.
Have a Nice Day!

Gardai Attempted to Interrogate Elderly Michael Gavin RIP

Gardai Attempted to Interrogate Elderly Michael Gavin RIP

On Friday the 20th of May a local Garda and Roscommon detective called to Mike Gavin’s Home, Dundonnell Taughmaconnell.

They were told Mikie was gone to Mullingar (Protest). They said they wanted to see Mikie re the Fraud “Thing”.

They called back the next day despite the fact that Mike’s sister Eileen called them and told them that they were sending their Fraud file to Dublin when it was complete.

They came regardless and told Mike’s sister it had nothing to do with her and they wanted to see Mike Gavin.

Mike’s sister locked the door and told them repeatedly out the window to go away and leave them alone and eventually they did.

3 Gardai returned the following Wednesday and got Mike home alone. Mike Gavin describes here what happened.

Minister Frances Fitzgerald Ignores Solicitors Financial Elder Abuse Why

 

Minister’s Reference 0531102449

Date 08/03/2017

Dear Minister Fitzgerald,

In response to your recent email dated 3rd March 2017, relating to the correspondence I emailed to your office dated June 10th 2016 I wish to state the following.
I appreciate the fact that you requested a Garda report to fully address my concerns, and fully trained investigators have since investigated the allegations I made and referred a file to the Director of Prosecutions (DPP).

However this further squandering of Tax Payers money could all have been avoided;

If Sean O Fearghail Ceann Comhairle allowed Clare Daly TD to question you Tanaiste and Minister for Justice and Equality re the legal grounds upon which members of An Garda Siochana in County Roscommon entered my home on 20th May 2016.

The written reason given to Clare Daly TD was “The question is not in order as it requires an interpretation of the law and relates not to a policy issue but to an individual case which is an operational one for An Garda Siochana. Begs the question who ordered this Garda operation bearing in mind that you Minister Fitzgerald requested a Garda report after you received my correspondence dated 10th June 2016.

If Robert B Marren Solicitor had performed his duties as appointed by Judge Mary Laffoy to administer the Estate of my Late Brother Patrick Gavin. Marren followed the clear instructions of the other beneficiaries, as stated by Tony Watson Solicitor Law Society of Ireland.

If Robert B Marren had not deprived me the right to have my well-founded objections brought before a Judge. Marren confiscated the Department of Agriculture grants, so I was tricked into working for nothing for over 9 years minding farm animals. My widowed sister and I were also shorted €12,500 plus interest from the sale of the lands at auction, not to mention money that was deducted from my sister for cattle she never owned any cattle in her life.

If Tony Henry Tormeys Solicitors Athlone had undertaken the written and verbal instructions given him though another solicitor to take proceedings against Marren and make him go before a Judge to address my valid objections instead of playing GOD in the matter.

If Tony Watson Law Society of Ireland had reprimanded Marren and Henry. Instead Watson threatened to block my email correspondence when I questioned whether Willie Penrose TD was paid for his opinion. No invoice to date has being provided for Penrose although the estate of my late Brother was charged. I very much doubt Penrose had much if anything to say for himself to the trained fraud investigator who questioned him.

If Peter D. Jones Westmeath State Solicitor (minus his penalty points) had responded to the correspondence on behalf of his client Robert B Marren. Jones threatened me not to peaceful protest outside his client Marren’s office. Coincidentally the Garda Fraud squad missed getting me home the first time they called unannounced as I was already on the road to peaceful assembly protest outside Marren and Jones offices in Mullingar.

If Linda Kirwan Solicitor from the Society of Ireland fit her purpose and reprimanded Penalty Points Jones State Solicitor for failing to answer the 20 questions I posed to him in regard to his client Robert B Marren’s administration of my late brother’s estate. Kirwan although she did send literature stating that by law a solicitor must provide a bill of costs to his client, she fails to enforce this law.

While I do understand that you as Tanaiste have no role in the investigation, prosecution or trail, I find it difficult to appreciate how the State funded Director of Prosecutions (DPP) can be considered an independent body.

Francis Fitzgerald Protest

Although I have no background or understanding of the common or statute laws that the DPP will use to base their decision on. I do understand what the old people meant when they said “The Law is as straight as a door jamb, it’s those that implements it thats crooked.” No man has a right to blaggard another the way them solicitors named above did me.

In the event that the DPP does not prosecute and bearing in mind the fact that solicitors generally refuse to challenge each other in cases such as mine.

What course of action is available to prevent Financial Elder Abuse??

Elder abuse may be defined as:

“A single or repeated act or lack of appropriate action occurring within any relationship where there is an expectation of trust which causes harm or distress to an older person or violates their human and civil rights”.

Rights abuse: denying the civil and constitutional rights of a person who is old, but not declared by court to be mentally incapacitated. This is an aspect of elder abuse that is increasingly being recognized and adopted by nations

Please Support Michael Gavin Elderly 83 Year Old Irish Farmer by Signing Petition

 

We wish to report a crime to the An Garda Síochána against Mr. Robert Marren Solicitor Castle Street, Mullingar and Mr. Tony Henry, Tormeys Solicitors Castle Street, Athlone.

The facts are as follows;

Mr Marren Solicitor held on to our funds €82,500 each received from the land sale of our late brothers estate for nearly 2 years despite our repeated request for same to be distributed to us.

The funds he did finally award us were €12,500 plus interest less than what we were each entitled to.

Mr. Marren refused to award Michael Gavin the Grant Moneys paid down from the Department of Agriculture and monies for minding the estate animals for 9 years and instead of taking the matter before a Judge as he was requested to do, he closed the estate speedily over the Christmas period of 2014.

Mr Tony Henry of Tormeys Solicitors Athlone facilitated Mr. Marren by not undertaking the instructions given him on our behalf through another Solicitor John Glynn, namely to contact Mr. Marren immediately and prevent him closing in isolation to our objections.

There are numerous other abnormalities in the accounting of the Estate funds including

  • Why was Willie Penrose TD BL not paid for his opinion when the Estate was charged for same?
  • Why was John Glynn Solicitor not paid over €84,000 plus.
  • Why was an additional accountant hired against our wishes at a cost of €8,751.45;
  • Why has Mr. Marren not provided a “detailed Bill of Costs” for the fees of €40,892.53 awarded to himself, as he stated he would.
  • Why were we not provided with a Bill of Cost for T & N McLynn, Solicitors, Athlone who we were informed was paid their handsome amount of €38,941.00 approximately a year prior closing.

We also take exception to the Bully Boy letter Tony Henry Tormeys Solicitors Athlone recently sent to Eileen.

My brother and I feel a grave injustice has been dealt to us that constitutes Elder Financial Abuse of the highest order.

We request that An Garda Síochána conduct a thorough investigation of the matter.

Petition Justice for Michael Gavin Elderly 83 Year Old Irish Farmer

Sign the petition

Please Support Michael Gavin Elderly 83 Year Old Irish Farmer by Signing Petition

“After the death of my brother Patrick Gavin I was appointed heard keeper for the animals by the Department of Agriculture. My understanding was that I would receive the grant monies paid from the department to subsidise the looking after the animals.

I don’t understand how Mr Marren, Solicitor can permit the estate to have it both ways, and I feel I should be awarded either the grant monies paid by the Department of Agriculture for the nine years I have looked after all the animals, or in the alternative I should be paid reasonable farm labors wages and refunds for the expenses incurred in running the farm as appointed heard keeper by the Department of Agriculture.

The next of kin cannot have it both ways. They cannot on the one hand expect to receive the monies from the sale of my late brother Pat Gavin’s livestock together with the gross payments received from the Department of Agriculture, without incurring any expense for the minding, looking after and caring for the animals down through the years.

As regards ownership of the livestock, I have been totally consistent in claiming that I own half of the livestock and all of the sheep. My ownership of half of the livestock goes back to my youth when my parents encouraged me to take an interest in farming by giving me a number of animals within the overall herd which I with the consent of my brother, Pat was able to have and maintain on the lands. Over the years I added to the original stock by purchasing other stock out of my own monies and by doing deals with my brother, Pat, so that ultimately, by the time Pat died in October, 2005 I owned half the entire herd. Moreover I owned all the sheep as my brother Pat got out of sheep a few years before he died and sold all his interest in the sheep to me. Accordingly, in the referenced years for the purpose of acquiring the Single Farm payment Entitlements, half the livestock on the lands belonged to me and my brother, Pat shared the entitlements with me. There was no differences between Pat and myself in our dealings. In other words we shared the workload, we shared all the expenses, and we shared the profit and income from the land.

Bones of Contention with Mr. Robert Marren administrator for the estate;

Mr. Robert Marren, Solicitor allowed confusion to arise in relation to the exact disbursement of funds held by him;

Grossly delayed, without reasonable explanation, the administration of the estate, the deceased person having died in 2005 some ten years ago;

Mr. Robert Marren, Solicitor showed a complete disregard for the interests of the beneficiaries, whom Mr. Marren, Solicitor, knew to be elderly, and by his conduct is depriving two of the beneficiaries, of the enjoyment of their share in the estate;

Provided an inadequate professional service and it is not of a quality that could reasonably be expected of a solicitor. There is no good reason why Mr Marren did not “bite the bullet” and pay over the full 1/6 share when he received the funds way back on 27th of May 2013.

Being reluctant to resolve the issue in isolation to the rest of the Estate;

Not provided the detailed bill of costs to include a detailed breakdown of how the figure of €40,892.53 representing fees paid to Robert Marren & Co. were arrived at;

Mr. Robert Marren, Solicitor brought the solicitors profession into disrepute;

Denied me a share in the farming profits, to the extent that I was working for nothing over the 9 years in question from October, 2005 through to 2013;

Provided an inadequate professional service and it is not of a quality that could reasonably be expected of a solicitor with regards to the explanation he provides to explain how he arrived at his decision to award the moneys received from the sale of Pat Gavin’s livestock together with the Gross payments received from the Department of Agriculture without deducting any expense for the minding, looking after, feeding and caring for the animals for the nine years from 2005 to 2014;

Delayed making the decision regarding my share in the farming profits and rightful share of the grant monies received from the Department of Agriculture until the very end with the draft distribution account that contained countless errors on 18th September, 2014. I was lied to countless times and led to believe that I would be refunded at closing by some of the beneficiaries. Why did Mr. Robert Marren, Solicitor, Mullingar make a decision around March 2013 to accept my claim to owning half the livestock and all the sheep? But yet for no logical reason refuses to award me the net amount €xxxxx.11 due to me out of the Single Payment Entitlements representing my ½ share in the profits from farming the lands, which was also sent to Mr. Robert Marren, Solicitor, Mullingar on the 5th of December, 2015 for his consideration. There is no good reason why he took advantage of my good nature and delayed his decision in this matter until the end;

Mr. Robert Marren, Solicitor squandered the Estate assets by hiring an additional accountant against my wishes at a cost of €8,751.45;

Accounting mistakes and lack of clarity;

Forced me to incur additional unnecessary expenses in drafting documents and letters time and time again to prove my claim;

Not furnished a detailed statement of all the legal costs to his client. Under Section 68 of the Solicitors (Amendment) Act, 1994 provides for charges to clients. Under these provisions a solicitor should furnish a detailed statement of all the legal costs to his client;

Not furnished a copy of Solicitor T & N McLynn’s Solicitors, Athlone Bill of Costs for the handsome fee of €38,941.00;

Provided incorrect invoice for Catherine O’Conner Accountant. Catherine O’Conner’s invoice states Total Amount Due €584.25 while Cash Account dated 18th July, 2014 “Fees paid to Catherine O’ Connor €6,857.25;

Not provided an invoice for William Penrose B.L. or explanation of why his opinion was sought for €1,230.00;

Not provided an invoice for John Dolan Auctioneer, Ballinasloe, and breakdown of the fee he was paid. As I recall the auctioneer John Dolan did advertise the auction extensively and I recall full and half page ads appeared in the local newspapers. I would argue that based on the amount of interest and bids made at the auction that these ads served no purpose other than to promote John Dolans Auctioneering service as a whole. I believe that a free mention in the local parish newsletter would have sufficed.

