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.

SEAN MAGUIRE PEOPLES INTERNET RADIO INTERVIEWS MICHAEL GAVIN

SEAN MAGUIRE PEOPLES INTERNET RADIO INTERVIEWS Michael Gavin

Pages 144 to 148 Financial Elder Abuse Book by Michael Gavin

The interview was recorded live on Sean Maugure’s Out of the Bag
show and is currently available on YouTube at https://youtu.be/pLSycEaJX8I

Sean Maguire – “The Department of Agriculture appointed you the
herd keeper for the animals and Mr. Robert Marren is the Solicitor.”

Michael Gavin – That’s Right That’s Right and HE CONFISCATED
THE GRANTS and probably he gave the money that was in the grants
over to them. I never got a shilling never got a shilling.

Sean Maguire – So they were pocketing the money that you should
have being getting

Michael Gavin – Your dead right Sean, dead right

Sean Maguire – So Mr. Robert Marren refused to award the monies
paid down from the department of Agriculture

Michael Gavin – Yeah Yes

Sean Maguire – and they were paid but who got them?

Michael Gavin – They were paid, they were paid

Sean Maguire – So this is corruption by Mr. Marren Solicitor.

Michael Gavin – Sure isn’t that Corruption Sean?

Sean Maguire – It is corruption

Michael Gavin – It is corruption

Sean Maguire – Its dreadful, it really is horrible, and Mr. Marren also
refused to pay your sister Eileen’s share of the proceeds from the land
sale

Michael Gavin – That’s Right

Sean Maguire – From the Land Sale despite the fact that he (Marren)
had the same in his possession for nearly 2 years.

Michael Gavin – That’s Right

Sean Maguire – And then he (Marren) went on to, did he threaten you?

Michael Gavin – What?

Sean Maguire – It says, I’m reading up a little bit about it and it says
that he (Marren Solicitor) went on to threaten Michael and Eileen
that’s yourself and your sister

Michael Gavin – He did, he did

Eileen Linney – Mr. Robert Marren Solicitor refused to pay Michael
Gavin the Grant money that was paid down from the department of

Agriculture, and also for work done and services rendered, and
Michael is owed over €116,000 for 9 years minding the farm minding
the farm animals right.

Eileen Linney – Robert Marren Solicitor held onto the funds from the
land sale for over 2 years and then finally awarded Michael Gavin and
Myself €12,500 plus interest less that what we were entitled to.

Sean Maguire – Right

Eileen Linney – He (Marren) also withheld (ROBBED) €3,500 from
my amount for cattle I owned and that is incorrect because I never
owned any animals.

Now there were people that were not paid also. For instance Willie
Penrose TD was not paid for his opinion whilst the estate was charged
for same.

Robert Marren Solicitor Squandered the estate assets and hired an
additional Accountant at a cost of €8,750 when in fact there was
already another accountant who was quite capable of doing this work,
but this was an additional accountant he hired.

He also did not provide any detailed bill of costs for his own fee of over
€40,982 which he awarded to himself.

There was no bill of costs provided for T&N McLynn solicitors Athlone
and they were paid over €38,000

Sean Maguire – Wow,

Eileen Linney – T&N McLynn solicitors Athlone were paid a year
prior to closing.

Now I just like to say that prior to Mr. Marren closing it we wrote to
him trying to get our money because we were waiting so long to get our
share of the land sale and for my brother to get his amount of the grant
money for work done and services rendered and in the letter we wrote
to him we asked him to go to the court to find out exactly how the estate
should be divided up

and he wrote back and THREATENED US with
a letter stating that we should take proceedings against him get a
solicitor and take proceedings against him or he was closing on a
certain date, and that is the story about it.

Sean Maguire – So this is absolute corruption

Eileen Linney – Yes it is corruption and another thing I want to tell
you is we are having a peaceful protest this Friday outside Mr.

Marren’s office in Castle Street Mullingar and it will continue until our
demands are met which we are due.

Sean Maguire – It makes perfect sense and Well Done for standing up
to these corrupt shysters.