 Bones of Contention with Mr. Tony Henry, Tormeys Solictiors, Athlone;

Tony Henry, Tormeys Solictiors, Athlone, showed a complete disregard for my instructions known me to be elderly, and by his conduct has deprived my sister Eileen and I the opportunity to have our objections addressed prior to closing, and our 1/6 share of the land from the auction dealt with in isolation to the rest of the estate. Not to mention my share in the farming profits due to me out of the Single Payment Entitlements representing his ½ share in the profits from farming the lands for the 9 years in question;

Tony Henry, Tormeys Solictiors, Athlone, provided an inadequate professional service and it is not of a quality that could reasonably be expected of a Solicitor. There is no good reason why Mr Henry did not at least telephone Mr. Marren in an effort to avoid further proceedings.

At a subsequent meeting with Mr. Henry Solicitor, Athlone after Mr. Marren’s closing, Mr. Tony Henry, Solicitor estimated that court proceedings to sue Mr. Marren Solicitor could take up to 3 years with fees in the region of €60,000 to €100,000, and he suggested that I Michael Gavin should take his age (83) into consideration.

As I recall at our meeting in his office he stated that he could see no fault in Mr. Marren going ahead to finalize the distribution without addressing our objections, namely to pay our €82,500 1/6 share of the land from the auction in isolation to the rest of the estate. I do recall Mr. Tony Henry, Solicitor stated he would have administered the estate in the same fashion himself, which begs the question why he was still adamant that we should retain his services to sue Mr. Marren, and “put his shoulder to the wheel as he put it.”

He told us he would send us the figures of costs and details in relation to suing Mr. Marren, but he never did.

At the meeting he also agreed to contact us after his call to Marren, Solicitor to let us know how it went, but never did.

My Sister Eileen followed up and had to ring Henry numerous times before he finally returned her call weeks after our meeting on the 16th February 2015. She was on a noisy bus at the time and does not recall exactly what Henry said other than that he would send a letter with details of costs and what would be involved regarding us taking Mr. Marren to court, but he never did that.

However this letter never arrived, so after waiting about 2 months in or around the end of March My sister Eileen spoke to another Solicitor in Athlone Martin Egan. Martin assisted her to write a letter to disengage Tony Henry, Solicitor, Athlone.

It would appear that Mr. Tony Henry, Tormeys Solictiors, Athlone, provided an inadequate professional service and it is not of a quality that could reasonably be expected of a Solicitor. There is no good reason why Mr Henry, Solicitor, did not at least telephone Mr. Marren in an effort to avoid further proceedings.

The bully boy letter that Tony Henry wrote and sent to my Elderly Defenceless Widowed sister Eileen Linney who was merely attempting to seek justice in the matter as a result of Tony Henry’s failure to undertake our simple yet crucial instructions, given him on our behalf through our family Solicitor.

Bones of Contention with the Beneficiaries and their Solicitor T & N McLynn Athlone;

They summoned me to the High Court in an effort to sell the roof over my head along with the lands among other things knowing full well that I was entitled to reside in the house for the rest of my days as per my late Fathers will.

They tricked me into minding the estate animals and broke promises that they would buy food nuts for the animals and also promised me that I would be compensated for minding the animals at closing and awarded the grant monies from the department of Agriculture.

They prepared and tricked me into signing their lease agreement on 27th August without providing me an opportunity to read over same carefully or to consider the matter. Consequently I was forced to get legal advice in order to amend a number of your conditions including my agreement to “having fully restored the lands to grassland by ploughing and reseeding by no later than the 31st of July 2015.” Lands that were never used for tillage, and even if they were who would commit to a short term 1 year lease with that condition. This appears underhanded to me and highlights the inadequate professional service provided by Solicitor T&N McLynn, Athlone. It is not of a quality that could reasonably be expected of a solicitor and served no purpose other than to force me to incur additional unnecessary expenses for legal advice to draft letters in response to the lease agreement they tricked me into signing. I would question also whether T&N McLynn is guilty of Misconduct by tending to bring the solicitors profession into disrepute. It is worth noting also that I was never provided a copy of Solicitors T&N McLynn’s Bill of Costs.

Bones of Contentions with the Law Society of Ireland;

Their failure to find any fault with Rober Marren Solicitor based on the 8 complaints made to them in regard to how Mr. Marren Solicitor Administered the Estate of my Late brother Pat Gavin

The Law Societies failure to find fault with the fact that Mr. Tony Henry Tormeys Solicitors, did not undertake the instructions given him on our behalf through another Solicitor.

Letter from Tony Watson Solicitor with threat to block my emails in an attempt to quench the truth of what occurred and I believe it an immature approach for a man in his position “Deputy Head of Complaints and Clients Relations Section” to adopt.

I want Justice in this matter and will continue to share my story of Elder Abuse Wide and Far until my demands are met.

You see I believe with every bone in my body that a grave injustice has been served to my elder sister Eileen and I (83 years old) at the hands of the beneficiaries of the Estate and the Solicitors namely Robert Marren, Tony Henry Tormeys Solicitors, Athlone and T & N McLynn Solicitors, Athlone and Tony Watson Solicitor Law Society of Ireland.

I believe that it is they that need explain their reasons for treating my sister and I in the manner that they did.

I feel that the greatest help you can be to me at this time is to condemn this behavior which constitutes #ElderAbuse of the highest order

I would be much obliged if you would email marrensolrs@eircom.net, thenry@tormeys.ie,complaints@lawsociety.ie (no emai address found l for T & N McLynn) and express your dissatisfaction at what has occurred in this matter.

Please Support Michael Gavin Elderly 83 Year Old Irish Farmer by Signing Petition

Our Ref: 22942/l/19/7 and 22943/L/19/7

Dear Mr Gavin,

Despite the fact that both the above enquiry files have been closed, I continue to receive letters and email from you. I refer in particular to your letter of 26 July, and also you lengthy email of 30 July 2015.

You have referred one of these matters to the Independent Adjudicator, and I believe that she has upheld the Society’s decision to reject your complaint. In the circumstances, there is little point in you sending further correspondence and emails to me, as such further correspondence will not receive a reply. Indeed, if you continue to send emails to the Society, I will have no alternative but to block your email address. I do hope that that will not prove necessary.

Your sincerely

Tony Watson

Solicitor

Deputy Head of Complaints and Clients Relations Section

My Response to above

I would argue that although the files are closed that my letter of 26 July, 2015 provides addition crucial evidence against the manner in which Mr. Robert Marren administered the Estate.

I still have difficulty understanding how your investigations did not find fault with the following:

  1. Why was Willie Penrose TD BL not paid for his opinion when the Estate was charged for same?
  2. Why was John Glynn Solicitor not paid? Read Letter to Mr. Marren
  3. Why did Robert Marren Solicitor Mullingar refuse to award me Michael Gavin the Grant monies paid down from the Department of Agriculture?
  4. Why did Robert Marren Solicitor Mullingar refuse to pay me for time spent and services rendered in looking after the Estate animals?
  5. Why did T & N McLynn summon me to the high court in an attempt to sell the roof over my head? knowing full well I had the right to reside there for the rest of my days as per my father’s Will.
  6. Why did Robert Marren Solicitor Mullingar refuse to pay my sister and I the monies from the Auction of the lands immediately?
  7. Why did Robert Marren Solicitor Mullingar pay us €12,500 each less than what we were due for the Land sale?
  8. Why did Robert Marren Solicitor Mullingar not go back to court when there were objections from the beneficiaries that could not be dealt with?
  9. Why did Tony Henry Tormeys Solicitors Athlone not undertake the instructions given him by a Solicitor to prevent Marren closing in isolation to our well founded objections?
  10. Why was an additional accountant hired?
  11. Why did Tony Henry Tormeys Solicitors Athlone write the letter he did to my sister Eileen?
  12. Why has Mr. Marren not provided a “detailed Bill of Costs” for the fees paid to him as he stated he would.
  13. follow this link Bones of Contention for more.

My lengthy email of 30 July 2015  was in response to Mr. Henry of Tormeys Solicitors letter  to my Elderly Defenseless Widowed sister Eileen Linney, who was only seeking justice through your office. Regardless of your findings, Mr. Henry had no right to scribe the letter that he did and his letter is just another example of his inadequate professional service that is not of a quality that could reasonably be expected of a solicitor and in my opinion he is guilty of misconduct by tending to bring the solicitors profession into disrepute. As I have stated before I have every intention of pursuing justice in this mater and will leave no stone unturned until same is forthcoming. Your threat to block my emails will not quench the truth of what occurred and I believe it an immature approach for a man in your position “Deputy Head of Complaints and Clients Relations Section” to adopt. I do hope you will come to your senses in this matter.

Have a Nice Day

It is so nice to see a member of the legal professional acting like a spoilt brat throwing his dummy out of the pram. Bet he stamps his feet too. What a disgrace to a distinguished profession. I’ll bet they are so proud to be associated with someone of his level.”

Please find details of letter Mr. Henry of Tormey Solicitors sent to my Elder Sister Eileen Linney
This is totally unacceptable to us. It is not of the quality that could reasonably be expected of a Solicitor and resembles the act of a cowardly bully picking on a defenseless Elderly widow seeking Justice as the result of his reluctance to undertake a simple basic yet crucial instruction, namely to phone and write Mr. Robert Marren immediately.
Our Family Solicitor called Eileen 12/08/2015 and said Tony Henry Tormeys Solicitors Athlone was on the Phone to him whingeing that we are exposing his letter in the public domain.
Well what else can we do when
Tony Henry of Tormeys Solicitors Athlone would not undertake the instructions given him on our behalf through John Glynn Our Family Solicitor.
Some months back we were informed that the Solicitors in the midlands would not challenge Mr. Robert Marren because he is the son in law of a prominent retired Solicitor from Athlone Aidan O’Carroll. While some Solicitors un the area will entertain the idea of suing Mr. Marren they are reluctant to assist us in preparing grounding affidavits against Marren and Henry in order to file a case against them to the Disciplinary Solicitors Tribunal.
We intend to file cases against Mr. Marren and Mr. Henry to the Disciplinary Solicitors Tribunal as soon as we have the grounding affidavits prepared even if we have to seek assistance overseas to help us prepare them, and we believe Justice will be served there.
Robert Marren Solicitor, Castle Street Mullingar refused to deal with our well founded objections and instead of taking the matter  to court as we instructed him to do he passed the book to me Michael Gavin 83 Years Old, threatening that he would close unless we issued proceedings to prevent him.
Tony Henry then did not contact Marren to object on our behalf as he was instructed, nor did he inform us so we could engage another Solicitor to challenge Mr. Marren.

There are numerous issues that need explaining including the following;

  1. Why was Willie Penrose TD BL not paid for his opinion when the Estate was charged for same?
  2. Why was John Glynn Solicitor not paid? Read Letter to Mr. Marren
  3. Why did Robert Marren Solicitor Mullingar refuse to award me Michael Gavin the Grant monies paid down from the Department of Agriculture?
  4. Why did Robert Marren Solicitor Mullingar refuse to pay me for time spent and services rendered in looking after the Estate animals?
  5. Why did T & N McLynn summon me to the high court in an attempt to sell the roof over my head? knowing full well I had the right to reside there for the rest of my days as per my father’s Will.
  6. Why did Robert Marren Solicitor Mullingar refuse to pay my sister and I the monies from the Auction of the lands immediately?
  7. Why did Robert Marren Solicitor Mullingar pay us €12,500 each less than what we were due for the Land sale?
  8. Why did Robert Marren Solicitor Mullingar not go back to court when there were objections from the beneficiaries that could not be dealt with?
  9. Why did Tony Henry Tormeys Solicitors Athlone not undertake the instructions given him by a Solicitor to prevent Marren closing in isolation to our well founded objections?
  10. Why was an additional accountant hired? against our wishes
  11. Why did Tony Henry Tormeys Solicitors Athlone write the letter he did to my sister Eileen?

I want Justice in this matter and will continue to share my story of Elder Abuse Wide and Far until my demands are met.

You see I believe with every bone in my body that a grave injustice has been served to my elder sister Eileen and I (83 years old) at the hands of the beneficiaries of the Estate and the Solicitors namely Robert Marren,  Tony Henry Tormeys Solicitors, Athlone and T & N McLynn Solicitors, Athlone.

Although what has gone on over the last 10 years is a source of embarrassment for me, I feel that in order to STOP this occurring behind closed doors we need to share it. In the words of Benjamin Franklin

“To Whom it may concern,

I hereby inform you of the following

Inadequate professional service have been provided by Mr Marren, Solicitor and Tony Henry Tormeys Solicitors Athlone  to Michael Gavin & his Sister Eilenn and in my opinion it is not of a quality that could reasonably be expected of a solicitor.

It would appear that Robert Marren Solicitor the Administrator for the Estate of Patrick Gavin refused to compensate Michael Gavin for the 9 years Michael spent minding the Estate Animals and withheld the Grant monies paid down from the Department of Agriculture.

It also appear that Mr Marren did not pay Michael & Eileen their share of the monies from the land Auction and held on to it for nearly 2 years.

It appears that when he did finally pay out the monies for the land auction they were €12,500 less than the amounts due each to them plus interest from the date when Mr. Marren Solicitor received same.

It would appear that Estate assets were squandered

It would appear that Tony Henry of Tormeys Solicitors did not undertake the instructions given him through the family Solicitor to intervene in the matter and contact Mr Marren immediately to prevent him closing in isolation to Objections made by Michael Gavin. Nor did Tony Henry Tormeys Solicitors let it be known that he would not undertake the instruction so another Solicitor could be hired.

It would also appear that there are many unanswered questions that Michael & Eileen are entitled to answers to.

I condemn this type of behaviour. It constitutes Bulling and  Elder Abuse of the highest order and will not go unnoticed.

Your Sincerely

Mr. Concerned that this is permitted to go on! ”

Hello, thank you for visiting my blog. My name is Michael Gavin of Dundonnell, Taughmaconnell, Ballinasloe, Co. Roscommon, Farmer, Bachelor, born in 1932 and currently aged 83 years.

I stand over all the information in this website and affirm it to be the whole truth and nothing but the truth. It records events that took place since my brother Pat Gavin died Intestate on the 10th of October, 2005 some 10 years ago. If you have further questions or need clarification of some of the material contained in this document feel free to contact me, all are welcome.

The information here covers issues arising in the administration of the said Estate by Robert Marren, Solicitor, the Administrator thereof, involving:-

  1. Payments out to me Michael Gavin and my sister Eileen of our shares of the gross proceeds of the deceased’s lands by the Administrator, Robert Marren.
  2. The question of making due and fair provision in the distribution of the cash assets in the Estate for the profits earned by myself Michael Gavin in the rearing of my own and the also the Estates livestock on the lands and/ or in the alternative, making fair allowance to me for work done and services rendered, by me in looking after the deceased’s livestock on the lands for the past 9/10 years since the deceased’s death on the 10th of October, 2005.

Following Pat’s death I Michael Gavin continued on farming the lands and caring for the livestock in exactly the same way as I had done for upward of 40 years previously, in the expectation that I would be allowed continue doing so by the rest of the family. However this was not possible, owing to the enmity between Ann Sanford and Kathleen O’Keeffe towards my sister Eileen and I. Ultimately I was forced to sell off the livestock and surrender the lands for the sale in due course of administration of the Estate.

I was obliged to use my own funds to fund the expenses of running the farm. Catherine O’Connor’s Account Summary shows that throughout the entire farming period between 2005 and 2012 the cattle sales came to a figure of €46,589 and the expenses came to a figure of €45,918. Accourdingly, the expenses in running the farm were almost equal to the proceeds of the sale of the livestock. Therefore, the profits from running the farming operation represented the monies received each year from the Department of Agriculture.

After the Grant of Administration was issued to Mr. Marren in July, 2012 he put pressure on me to sell the stock and make the lands available for sale. Notwithstanding my reluctance to give up farming, I did cooperate with him and accounted for the sale of the animals.

Ultimately the entire lands were offered for sale by public auction on 22nd of February, 2013. The dwelling house which they previously sought to have included in the sale, were excluded from the sale. I tried to buy the lands from the Estate prior to the Auction but they refused and ultimately Anne Sanford bid higher than me at the Auction. It would appear that the price that Anne Sanford and Kathleen O’Keeffe agreed to pay to purchase the lands was a gross overvaluation of the lands having regard to the nature, quality and condition of the lands at the time of purchase on 22nd February, 2013. Both Anne Sanford and Kathleen O’Keeffe subsequently visited me a number of times requesting that I purchase the lands for their winning bid price which I refused to do stating they had paid over one hundred thousand euros too much for the land. In or around the beginning of May, 2013 Kathleen O’Keeffe telephoned me advising that the lands were to be put up again for sale and that I Michael Gavin was to have a first option to purchase same. However, this did not take place and instead, it would appear that Anne Sanford and Kathleen O’Keeffe got the next of kin, namely Theresa Harte, and the Duffy family disclaim/release their shares in the deceased’s Estate to them, so that effectively, they could put forward a proposal to simply buy out my sister Eileen’s 1/6th and my 1/6th share in the property at the value of the property as determined at the Auction. Allowance were made for them to do the same on the condition that the total 1/6th share would be paid forthwith and that the costs of the incidental to the sale to include all Solicitors fees, Auctioneers fees and Engineers fees would be discharged solely by the Purchasers at their own expense and that I Michael Gavin be allowed have the use of the lands for the rest of my natural life, without interference from the Purchasers.

*14/03/2013 Marren to Gavin confirming that he had made a decision to accept the claim of Michael Gavin to ownership of half the cattle and all the sheep and confirming that the accounts would be prepared by Catherine O’Connor and approved by the Independent Accountant and accepted liability and also seeking a refund of the sum of €4,000 deducted by Michael Gavin on behalf of Feely Stone, Boyle on the basis that he was under the impression Michael Gavin was paid twice for this amount and also seeking payment for half the remaining livestock on the lands;

On 14th March 2013 received a letter from Mr Robert Marren of Robert B. Marren & Co. Solicitors stating in the third paragraph

“Having consider matters, I have made a decision that I will accept the claim of Michael that he owns half the livestock and all the sheep. The Accounts as prepare by Catherine O’Connor and approved by the Independent Accountant will be accepted on that basis. This will enable the Estate to finalize the Income Tax liability which needs to be done as soon as possible.”

Yet Mr Marren Solicitor refuses to award me Michael Gavin his share of the grants paid down from the Department of Agriculture.

In my response letter to Mr Marren on 28th March 2013 I stated in the fourth paragraph

“Finally, as the farming operation between me and my late brother, Patrick was a joint operation on the basis that we shared everything, I also require payment of half the proceeds of the single Payment Entitlements and Disadvantaged Area Grants paid or payable by the Department of Agriculture in respect of the lands be paid to me in return for the services rendered by me on behalf of the Estate in looking after both the deceased and my own animals and which sum would also represent the profit which I would derive from farming the lands on a 50/50 basis, as otherwise I would have been wasting my time looking after my late brother’s animals or in having and maintaining my own animals on the lands. I consider that this is an unreasonable request for settlement of this matter as if I proceed in the alternative on the basis of a claim for work done and services rendered under The Agricultural Wages Act I would be entitle to a far greater sum of monies than I am now seeking.”

28-03-2013 Gavin to Marren pointing out that the sum of €4,000 had not been deductrd by Mr. Glynn, Solicitor in respect of the amount due to Messrs. Feehily Stone, Boyle and also requesting that if his sisters were prepared to let the lands to him at a reasonable price that he would be prepared purchase the remaining animals from the Estate and finally, seeking payment of half the Single Payment Entitlements on the basis that these payments represented the profits from farming the lands, that he was entitled to 50% of same;

**05/07/13 Marron to Gavin and Linney enclosing copy letter dated 3rd of July, 2013 from T & N McLynn, Solicitors on behalf of Sanford and O’Keefe stating that purchasers were prepared to discharge Messrs Gavin & Linney’s share of the expenses in connection with the sale and confirming that their clients were not prepared to take up Michael Gavin’s offer to purchase;

05/12/14 Michael Gavin to Marren & Co., in reply to their letter of the 11th of November, incorporating claim of Michael Gavin to half Single Payment Entitlements, after deductions of Income Tax paid by the Estate on farming income, together with claim for payment of half agricultural wages due to Michael Gavin for minding the deceased’s livestock from 10th of October, 2005 to 27th of May, 2013, less allowances for half letting value of lands, together with the following:

  1. Schedule incorporating particulars of claim;
  2. Schedule of wages due under the Statutory Minimum Remuneration of Agriculture Workers for the period from 10/10/99 to 27/05/13

05/12/14 Marren & Co., to Michael Gavin advising that unless he was in receipt of legal proceedings instituted before the 19th of December, he intended to proceed with the distribution of the Estate;

22/12/14 Marren to Gavin threatening that unless he heard from Gavin’s Solicitor by 16th of January, next that Mr. Gavin intended to institute proceedings, that he would precede with the proposed distribution, as previously advised.

***14/01/2015 John Glynn Patrick Hogan & Co. to Tony Henry Tormeys Solicitors, Athlone requesting him to ring and write a short letter to Mr. Marren immediately confirming that he would act in the matter in response to Marrens threat to effect a distribution of the Estate.

Michael,
I’ve read you e-mails & blog and view your online video.
It is clear that you were very badly advised in the past not to have ensured that both you and your brother made a will to protect both sets of rights.
While there is no doubt that there are questions regarding the management of this case, the only way that these can be resolved and rectified is by the Courts.
In my 18 years in politics I have not nor will I become involved in family disputes of this nature because, in my experience, everybody loses and the only real winners are the barristers & their bank accounts.
I think that arbitration may have been useful at an earlier stage, but this ultimately is a dispute between the various beneficiaries of the will.
I’m sorry but I cannot be of assistance to you with regard to this matter.
I’m also sending a copy of this e-mail to your nephew, who has also made contact with me, on your behalf.
Yours sincerely,

My Respone email as follows:

Denis,

Totally agree with you the only way that these can be resolved and rectified is by the Courts

However it was Mr. Robert Marren Solicitor the administrator for the Estate that should have taken the matter to the courts to have a Judge decide not demand the Elderly Beneficiaries to issue proceedings when there were objection.

Tony Henry Tormeys Solicitors did nothing except sit on the files for 3 months. He was instructed by John Glynn Solicitor to write and phone Marren immediately to prevent him closing.