This is a brave and poignant ongoing story of an elderly gentleman farmer from rural Ireland who courageously stands up against the Irish legal profession that is determined to steal his money and his land.The corruption, greed, and injustice are obvious and well explained.”The law is as straight as a door jamb, it’s those that implements it that’s crooked.”

DID ROBBER MARREN HIRE ALLEGED IRA MAN LAWERWNCE MC MANUS

Lawrence Mc Manus

Lawrence Mc Manus

Robber Marren

Why did you contact John Glynn in April 2019 re signing Land
Registry Form 36 for House at Dundonnell, Taughmaconnell,
Roscommon. As you are well aware your clients Kathleen O’ Keefe and
Anne Sanford reported John Glynn to the Law Society of Ireland and
they advised him to step aside.

My late brother Michael Gavin RIP and I responded to your previous
request for our signatures on form 36 back in October 2017.
Why did you and or your clients fail to respond. (copy of the letter we
sent you is included below.)

Did you hire Lawrence McManus 083 113 3608 Pettigo, Co Donegal
to mediate the sale of the property at Dundonnell Taughmaconnell
Roscommon?

Why did Lawrence McManus 083 113 3608 Pettigo, Co Donegal
phone me demanding that I, 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 me 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 on my
behalf 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 I
Eileen Linney did not sign any agreement with Lawrence McManus
nor did I ever meet with him.

We have spoken to people in Donegal namely Shauna Veronica Tynan
friend to Bridget Dillon and they claim that McManus has a history of
tricking the elderly out of money up there.

As it stands McManus and his son are using the farmlands in
Dundonnell to graze their cattle which is strange bearing in mind that
its at least a 3 hour drive from Pettigo.

Robert Marren Solicitor Threatens Court Application against Michael Gavin’s RIP Widowed Sister Eileen Linney

 

Marren-Glynn-22-August-2019Marren,

In response to your letter to John Glynn Solicitor dated 22nd August 2019 we will state the following and send it to your office and home address in Mullingar via Registered Post as we have done with previous correspondence which you ROBERT B MARREN have choose to IGNORE..

After Michael Gavin RIP met with you once in your office Castle Street Mullingar he was of the opinion that you were as Crooked as a dog’s hind leg,Michael often remarked that he heard the old people say that The Law is as straight as a door Jamb; it’s those that implements the Law that are CROOKED.

Although you Marren are well aware that the Law Society of Ireland advised John Glynn to step aside you continue to squander the estate assets by writing to him.

Now you  Threatens Court Application to force me to sign your form 36 and squander more estate assets.

There is an alternative for you and you clients contained in the previous correspondence sent to you and your clients in May/June 2019 copy enclosed again.

As I have advised you in previous correspondence from the date you received and have withheld funds from my widowed sister Eileen Linney and I an interest rate of 8% per Month is accruing to the benefit of our accounts plus expenses because of your failure to make good on our legitimate claim.

Here is a link to file that was sent to DPP https://goo.gl/ryaqsf

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 I Eileen Linney did not sign any agreement with Lawrence McManus nor did I ever meet with him.

We have spoken to people in Donegal namely Shauna Veronica Tynan friend to Bridget Dillon and they claim that McManus has a history of tricking the elderly out of money up there.

As it stands McManus and his son are using the farmlands in Dundonnell to graze their cattle which is strange bearing in mind that its at least a 3 hour drive from Pettigo.

A brief history of what happened.  My 2 sisters Ann Sanford and Kathleen O’Keefe reported John Glynn to law Society.   The Law Society advised John Glynn to step aside.  John Glynn continued to assist us with correspondence on our behalf (unletter Headed) to you  Marren.  When you Marren issued the distribution statement it was apparent that you favoured our sisters Ann Sanford and Kathleen O’Keefe wishes. We challenged you on a number of points and suggested that he take case back before a Judge for a decision to be made particularly how department of agriculture grants were to be distributed bearing in mind that my late brother Michael Gavin 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 led to believe by his two sisters all along that he would be compensated.

YOU Marren responded by threatening us that if we did not engage a solicitor, you intended to proceed and distribute the estate assets according to the statement. John Glynn 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 you Robert B 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 you Marren received and withheld funds from my late brother Michael Gavin RIP and I, an interest rate of 8% is accruing to our account plus expenses, because of YOUR 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 YOU Marren and your State Solicitor Peter D Jones numerous times, but no reply.