It appears that he too wanted to play God in the matter. Why if he was not prepared to act on our behalf did he not phone us and say so. A Solicitor not undertaken an instruction is a very very serious matter and many have been disciplined for same in the past according to the records on line which are referred to in the blog.

I doubt very much that Marren or Henry would work for nothing yet they appear to think that they have a right to play God in my case.

John Glynn helped us write many a letter to Marren on unheaded paper pointing out the fact that he should seek a court order to direct how the Estate should be Administrated.

Thank you for taking the time to read the blog!

However in view of the fact that you did, how can Marren holding on my 1/6 share and my sisters 1/6 share of the monies from the land sale for nearly 2 years be explained??

There is no good reason why Marren did not pay these monies to us when he received them!

What he did pay out in the end was €12,500 short of what we were entitled to plus interest with no acceptable explanation to date as to why he did same.

It appears he also refuses also to pay John Glynn the money he claims some €50k plus for his services…yet he had no issue paying T&N Mc lynn a year or so prior to closing.

Why do they continually scourge me with their petty battles, what has it got to do with me? and why does Marren threaten Eileen and I that he will not pay John Glynn bill while we seek justice through the law society. How are they related??

We are now told Willie Penrose was not paid, not that we were ever given an invoice for his services, but Marren did deduct for it.

Eileen and i never met with Penrose and we only met with Marren once and all he wanted to discuss was us making our wills….what had that got to do with the Administration of my late brothers Estate, or what business was it of his anyway whether we had our will made or not.

It would appear that because Marren is the Son in Law of Aidan O’Carroll a prominent retired Solicitor in Athlone that none of the Solicitors in the Midland are prepared to act on our behalf.

However we intend to expose the INJUSTICE and ELDER ABUSE we have been subjected too in the public domain and thereby encourage more in our situation to stand up to the Bully Boy tactics lies and deceit that our justice system is riddled with.

I am 83 year of age and I do not deserve to be treated in this fashion. I have worked hard all my life and never wronged any man and if a pair of white bellied bast***S think they can take advantage of my Elder Widowed sister and I they have another thing coming.

Did you have a chance to read the repulsive letter Tony Henry of Tormeys Solicitor sent to Eileen yesterday(copy attached), we were deprived of sleep and up half the night scribbling a response to same. They call them selves educated and he had the cheek to  criticizes my signature, what has he a scratch of a line get more from a 2 year old, at least mine spells out my GOOD name.

Tony-Henry-Tormeys-Solicitors-Signature

We are not satisfied with the service on offer in this country to deal with this Injustice and Elder Abuse and as far as we are concerned a country that does not look after its Elderly is no country. To date the only real sympathy and support we have received is from the ordinary people while the rest of yea pluck out one excuse or another as to why yea cannot or do not help out in these matters. Well yea wont sweep this under the carpet and hide away from the facts we have copies of all the correspondence and recall  what went on.

Have a nice day!

Please Support Michael Gavin Elderly 83 Year Old Irish Farmer by Signing Petition

My sister Eileen just received a letter today 29-July-2015 from Tony Henry Tormeys Solicitors Athlone stating the following;

Dear Ms Linney

I refer to your note dated the 16th of June, 2015. We have now taken up our old file from long term storage in relation to your brother’s papers. We note that the original papers were collected by you.

It is clear from the meetings that we have had with your brother and indeed the documentation that we received from Patrick Hogan & Company that there is little that your brother could do to protect his interest other than to issue proceeding which, as we pointed out to you during our meeting with you and your brother, would be lengthy and very risky in terms of significant legal costs.

In terms of receiving direct instructions from your brother, this did not happen and any communication that we received was clearly from you with your brother’s signature on some of the letters. This is not sufficient for any legal firm to take definitive instructions.

We outlined in our meeting with you and your brother that it would not appear that proceedings were appropriate, for so many reasons. This clearly is something that you may disagree with, however, we were seeking to advise your brother in relation to his legal position.

It is clear that the unfortunate consequences for your brother Michael resulted from your late brother Patrick Gavin not making a will.

Your brother is of course free to make a complaint to the Law Society and we will respond to any complaints direct to the Law Society. We are satisfied that they are no grounds for such a complaint. There is no question of us covering your brother’s costs and we utterly and categorically reject any suggestion of negligence on our part and indeed are most aggrieved that you would suggest this.

We have nothing to apologise for and indeed, we have never, at any stage, suggested that we would take any course of action and certainly we were never purporting to represent.

It is my firm belief that your brother should take stock before he would instruct any solicitor to issue proceedings on his behalf in this issue. The risks associated with taking such an action would be huge as well as the stress and pressure that would be involved in taking such proceedings.

It is clear to me that the dispute and contention surrounding the administration of your late brother’s estate has caused significant stress, worry and anger for your brother, for you and members of your family. However, it is totally inappropriate and unfair for you to suggest that Tormeys Solicitors have not carried out their duties. Your brother has every entitlement to seek alternative representation, but we would still be of the view that your brother Michael should think very, very carefully before committing himself to further risky and protracted legal battles in relation to your brother Patrick’s estate.

I certainly hope that your brother Michael can move on with his life with the inheritance already received from the estate.

Your Faithfully

1st Paragraph from Tony Henry Tormeys Solicitors Athlone

“I refer to your note dated the 16th of June, 2015. We have now taken up our old file from long term storage in relation to your brother’s papers. We note that the original papers were collected by you.”

My response to above paragraph

This is the first correspondence we ever received from Mr. Tony Henry’s Office Tormeys Solicitors Athlone. It has taken more that 40 days for Mr. Tony Henry, Tormey Solicitors to respond to our letter dated 16th of June 2015.

The cheek of you to refer to my Elder sister’s letter as a note, don’t you Mr. Henry of Tormeys Solicitors attempt to belittle us.

Here is a copy of that letter sent to Mr. Henry Tormey’s Solicitors 16th June, 2015

Mr Henry,

I am writing to inform you that I am filing complaints against you to the Law Society. I am not satisfied at how you dealt with the following:

  1. Letter from John Glynn Solicitor, Patrick Hogan & Co. dated 14th January, 2015;
  2.  Letter from my brother Michael Gavin and I on 6th February, 2015.

My demands are simply this

  1. You agree to cover costs that my brother Michael Gavin and I incur as a result of your gross negligence which have yet to be determined.
  2.  Letter of apology to me, acknowledging the inadequate professional service you have provided, and the conscious and intentional disregard you displayed through your gross misconduct in failing to undertake the instructions made on our behalf by our family solicitor John Glynn, Patrick Hogan & Co. Ballinasloe, Co. Galway.

Yours faithfully,

Yes my sister did collect the papers from your office because you sat on same for over 70 days from the 15th of January 2015 when you received them from John Glynn’s office Patrick Hogan & Co. Solicitors Ballinasloe until the end of March and did nothing as far as we are concerned. Why would you want to keep our original papers or a copy of and substantial Case to Counsel files when you were not prepared to undertake the explicate instructions that John Glynn’s office Patrick Hogan & Co. Solicitors gave you verbally in around December 2014 and in writing received in your office 15TH January, 2015. It begs the question why your office bothers to solicit business by advertising extensively on Midland Radio, when it appears that yea are unable to undertake serious clients instructions at hand that we give to your office by a Solicitor for a client. This is a serious matter and there is no point in you stating otherwise.

2nd Paragraph from Tony Henry Tormeys Solicitors Athlone

“It is clear from the meetings that we have had with your brother and indeed the documentation that we received from Patrick Hogan & Company that there is little that your brother could do to protect his interest other than to issue proceeding which, as we pointed out to you during our meeting with you and your brother, would be lengthy and very risky in terms of significant legal costs.”

My response to above paragraph

We had one and only 1 meeting not meetings as you Mr. Tony Henry put it. As I recall that 2 hour meeting took place in a conference room at Tormeys Solicitors Offices, Athlone on the 30th January 2015 some 15 days after Mr. Marren Solicitor had distributed the Estate assets on the 16th of January 2015. We had no knowledge that Mr. Marren actually went ahead and distributed the Estate Assets on the 16th of January until we received our cheques in the post, up until then we assumed that you had undertaken the instructions that you Mr. Henry received from Patrick Hogan & Company. These instruction were as follows

Letter from Patrick Hogan & Company received in Tormeys Solicitors Office on 15TH January 2015

I spoke to you about this matter before Christmas and am now enclosing herewith in duplicate a Case to Counsel (to the intent that there is one copy for yourself and the other for Counsel) incorporating all relevant details relative to this matter.

I would suggest you read the Case and arrange a meeting with Michael Gavin to verify all instructions received before transmitting same to Counsel, for the purpose of ensuring that I have accurately expressed his views and wishes in the matter.

Secondly, I would suggest that you would retain Donal Keane BL, to represent our mutual clients as he is already familiar with the case, having represented Messrs. Gavin & Linney in the prior action taken by Ann Sanford, to have herself appointed as Administrator of the Estate. The only possible difficulty here is that he nominated Bob Marren and telephoned him to ask him would he be willing to act as Administrator, and accordingly, there may be some little reluctance on his part to be further involved if the proceedings involve joining Bob Marren as a Co-Defendant to same. I take the view that it is inevitable that Robert Marren will be jointed as a Co-Defendant, even though the trust and purpose of the proceedings will be to coerce Messrs. Sanford and O’Keeffe to authorise him to pay over the purchase monies forthwith to Messrs. Gavin & Linney and also to concede that Mike Gavin is entitled to 50% of the profits of the lands and/or, in the alternative, fair compensation for the work done and services rendered by him over an eight year period for and on behalf of the Estate.

Thirdly, having regard to the contents of Mr. Marren’s letter to Mike Gavin, dated the 22nd of December, 2014 whereby he is threatening to effect a distribution of the Estate if he does not receive formal notification from Mike Gavin’s Solicitor of his intention to institute proceedings on or before the 16th of January, next, you had best forthwith write a short letter to Robert Marren & Co., confirming that you are now acting in the matter and that you are in process of sending a Case to Counsel.

Finally, for the purpose of endeavoring to avoid further proceedings in the matter, I would suggest that you immediately telephone Robert Marren to advice him that you have received instructions to act and enquire just where exactly does he stand in this matter and enquire whether or not his hands are tied by instructions received from Messrs Sanford & O’Keefe and/or their Solicitors Messrs T & N McLynn. In particular enquire if he concedes that Michael is entitled to half the farming profits (i.e. half the net proceeds of the Department of Agriculture Grants from 2005-2013 inclusive, after deductions of Income Tax paid in respect of the joint farming operation) and /or in the alternative, fair compensation for work done and services rendered by Mike Gavin in looking after the deceased’s animals over this period. Please also enquire why is he not paying out the sum of €82,500 to Mike and Eileen in respect of their 1/6th share of the lands, particularly, now seeing that Messrs. Sanford & O’Keeffe have taken possession of the lands and are letting same for their own benefit and/or he has allowed them into possession of the lands and seeing that he has the purchase monies in his account which Mike and Eileen are agreeable to unconditionally accept in respect of their 1/6 share of the proceeds of sale. Moreover an up to date folio search reveals that the lands have been transferred to Messrs. Sanford & O’Keefe sometime prior to 15th November 2014.

Finally, I do hope that you will see your way to taking this case in the interest of securing justice for Mike and Eileen, whose interest in this matter are being abused by two very vengeful and spiteful sisters, who have already put the Estate to enormous legal expense and whom I have no doubt would be prepared to waste futher assets of the Estate in further litigation.

Yours sincerely,

John V. Glynn

So it appears from the letter above from John Glynn Patrick Hogan & Co. Ballinasloe that he did call you Mr. Tony Henry before Christmas and he did request you Mr. Tony Henry, Tormeys Solictors Athlone to act on our behalf numerous times.

How can you attempt to excuse your failure to carry out the explicate instruction given both verbally and in writing from another Solicitor with “it was clear from our meetings that we have had with your brother” bearing that this one and only meeting occurred some weeks after Mr. Marren distributed the Estate Assets. So what was the purpose of you holding the 2 hour meeting? It appears that you ignored John Glynn’s instructions and played God at our expense. Why did you not pick up the phone as requested and tell Mr. Robert Marren and confirm that you were acting in the matter as you were instructed to do? In the alternative if you felt that based on the documentation you received from Patrick Hogan & Company that there was little you could do why did you not pick up the phone and call me or John Glynn, Solicitor and give us an opportunity to request another Solicitor to act for us. Your reluctance Mr. Tony Henry, Tormey Solicitor to undertake the instruction given you by another Solicitor to act on our behalf is totally unacceptable to me. I have difficulty understanding why you Mr. Henry of Tormeys Solicitors, Athlone failed to respond to correspondence, including correspondence that was crucial and significant to my sister Eileen and I.

3rd Paragraph from Tony Henry Tormeys Solicitors Athlone

In terms of receiving direct instructions from your brother, this did not happen and any communication that we received was clearly from you with your brother’s signature on some of the letters. This is not sufficient for any legal firm to take definitive instructions.”

My response to above paragraph;

Mr. Henry might I remind you, that you received 3 letters from my sister and I. The first on the 06-02-2015 were direct instructions signed by both of us as follows

Dear Tony,

Further to our meeting of 30th January 2015, my brother and I had time to discuss the matter and would like to give you the following instructions.   We instruct you to write a letter to Mr Robert Marren requesting answers to the following:

  1. Please explain why we were not awarded €82,500 each for our one sixth share in the Land Sale. The purchase money was paid to Mr Marren on 27th May 2013.
  2.  Please explain why €3,764.91 was deducted from Eileen’s share, which was stated on Mr Marren’s distribution account that 50% Of share of livestock handed over on closing Sale of Lands. Eileen  did not own any animals.
  3.  Where is the refund of €1,400.00 which was paid by Mike Gavin to Mr John Glynn on 23rd February 2007 on account of outlay to meet expenses in taking out a Grant of Administration. This sum has not been taken into account on the revised distribution account which Mr Marren refers to in his letter dated 11th November 2014 to Michael Gavin.
  4.  We would like a breakdown of how the figure of €40,892.53 representing fees paid to Robert Marren & Co. were arrived at. Similarly we would like a breakdown of fees paid to Catherine O’Connor, Tony McLynn (Solicitor for the other side), Willie Penrose, (why was it necessary to get his advices). Please advise us of any outstanding bills, has John Glynn, Hogan & Co. been paid to date, and if not why not.
  5.  Has the House and adjoining gardens been transferred to Ann Sanford and Kathleen O’ Keefe? We were assured in 2 letters dated 15th Nov 2012 and 7th Dec 2012 from Mr Marron that the dwelling house and the lands (approx ½ acre) surrounding same would be excluded from the sale.
  6.  Please explain how you arrived at your decision to award the moneys received from the sale of Pat Gavin’s livestock together with the Gross payments received from the Department of Agriculture without deducting any expense for the minding, looking after, feeding and caring for the animals for the nine years from 2005 to 2014.
  7.  Also please explain why you did not award Mike Gavin half of the Grant Money from the Department of Agriculture after making a decision in your letter on 14th of March 2013 to accept the claim of Michael to owning half the livestock and all the sheep.

Eileen Linney                                                                        Michael Gavin

You go on to say “and any communication that we received was clearly from you with your brother’s signature on some of the letters.” WHAT DO YOU MEAN “from you” perhaps you mean that my sister Eileen hand typed the letter as above the same way I presume a Secretary at Tormeys Solicitors typed the 1 and only letter you posted to us. Or perhaps our instructions to request answers to our questions from Mr. Robert Marren, Mullingar made you uncomfortable. Regardless I can assure you that answers to those questions are more beneficial to me personally than to my sister Eileen, so what is your problem? Maybe it’s a woman’s persistent efforts to seek justice that make you uncomfortable. Also my signature was provided as I recall and in the event that it was not why only now do you mention it and not before now. I have to agree with you Mr. Tony Henry, Tormeys Solicitors Athlone “This is not sufficient for any legal firm to take definitive instructions”.

You may consider yourself educated and yet you have the cheek to  criticizes my signature, what is your but a scratch of a line, get more from a 2 year old, at least mine spells out my GOOD name.

Tony-Henry-Tormeys-Solicitors-Signature

We subsequently followed up with you on the 3rd of March 2015 with a hand written letter/note and stated the following;

Sign the petition

Please Support Michael Gavin Elderly 83 Year Old Irish Farmer by Signing Petition

Dear Mr. Henry,

With reference to my letter dated 6th February 2015 to you with instructions to write a letter to Mr. Robert Marren, could you please inform me when can I expect a reply from you.

Thanking you

Sincerely

Eileen

And

Michael Gavin

We have a signed copy of this letter if you need same to refresh your memory!

Then of course the letter sent to you on 16th June, 2015 as above was indeed sent from my sister Eileen alone informing you that she was filing complaints against you to the Law Society. These complaints covered

  1. Letter from John Glynn Solicitor, Patrick Hogan & Co. dated 14th January, 2015;
  2.  Letter from my brother Michael Gavin and I on 6th February, 2015.

These complaints clearly cover concerns we both have in relation to our dissatisfied at how you dealt with the above. This may now also explain the attitude you have towards my sister, regardless we both have the right to file complaints with the Law Society of Ireland and seek justice in this matter for the blatant disregard you had for our instructions given to you through a Solicitor.

4th Paragraph from Tony Henry Tormeys Solicitors Athlone

“We outlined in our meeting with you and your brother that it would not appear that proceedings were appropriate, for so many reasons. This clearly is something that you may disagree with, however, we were seeking to advise your brother in relation to his legal position.”

My response to above paragraph

In our one and only meeting with you Mr. Tony Henry on the 30th January 2015 some 15 days after Mr. Marren Solicitor had distributed the Estate assets on the 16th of January 2015, because you Mr. Tony Henry failed to undertake explicate instructions namely to inform Mr. Rober Marren, Solicitor Mullingar that you would act in the matter for us. As we recall you did carry out the devil’s advocate routine with us which is customary in these situations. We recall you warning us of the downsides of up to 3 years with costs up to €100,000 with no guarantees of winning and my age 83 years. Then you went on to describe how if we did engage you as our Solicitor, you would put your shoulder to the wheel and keep the letters and meetings to a minimum.

Bearing in mind the fact that you had not undertaken out our original instructions it seemed contradictory now that you were prepared to put your shoulder to the wheel at our expense.

Why do you isolate my sister Eileen after John Glynn, Solicitor requested that you would see your way to taking this case in the interest of securing justice for Mike and Eileen, this also seemed strange to us at our meeting, and here again in your letter.

2 hours free advice in a Solicitors office?? Appears something strange here!

5th Paragraph from Tony Henry Tormeys Solicitors Athlone

It is clear that the unfortunate consequences for your brother Michael resulted from your late brother Patrick Gavin not making a will.

While your above statement is true, that does not give you Mr. Tony Henry an excuse to not undertake the explicate instructions given you by a Solicitor on our behalf. There is no getting away from the fact that John Glynn Patrick Hogan & Co. requested you to ring and write a short letter to Mr. Marren immediately confirming that you would act in the matter in response to Marren’s threat to effect a distribution of the Estate. Nor is there a logical reason as to why you did not inform us, so that we could engage another Solicitor to act on our behalf . We are of the opinion that a grave injustice has been dealt to both my sister Eileen and I and it constitutes Elder Abuse.

6th Paragraph from Tony Henry Tormeys Solicitors Athlone

“Your brother is of course free to make a complaint to the Law Society and we will respond to any complaints direct to the Law Society. We are satisfied that there are no grounds for such a complaint. There is no question of us covering your brother’s costs and we utterly and categorically reject any suggestion of negligence on our part and indeed are most aggrieved that you would suggest this.”

Here again you isolate Eileen as if she has incurred no loss at the hand of Mr. Rober Marren. Let me refer you back to John Glynn’s letter which states “Please also esquire why is he not paying out the sum of €82,500 to Mike and Eileen in respect of their 1/6th share of the lands” and our first question that we request you pose to Mr. Marren on our behalf

  1. Please explain why WE were not awarded €82,500 each for our one sixth share in the Land Sale. The purchase money was paid to Mr Marren on 27th May 2013.

Please explain why WE meaning both of us. Surely you recall we also made that point clear to you at the meeting that Mr. Marren had short chained us by €12,500 each, notwithstanding the fact that he had the monies in his possession for nearly 2 years prior and refused to hand over same in isolation to closing the estate.

We believe that Mr. Robert Marren should NOT have finalised the distribution without addressing our objections, and it appears he did same to avoid paying our €82,500 1/6 share of the land from action in isolation to the rest of the estate.

While it would appear that these are matters that can only be dealt with by the court if they cannot be resolved by agreement I believe it should be the Administrator who goes back into Court to get a Court Order directing how the estate can be distributed not the ELDERLY BENEFICIARIES.

While it goes without saying that I have every right to  make a complaint to the Law Society, this would be pointless bearing in mind that my complains are one in the same as my sister’s. So in the event that the Law Society of Ireland does not accept that our/my sisters 2 complaints of inadequate professional services, warrant investigation and which are already overseen by the independent Adjudicator we will proceed to the solicitors disciplinary tribunal Dublin. Although this whole matter is a source of embarrassment to us, we will have no hesitation in disclosing same in the public domain, as it is our belief that the general public have a right to be made aware of the events that took place and let them judge for themselves based on the true facts.

7th Paragraph from Tony Henry Tormeys Solicitors Athlone

We have nothing to apologies for and indeed, we have never, at any stage, suggested that we would take any course of action and certainly we were never purporting to represent.

My response to above paragraph

Thank you. That’s the problem you Mr. Henry never did represent us, nor did you inform us so we could engage another Solicitor to act on our behalf.

It would also appear to us Mr. Henry of Tormeys Solicitors, Athlone that you facilitated Mr. Marren by not phoning him or writing him immediately as requested by John Glynn Solicitor.

8th Paragraph from Tony Henry Tormeys Solicitors Athlone

“It is my firm belief that your brother should take stock before he would instruct any solicitor to issue proceedings on his behalf in this issue. The risks associated with taking such an action would be huge as well as the stress and pressure that would be involved in taking such proceedings.”

My response to above paragraph

What concern is it of yours Mr. Henry Tormey what stress and pressure I can enjure. We have a saying in the country keep prodding at an old stone wall and it will eventually give!

9th Paragraph from Tony Henry Tormeys Solicitors Athlone

“It is clear to me that the dispute and contention surrounding the administration of your late brother’s estate has caused significant stress, worry and anger for your brother, for you and members of your family. However, it is totally inappropriate and unfair for you to suggest that Tormeys Solicitors have not carried out their duties. Your brother has every entitlement to seek alternative representation, but we would still be of the view that your brother Michael should think very, very carefully before committing himself to further risky and protracted legal battles in relation to your brother Patrick’s estate.”

My response to above paragraph

What duties did Tormeys Solicitors carry out ?

What duties did Tormeys Solicitors carry out ?

That’s the whole problem you Mr. Tony Henry of Tormeys Solicitor carried out NO duties in relation to the instruction John Glynn, Solicitor made on our behalf, nor did you undertake the instruction my sister and I gave you Mr, Tony Henry, namely to demand Mr. Robert Marren to provide answers to 7 important questions.

Who are you to lecture my sister Eileen or I on our entitlements to seek alternative representation while knowing full well that Mr. Marren is the son in law of a prominent retired Athlone Solicitor and we were advised that Solicitor in the midlands would be reluctant to act on our behalf because of same. We both have every intention of seeking JUSTICE in this matter and will leave no stone unturned until same is served. Far be it from me a humble farmer to JUDGE you Mr. Henry as you did us, but what gives you the athority to scribe the letter that you did to my defenless ELDERLY WIDOWED sister Eileen Linney, who sought nothing but JUSTICE for us. I Michael Gavin from Dundonnell, Taughmaconnell Co. Roscommon will not wish you any bad luck, however I will not wish you any good luck either.

I am of the view that it is you Mr. Tony Henry of Tormeys Solictors Athlone should consider your position very, very, very carefully before exposing yourself to further risky and protracted legal battles not to mention the reputation of Tormeys Solicitors in the eyes of concerned public onlookers.

We both feel that a grave injustice has been dealt to us not to mention the Bully Boy tactics and ELDER ABUSE we received and we intend to pursue the matter VIGOROUSLY until same is undone.

We believe it’s high time that you Mr.Tony Henry hang up your boots as they forced me to do mine. We feel that an inadequate professional service has been provided by Mr. Robert Marren, Solicitor, Mullingar, Co. Westmeath and you Mr. Tony Henry, Tormeys Solicitor, Athlone, Co. Westmeath and it is not of a quality that could reasonably be expected of Solicitors.

10th Paragraph from Tony Henry Tormeys Solicitors Athlone

“I certainly hope that your brother Michael can move on with his life with the inheritance already received from the estate.”

My response to above paragraph

Here you go again writing to my sister Eileen and referring your advice to me Michael Gavin. Why would you hope that I can move on with my life? or do you mean so that you can move on with yours and just pretend that this never occurred.
It begs the question would you Mr. Henry move on with yours, would you work for nothing for 9 years and then have your objections ignored by both the administrator and the solicitor who was instructed to block same from happening with a simple phone call??

My sister Eileen and I refuse to allow you Mr. Henry and Mr. Robert Marren move on with your life’s in isolation to what has occurred in this matter until our demands are met.

Have a nice day!

Please Support Michael Gavin Elderly 83 Year Old Irish Farmer by Signing Petition

Dear Justice Mary Laffoy,

I am writing to give you to inform you of what happened after my special summons to the High court 9th of March , 2010. In the matter of the Estate of Patrick Gavin between Ann Sanford plaintiff and Eileen Linney and Michael Gavin defendants.

I am not satisfied with the manner in which the administration of the Estate was conducted by Robert Marren, Solicitor, Mullingar and I refer you to the enclosed documents which were sent to Mr. Tony Watson, Solicitor, Deputy Head of Complaints and Client Relations Section at Law Society of Ireland. Ref: 22942/L/19/7

I also have issues with Tony Henry, Tormeys Solicitors, Athlone for not undertaking the written and verbal instructions that were given him by another Solicitor on my behalf, namely to ring and or write Mr. Robert Marren, Solicitor, Mullingar. Please also refer to the complaints sent to Mr. Tony Watson, Solicitor, Deputy Head of Complaints and Client Relations Section at Law Society of Ireland. Ref: 22943/L/19/7 in relation to this matter.

It would appear that Mr. Henry, Tormeys Solicitors, Athlone did not undertake the instructions as requested nor did he see fit to inform us so that we could engage another Solicitor to prevent Mr. Marren, Solicitor distributing the Estate with no regard to our objections, namely to pay my sister Eileen and I the correct amount for our 1/6 share from the proceeds of the land Auction Sale, monies that were in Mr. Marren’s possession for nearly 2 years prior. Also to compensate me Michael Gavin for my work done and services rendered for the 9 years I spent looking after the Estates animals. Mr. Robert Marren, refused to award me the grant monies paid down from the Department of Agriculture and instead of going back into Court and get a Court Order directing how the estate can be distributed, Mr. Marren, Solicitor, Mullingar passed the book to my Elder sister Eileen and I and demanded court proceeding to prevent the distribution.

I do hope you can see your way to expressing your views in this matter, as I am now 83 year old and of the opinion that a grave injustice has been dealt to both my sister Eileen and I and it constitutes Elder Abuse.

Yours Sincerely

Michael Gavin

Ref: 22943/L/19/7

Dear Mr. Watson,

I am writing to inform you that over the weekend I was informed from an activist via social media that Willie Penrose TD BL stated he had not received his payment from Robert Marren, Solicitor, Mullingar. I was also informed that he stated “He did not give a sh.. about my campaign to seek justice in the matter”

Please find attached the previous letters I sent you in relation to my complaints.

“Complaint No 6

My sixth complaint is based on Mr. Marrens response to my sixth question to him on 13-04-2015

My sixth question to you on 13-04-2015 was

I would like a breakdown of how the figure of €40,892.53 representing fees paid to Robert Marren & Co. were arrived at. Similarly I would like a breakdown of fees paid to Catherine O’Connor, Tony McLynn (Solicitor for the other side), Willie Penrose, (why was it necessary to get his advices). Please advise me of any outstanding bills, has John Glynn, Hogan & Co. been paid to date, and if not why not.

And Mr. Marren’s Response

William Penrose B.L. advices were sought in relation to the sale of lands.

My Objection to his response was

I am also still intrigued to know what advices William Penrose B.L. had in relation to the sale of lands that cost the Estate €1,230, and have a good mind to question him individually also on his fee. Mr. Marren to date has not provided details or invoice copy of William Penrose’s bill.”

 So it begs the question was Willie Penrose paid and if he was I am entitled to be furnished with an invoice and explanation of what advice he offered.

In the alternative if what Mr. Willie Penrose states is true that he was not paid, then how come Mr. Marren, Solicitor is permitted to charge the Estate of my late brother Patrick Gavin €1230 for advice? I would strongly urge you again to reinvestigate this matter.

Here again we appear to have another example of Mr. Roberts Marren’s reluctance to pay. This is reminiscent of the manner in which he dealt with paying out our 1/6 share from the sale of the Estate lands. Here again despite our persistent requests Mr. Robert Marren refused to pay out same until finalising the distribution during the Christmas period 2014-2015, WITHOUT ADDRESSING OUR OBJECTIONS, and it appears he did same to avoid paying our 1/6 share of the land from auction in isolation to the rest of the estate, notwithstanding the fact that the moneys for same were in Mr. Marren’s possession nearly 2 years previously. He has yet to provide a reasonable explanation of why he did not “bite the bullet” and pay over the full amount when Mr. Robert Marren received the funds way back on 27th of May 2013. Please also refer to my previous letter to you dated 11/07/2015 pointing out the fact that Mr. Marren refuses to pay John Glynn, Solicitor, Patrick Hogan & Co. until we stop threatening him as he puts it by reporting him to the Law Society of Ireland.

We do not consider our reporting Mr. Robert Marren, Solicitor, Mullingar to the Law Society a threat. We have every right to seek justice for the unjust and unfair way we have been dealt with and taken advantage of considering our age (83), by Mr. Robert Marren the administrator and the beneficiaries of the Estate to the extent that it constitutes ELDER ABUSE.

We have not received a response to the letter dated 01-07-2015, and I would assume that your office is still investigating our complaints in regard to Mr. Robert Marren, Solicitor, Mullingar, Co. Westmeath Ref: 22942/L/19/7 and Mr. Tony Henry Tormeys Solicitors, Athlone, Co. Westmeath Ref: 2943/L/19/7.

My sister Eileen received a call to her mobile phone last week from the private no of Ms Carol Ann Casey Adjudicator, requesting permission to adjudicate the matter. Eileen and I are unsure as to how her mobile no was obtained or what adjudicating the matter will achieve.

My sister Eileen was recently informed by a Solicitor in Athlone that he would not act on our behalf because Robert Marren was the son in law of a prominent retired Solicitor, who was handing over chairmanship of certain clubs and societies too. He advise us to go east or west but not around the midlands.

With that in mind we would appreciate if the Law Society of Ireland could suggest an ethical solicitor that would be prepared to write up a grounding affidavit against Mr. Robert Marren, Solicitor, Mullingar, Co. Westmeath and a separate grounding affidavit against Mr. Tony Henry, Tormeys Solicitor, Athlone, Co. Westmeath for the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal.

We both feel that a grave injustice has been dealt to us not to mention the Bully Boy tactics and ELDER ABUSE we received and we intend to pursue the matter VIGOROUSLY until same is undone.

We believe it’s high time that Marren and Henry hang up their boots as they forced me to do mine. We feel that an inadequate professional service has been provided by Mr. Robert Marren, Solicitor, Mullingar, Co. Westmeath and Mr. Tony Henry, Tormeys Solicitor, Athlone, Co. Westmeath and it is not of a quality that could reasonably be expected of Solicitors.

Your Faithfully

Michael,
I’ve read you e-mails & blog and view your online video.
It is clear that you were very badly advised in the past not to have ensured that both you and your brother made a will to protect both sets of rights.
While there is no doubt that there are questions regarding the management of this case, the only way that these can be resolved and rectified is by the Courts.
In my 18 years in politics I have not nor will I become involved in family disputes of this nature because, in my experience, everybody loses and the only real winners are the barristers & their bank accounts.
I think that arbitration may have been useful at an earlier stage, but this ultimately is a dispute between the various beneficiaries of the will.
I’m sorry but I cannot be of assistance to you with regard to this matter.
I’m also sending a copy of this e-mail to your nephew, who has also made contact with me, on your behalf.
Yours sincerely,

Denis Naughten TD

Denis,

Totally agree with you the only way that these matters can be resolved and rectified is by the Courts

However it was Mr. Robert Marren Solicitor the administrator for the Estate that should have taken the matter to the courts to have a Judge decide not demand the Elderly Beneficiaries to issue proceedings when there were known objections.

Tony Henry Tormeys Solicitors did nothing except sit on the files for 3 months. He was instructed by John Glynn Solicitor to write and phone Marren immediately to prevent Marren closing.

It appears that he too wanted to play God in the matter. Why if he was not prepared to act on our behalf did he not have the common decency to phone us and say so. A Solicitor not undertaken an instruction is a very very serious matter and many have been disciplined for same in the past according to the records on line which are referred to in the blog.

I doubt very much that Marren or Henry would work for nothing yet they appear to think that they have a right to play God in my case.

John Glynn helped us write many a letter to Marren on un-headed paper pointing out the fact that Marren should seek a court order to direct how the Estate should be Administrated. Apparently that is common practice if when agreement can not be reached between the beneficiaries of an Estate.

Thank you for taking the time to read the blog!

However in view of the fact that you did, how can Marren holding on my 1/6 share and my sisters 1/6 share of the monies from the land sale for nearly 2 years be explained??

There is no good reason why Marren did not pay these monies to us when he received them!

What he did pay out in the end was €12,500 each short of what we were entitled to plus interest with no acceptable explanation to date as to why he did same.

It appears he also refuses also to pay John Glynn the money he claims some €50k plus for his services…yet he had no issue paying T&N Mc Lynn a year or so prior to closing.

Why do they continually scourge me with their petty battles, what has it got to do with me? and why does Marren threaten Eileen and I that he will not pay John Glynn’s bill while we seek justice through the law society. How are they related??

We are now told Willie Penrose was not paid, not that we were ever given an invoice for his services, but Marren did deduct for it.

Eileen and i never met with Penrose and we only met with Marren once and all he wanted to discuss was us making our wills….what had that got to do with the Administration of my late brothers Estate, or what business was it of his anyway whether we had our will made or not.

It would appear that because Marren is the Son in Law of Aidan O’Carroll a prominent retired Solicitor in Athlone that none of the Solicitors in the Midlands are prepared to act on our behalf.

However we intend to expose the INJUSTICE and ELDER ABUSE we have been subjected too in the public domain and thereby encourage more in our situation to stand up to the Bully Boy tactics lies and deceit that our justice system is riddled with.

I am 83 year of age and I do not deserve to be treated in this fashion. I have worked hard all my life and never wronged any man and if a pair of white bellied bast***S think they can take advantage of my Elder Widowed sister and I they have another thing coming.

Did you have a chance to read the repulsive letter Tony Henry of Tormeys Solicitors sent to Eileen yesterday(copy attached), we were deprived of sleep and up half the night scribbling a response to same. They call them selves educated and yet he had the cheek to  criticizes my signature, what has he a but an arrogant scratch of a line get more from a 2 year old, at least mine spells out my GOOD name.

We are not satisfied with the service on offer in this country to deal with this Injustice and Elder Abuse and as far as we are concerned a country that does not look after its Elderly is no country. To date the only real sympathy and support we have received is from the ordinary people while the rest of yea pluck out one excuse or another as to why yea cannot or do not help out in these matters. Well yea wont sweep this under the carpet and hide away from the facts we have copies of all the correspondence and recall  what went on.

Have a nice day!

Dear Sir,

I received, as did many others, your email in relation to the administration of the estate of your late brother Pat Gavin.   I have retired as a Solicitor for some years but I have no record of you ever consulting me in relation to this matter.   Your sister Eileen  did mention it to me some years ago and I told her I was not prepared to act or otherwise get involved.

I would appreciate if you would not correspond with me further or include me in your mailing list in relation to this matter.

Yours faithfully,

3 of 8 complaints made to Law Society of Ireland in relation to Mr Robert Marren Solicitor

Complaint No 3          

My Third complaint is based on Mr. Robert Marrens, Solicitor, Mullingar response to my third question to him on 13-04-2015

My third question to Mr Marren on 13-04-2015 was

Please explain how you arrived at your decision to award the moneys received from the sale of Pat Gavin’s livestock together with the Gross payments received from the Department of Agriculture without deducting any expense for the minding, looking after, feeding and caring for the animals for the nine years from 2005 to 2014.

His Response was

“As Administrator, it fell to me to make a decision how to treat the proceeds of sale of livestock. I decided to split this between the Estate and your goodself. However, I did not consider your claim for maintaining livestock to be justified, given that you were in possession of the estate lands for such a long period of time free of charge and the fact that you were the joint owner of the livestock anyway. I also based my decision on the Reports of the Estate Accountant and indeed the treatment of same on Farm Accounts.”

As regards ownership of the livestock, I have been totally consistent in claiming that I own half of the livestock and all of the sheep. My ownership of half of the livestock goes back to my youth when my parents encouraged me to take an interest in farming by giving me a number of animals within the overall herd which I with the consent of my brother, Pat was able to have and maintain on the lands. Over the years I added to the original stock by purchasing other stock out of my own monies and by doing deals with my brother, Pat, so that ultimately, by the time Pat died in October, 2005 I owned half the entire herd. Moreover I owned all the sheep as my brother Pat got out of sheep a few years before he died and sold all his interest in the sheep to me. Accordingly, in the referenced years for the purpose of acquiring the Single Farm payment Entitlements, half the livestock on the lands belonged to me and my brother, Pat shared the entitlements with me. There was no differences between Pat and myself in our dealings. In other words we shared the workload, we shared all the expenses, and we shared the profit and income from the land. I refer you to my statement dated 17th of December, 2007, comprehensively dealing with my ownership of half the livestock (cattle) and all of the sheep on the property. In addition, the statement taken on the 23rd of January, 2013 from J H , a cattle dealer who had regular dealings with Pat and myself in connection with the sale of our animals down through the years, corroborates the position. These statements are located at the end of this document (Mike Gavin’s statement dated 17/12/07 and J H’s statement which I sent to Mr. Robert Marren, Solicitor, Mullingar with letter dated 25/01/13).

I object to this decision because the livestock were not Mr Marrens or the estates to split in the first place. It was explained to Mr. Marren and Catherine O’ Connor the Farm accountant the history of the livestock on numerous occasions by myself, my sister Eilenn , J H the cattle dealer (25/01/2013 Corroborative statement from J H as to his dealings with the late Patrick Gavin and Michael Gavin in connection with the sale of their livestock over the years;) and J G our family solicitor, that myself and my brother had a joint farming operation in respect of which each of us shared the expenses and took the profits on the sale of our respective animals to include the division of the single farm payments accordingly as same were received. If Mr. Robert Marren, Solicitor, Mullingar did not accept this explanation why did he not object at the time and why in his letter on 14th of March 2013 did he agree to accept my claim to owning half the livestock and all the sheep, surely that would have been the time to point out that I would not be reimbursed for minding, looking after, feeding and caring for the animals for the nine years from 2005 to 2014. I feel I was “led down the garden path” on this. When I express my concerns to Mr. Robert Marren, Solicitor, Mullingar he responds that he based his decision on the Reports of the Estate and Farm Accounts. Catherine O’Connor the Farm Accountant on the other hand states it’s a legal matter and my estranged sister Kathleen O’ Keefe stated in the past that it would be sorted out at closing.

I and those I have spoken to in relation to this matter FAIL to see the logic to Mr. Robert Marren’s decision, how does he expect me to labour for free for 9 years at my own expense and pay vets fees and fodder to fatten cattle so that those that do nothing can reap the rewards of the GROSS profits. I believe with every bone in my body that I am entitled to be paid for the work done and services rendered and monies expended by me in looking after my brother’s livestock from the time my brother died up to the time the animals were sold, this you will appreciate involved the daily herding and looking after the animals to include feeding of the animals in Winter months to include purchase of food stuffs and discharging vets fees etc.

I also fail to see why it was necessary to hire the additional Estate Accountant. I am of the opinion that the Farm Accountant Catherine O’ Connor was enough and I recall myself and my sister Eileen  explicitly pointing this out to Mr Robert Marren, Solicitor at our first and only meeting in his office when we objected to him going to the further expense of hiring an additional accountant. It appears to me that between them they got it books wrong.

When J G, Solicitor was originally administrating the Estate, an additional accountant was not required to oversee Catherine O’Conner’s work, John was quite capable of carrying out that duty himself.

You will note that the additional Accountant that Mr. Robert Marron, Solicitor, Mullingar insisted on hiring charges the Estate an additional fee of €8,751.45 which I consider to be extremely expensive and an unnecessary expense. You will also note that although he is hired to oversee the accounts his fee is in excess of Catherine’s fee.

Based on the objections I have made above to Mr. Marren’s response I wish to state the following

  1. Again I feel that an inadequate professional service has been provided by Mr. Robert Marren, Solicitor, Mullingar and it is not of a quality that could reasonably be expected of a solicitor. By denying me a share in the profits, it means that I was working for nothing over the 9 years in question from October, 2005 through to 2013. There is no logic to this decision.
  2.  Without the bill of costs to include a detailed breakdown of how the figure of €40,892.53 representing fees paid to Robert Marren & Co. were arrived at, which I feel I am entitle to a copy of; I can only assume that it will contain charges for all the unnecessary additional letters, documents and accountant fees that resulted from Mr Marren’s negligence which has led to the squandering of the estates assets.
  3. Here again I would question whether Mr Marren is guilty of Misconduct by tending to bring the solicitors profession into disrepute.

Complaint No 5

My fifth complaint is based on Mr. Robert Marren’s response to my fifth question to him on 11-04-2015

My fifth question to Mr Marren, Solicitor Mullingar on 11-04-2015 was

Also please explain why you did not award  Mike Gavin half of the Grant Money from the Department of Agriculture after making a decision in your letter on 14th of March 2013 to accept the claim of Michael to owning half the livestock and all the sheep.

Mr. Marren’s response on 22nd April was

“In my view, the grant monies belong to the Estate. The Farm Accounts as prepared have always treated the Grant monies as belonging to the Estate and I adopted the same approach in making my decision.”

My Objection to his response:-

After the death of my brother Patrick, my brother Michael Gavin was appointed herd keeper for the animals by the Department of Agriculture. His understanding was that he would receive the grant monies paid from the department to subsidise the looking after the animals. As I recall he did receive some monies from J G, Solicitor paid down from the department, and then later on my 2 estranged sisters Anne Sanford and Kathleen O’Keefe objected to this.

Catherine O’Conner’s Account Summary 24/02/2012 shows that throughout the entire farming period between 2005 and 2012 the cattle sales came to a figure of €46,589 and the expenses came to a figure of €45,918. Accordingly, the expenses in running the farm were almost equal to the proceeds of sale of livestock. Therefore the profit from the farming operation represented the monies received each year from the Department of Agriculture under the single Payment Scheme, the Disadvantaged Area Scheme and any other Schemes of the Department of Agriculture, less any income tax payable to the state arising out of the farming operation. See Catherine O’Connor’s Account Summary that was attached to Messrs. Patrick Hogan & Company’s Capital Account dated 24th of February, 2012.

Mr. Marren, Solicitor Mullingar argues in his response that the grant monies belong to the Estate, so therefore in my opinion, it seems only reasonable that the accounts should charge the estate for looking after the animals.

I don’t understand how Mr Marren, Solicitor, Mullingar can permit the estate to have it both ways, and I feel my brother Michael Gavin should be awarded either the grant monies paid by the Department of Agriculture for the nine years he looked after all the animals, or in the alternative he should be paid reasonable farm labors wages and refunds for the expenses incurred in running the farm as appointed herd keeper by the Department of Agriculture.

The next of kin cannot have it both ways. They cannot on the one hand expect to receive the monies from the sale of my late brother Pat Gavin’s livestock together with the gross payments received from the Department of Agriculture, without incurring any expense for the minding, looking after and caring for the animals down through the years.

Based on the objections I have made above to Mr. Marren’s response I wish to state the following:

  1. Again I feel that an inadequate professional service has been provided by Mr Marren and it is not of a quality that could reasonably be expected of a solicitor. I take issue with Robert Marren, Solicitor over his accounting in this matter and the lack of clarity in same, apart altogether from his unwillingness to make any allowance to my brother Michael Gavin for his shares in the profits of the lands, or in the alternative, making any allowance to him for work done and services rendered in minding the deceased’s livestock. He also did not accept that the balance of the animals that remained on the lands on the date of closing belonged to him.
  2.  As a result of Mr Marren’s reluctance to see reason in the above matter I have been forced to incur additional unnecessary expenses in drafting documents and letters time and time again to prove the claim. By denying my brother a half share in the profits it means that HE WAS WORKING FOR NOTHING over the years in question from October, 2005 through to 2013. This is totally unjust and totally unacceptable to me. My brother Michael Gavin would have no difficulty in abandoning his genuine claim to ownership in half the remaining livestock that remained on the lands on the date of closing, if, in the alternative, he was paid for the work done and services rendered in minding the entire herd.
  3.  Here again I would question whether Mr Marren is guilty of Misconduct by tending to bring the solicitors profession into disrepute.

Complaint No 6

My sixth complaint is based on Mr. Marrens response to my sixth question to him on 13-04-2015

My sixth question to you on 13-04-2015 was

I would like a breakdown of how the figure of €40,892.53 representing fees paid to Robert Marren & Co. were arrived at. Similarly I would like a breakdown of fees paid to Catherine O’Connor, Tony McLynn (Solicitor for the other side), Willie Penrose, (why was it necessary to get his advices). Please advise me of any outstanding bills, has John Glynn, Hogan & Co. been paid to date, and if not why not.

His Response

“I have already forwarded to you my detailed Bill of Costs in relation to fees. Catherine O’Connor prepared Farm Accounts. Mr Tony McGlynn was the Solicitor in High Court proceedings on behalf of some of the parties and was awarded his costs by Order of the High Court as was Hogan & Company. William Penrose B.L. advices were sought in relation to the sale of lands.”

My Objection to his response:-

To date I have NOT received Mr. Marren detailed Bill of Costs in relation to fees. I believe to say “I have already forwarded to you my detailed Bill of Costs in relation to fees” is a blatant lie on Mr Mirren’s part. I believe the devil is in the detail and that is why Mr Marron has conveniently neglected to send me a breakdown of how the figure of €40,892.53 representing fees paid to Robert Marren & Co. were arrived at.? No this is a convenient LIE in my humble opinion.

A solicitor familiar with the case recently remarked to a member of my family that it was as if Mr Marren just plucked the figure of €40,892.53 out of thin air. Regardless I eagerly await Mr Marrens a detailed breakdown of how the figure of €40,892.53 representing fees paid to Robert Marren & Co. were arrived at.

Letter to Law Society

Tony Watson

Solicitor,

Deputy Head of Complaints

and Client Relations Section

Date 02-07-2015

Ref: 22942/L/19/7

Dear Mr. Watson,

I acknowledge receipt of your letter dated 29th June, 2015. I am extremely disappointed that based on the 8 individual complaints I made in relation to how Mr. Marren, Solicitor, dealt with the administration of my late brother Patrick Gavin’s Estates; you do not believe that these complaints of inadequate professional services, alleged over charging and misconduct, warrant investigation by the Law Society of Ireland.

You are most correct when you state that Mr. Marren was clearly dealing with a very complex and contentious estate, as were my brother Michael Gavin and I. However that does not give him the right to proceed as he did.

What exactly do you mean when you state that “Mr. Marren has set out in some detail how the estate would be distributed, based upon his client’s very clear instructions?”

It would appear that our family Solicitors J G’s, suspicions were correct when he stated in his letter to Tony Henry, Tormeys Solicitors on 14th January, 2015, “Finally, for the purpose of endeavoring to avoid further proceedings in the matter, I would suggest that you immediately telephone Robert Marren to advise him that you have received instructions to act and enquire just where exactly does he stand in this matter and enquire whether or not his hands are tied by the instructions received from Messrs. Sanford & O’Keeffe and/or their Solicitors, Messr. T & N McLynn.”

If you consider Messrs. Sanford & O’Keeffe clients of Mr. Marren, where does that leave my brother Michael Gavin and I. I was under the impression that we were all beneficiaries of the Estate and our clear instructions and objections should be dealt with in a fair and unbiased way by the administrator Mr. Marren.

You go on to acknowledge my brothers letter of the 5th December, 2014 in which my brother Michael Gavin states “If a fair allowance is not made on an agreed basis, I will not give my consent to any distribution account prepared by you. Similarly, my sisters will also have to agree before a distribution account can be finalised and a distribution effected. Accordingly you as Administrator will be unable to distribute the estate unless you can procure agreement between us and, if this agreement is not forthcoming, I am advised the only way you, as Administrator, can be protected is to go back into Court and get a Court Order directing how the estate can be distributed.”

However Mr. Marren passed the book to us and demanded court proceeding to prevent the distribution, and although he extended the time for the distribution to allow for the proceedings to be issued and served, as you stated yourself in letter Ref 22943/L/19/7 “It is quite clear from the chronology, that Mr. Henry was only instructed over a very limited period, and there is reference to this being over the Christmas Period December/January 2014/2015.” While this does not excuse Mr. Henry’s reluctance to undertake J G’s verbal and written instructions, I hope you can appreciate that the very limited period was based on Mr. Marren’s decision to finalise the distribution of the estate with little regard to our objections.

You are quiet right we had difficulties with both solicitors and barristers to the extent that there appears to be a significant reluctance from local Solicitors to challenge Mr. Marren. After Mr. Henry’s advice that it could take up to 3 years and costs in the range of €60,000 to €100,000 to sue Mr. Marren we are fearful that we may be taken advantage of again and loose the reduced amount we were awarded to date. We believe that Mr. Marren should not have finalised the distribution without addressing our objections, and it appears he did same to avoid paying our €82,500 1/6 share of the land from action in isolation to the rest of the estate.

I was of the belief that my complaints to the Law Society of Ireland would get Mr. Marren to see the error in his judgement and the seriousness of the matter.

I maintain that a number of my complaints do relate to alleged overcharging and inadequate professional service and I have difficulty understanding why the Society refuses to investigate them.

I do appreciate that the Society’s complaints and clients relations Committee has no role in determining the proper distribution of an Estate, or effectively acting as a mediator in a dispute between beneficiaries, and I apologise if I gave that impression that’s what I was seeking.

While these are matters that can only be dealt with by the court if they cannot be resolved by agreement I believe it should be the Administrator who goes back into Court to get a Court Order directing how the estate can be distributed not the elderly beneficiaries.

Before referring this matter to the independent Adjudicator and/or tribunal I would greatly appreciate it if you could reconsider the matter paying particular attention to the fact that Mr. Marren

  1. Allowed confusion to arise in relation to the exact disbursement of funds held by him;
  2.  Grossly delayed, without reasonable explanation, the administration of the estate, the deceased person having died in 2005 some ten years ago;
  3.  Showed a complete disregard for the interests of the beneficiaries, whom Mr. Marren, Solicitor, knew to be elderly, and by his conduct is depriving two of the beneficiaries, of the enjoyment of their share in the estate;
  4.  Provided an inadequate professional service and it is not of a quality that could reasonably be expected of a solicitor. There is no good reason why Mr Marren did not “bite the bullet” and pay over the full €82,500 when he received the funds way back on 27th of May 2013.
  5.  Being reluctant to resolve the issue in isolation to the rest of the Estate;
  6.  Not provided the detailed bill of costs to include a detailed breakdown of how the figure of €40,892.53 representing fees paid to Robert Marren & Co. were arrived at, I believe that legal and auctioneering fees are excessive, and my brother Michael Gavin and I should not be charged for same as the beneficiaries on the otherside agreed to waive them. 05/07/13 Marron to Gavin and Linney enclosing copy letter dated 3rd of July, 2013 from T & N McLynn;
  7.  Breached the following regulation of the solicitors’ account regulations, 2001: • Regulation 4(2): by failing without delay to pay monies held or controlled by them in respect of outlays not yet disbursed into client account and failing to treat such monies in all respects as client money;
  8.  Breached the following regulation of the solicitors’ account regulations, 2001: Regulation 5: by holding monies to which they were beneficially entitled in a client account for longer than three months in respect of outlays already disbursed, or which should have been the subject matter of a bill of costs furnished to the client concerned;
  9.  Brought the solicitors profession into disrepute;
  10.  Denied my brother Michael Gavin a share in the farming profits, to the extent that my brother was working for nothing over the 9 years in question from October, 2005 through to 2013;
  11.  Provided an inadequate professional service and it is not of a quality that could reasonably be expected of a solicitor with regards to the explanation he provides to explain how he arrived at his decision to award the moneys received from the sale of Pat Gavin’s livestock together with the Gross payments received from the Department of Agriculture without deducting any expense for the minding, looking after, feeding and caring for the animals for the nine years from 2005 to 2014;
  12.  Delayed making the decision regarding my brother Michael Gavin’s share in the farming profits and rightful share of the grant monies received from the Department of Agriculture until the very end with the draft distribution account that contained countless errors on 18th September, 2014. Michael Gavin was lied to and led to believe that he would be refunded at closing by some of the beneficiaries. Why did Mr. Marren make a decision around March 2013 to accept Michael Gavin’s claim to owning half the livestock and all the sheep? But yet for no logical reason refuses to award him the net amount €116,789.11 due to him out of the Single Payment Entitlements representing my ½ share in the profits from farming the lands, which was also sent to Mr. Marren, Solicitor, on the 5th of December, 2015 for his consideration. There is no good reason why he took advantage of my brother Michael Gavin’s good nature and delayed his decision in this matter until the end;
  13.  Squandered the Estate assets by hiring an additional accountant against my wishes at a cost of €8,751.45;
  14.  Accounting mistakes and lack of clarity;
  15.  Forced me to incur additional unnecessary expenses in drafting documents and letters time and time again to prove my claim;
  16.  Not furnished a detailed statement of all the legal costs to his client. Under Section 68 of the Solicitors (Amendment) Act, 1994 provides for charges to clients. Under these provisions a solicitor should furnish a detailed statement of all the legal costs to his client;
  17.  Not furnished a copy of Solicitor T & N McLynn’s Bill of Costs for the handsome fee of €38,941.00;
  18.  Provided incorrect invoice for Catherine O’Conner Accountant. Catherine O’Conner’s invoice states Total Amount Due €584.25 while Cash Account dated 18th July, 2014 “Fees paid to Catherine O’ Connor €6,857.25;
  19.  Not provided an invoice for William Penrose B.L. or explanation of why his opinion was sought for €1,230.00;
  20.  Not provided an invoice for John Dolan Auctioneer and breakdown of the fee he was paid. As I recalls the auctioneer John Dolan did advertise the auction extensively and I recalls full and half page ads appeared in the local newspapers. I would argue that based on the amount of interest and bids made at the auction that these ads served no purpose other than to promote John Dolans Auctioneering service as a whole. I believe that a free mention in the local parish newsletter would have sufficed.

“A single or repeated act or lack of appropriate action occurring within any relationship where there is an expectation of trust which causes harm or distress to an older person or violates their human and civil rights”.

Rights abuse: denying the civil and constitutional rights of a person who is old, but not declared by court to be mentally incapacitated. This is an aspect of elder abuse that is increasingly being recognized and adopted by nations

A High Court Special Summons was sought to sell the roof over my head among other things.

“By notices in writing Kathleen ‘OKeefe, and Mary Theresa Harte have confirmed their desire to have the house and lands of the estate sold. Nicholas Duffy and his four children have also confirmed that they desire to have the property sold. It is also the wish of the Plaintiff that the property be sold.”

Justice-3

Bearing in mind that they and their Solicitor T & N McLynn, Athlone were well aware that I was entitled to live in the home for the rest of my days per my father’s will which they were all furnished with a copy of. As I recall I was required to attend the high court on 3 separate days, the first of which they did not attend. On the second day I was informed by my barrister Donal Keane B.L. that they were in another room arguing amongst themselves, and then finally we got before the judge on the third day. This is just one of the numerous examples of their vengeful, spiteful behavior where they namely Anne Sanford, Kathleen O’Keefe, Mike Harte, Brenda Harte Waters, Michelle Harte, Philomena Duffy, Patrick Duffy, Catherine Duffy and Noel Duffy squandered the Estate assets.

The beneficiaries Anne Sanford, Wellesley, Mass USA, Kathleen O’Keefe, Glanmire, Cork, Mike Harte,Wellesley, Mass USA, Brenda Harte Waters Quincy, Mass USA, Michelle Harte Wellesley, Mass USA, Philomena Duffy Mayo, Patrick Duffy, Clare, Catherine Duffy, Monksland, Athlone and Noel Duffy, Athlone;