There is a charge against the properties of my late brother Patrick Gavin RIP with the  Land Registry, Roscommon. You do not have my permission to sell the house until such time as my above demands are met. 

Have you Robert B Marren informed those currently using the lands Michael Myers and Paddy Myers Dundonnell Taughmaconnell and Lawrence McManus Pettigo Donegal that the lands are in dispute and were obtained fraudulently?

Have you Robert B Marren informed YOUR CLIENTS Ann Sanford Wellesley Massachusetts, Kathleen O’Keeffe Glanmire, Cork, Patrick Duffy, Philomena Duffy Davitt College, Castlebar, Noel Duffy Athlone, Kathryn Kelly Duffy Portiuncula Hospital Ballinasloe, Michael J. Harte Wellesley Massachusetts, Michelle Harte, Brenda Waters Quincy USA of the impact this matter will have on them. What will their work colleagues, neighbours, and friends have to say???

Have you Robert B Marren informed the department of Agriculture and instruct them to stop paying out grants on the Farm lands until such time as this matter is sorted?

My brother Pat Gavin died intestate in October 2005. You Robert B Marren were appointed to administer the estate of my late brother. You Marren considered the other beneficiaries to be your clients, you favoured their wishes, followed their instructions and ignored my brother Michael Gavin RIP and my objections and that was the opinion from by Tony Watson from Law Society Ireland.

We did attempt to retain a solicitor Tony Henry Tormeys Solicitors Athlone, however he did NOT undertake the instructions given him through John Glynn and therefore YOU Marren closed the estate in isolation to our objections.

FOR THE RECORD. My brother Michael Gavin RIP 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.

My demands remain the same from the date Robert B Marren received and withheld funds from my deceased brother Michael Gavin and I an interest rate of 8% per Month is accruing to the benefit of our accounts plus expenses because of Robert B Marrens failure to make good on our legitimate claim.

Here is the exact letter that was sent to you by my late brother Michael Gavin RIP and I when we responded to your previous request for our signatures on form 36 back in October 2017

Dear Mr Marren,

In response to your letter dated 24th October, 2017.

RE: House at Taughmaconnell

Paragraph 1 of your letter Mr. Marren you stated:

I refer to your recent correspondence regarding the above. I have received correspondence from Patrick Hogan & Company Solicitors on your behalf also.

My Response:

The recent correspondence you received from me personally contained 10 questions. Only the first 2 questions were in relation to “Houses at Taughmaconnell” Co. Roscommon.

I would be most grateful if you would stop coercing me into retaining a Solicitor and respond to each of my 10 questions in order.

You Robert Marren have NOT dealt with any of the issues raised in my letter in your response or your “previous correspondence” and I propose to pursue you vigorously until the matters are resolved to my satisfaction.

Paragraph 2 of your letter Mr. Marren you stated:

The Position is that Application is being made in the Land Registry to register the beneficiaries as owners of the house in which you currently reside, which belonged to your late brother Patrick Gavin deceased. I have circulated Land Registry Forms 36 which is required to be signed by each of the beneficiaries in order to achieve this. I forwarded a form for a signature by you to your Solicitor, whom you should consult in relation thereto. The registration of the beneficiaries as owners of the property does not affect your Right of Residence. You will still be entitled to reside there by law.

My Response

The above paragraph refers to Folio 9544F my current home and where I have lived most of my life with my brother Pat Gavin who died in October 2005 over 12 years ago.

I have a number of questions I would like you to answer with regard to the above 2nd paragraph of your letter Mr Robert B Marren.

  1. Why has it taken until now for you Robert B Marren to make application to Land Registry to register the beneficiaries as owners of the house in which I currently reside?
  2. Why did you LIE Robert B Marren to me in previous correspondence when you stated you had finished administrating the estate?
  3. Who Robert B Marren requires all the beneficiaries to sign Land Registry Forms 36?
  4. Why don’t you do the right thing and circulate a form requiring the beneficiaries to return what they ROBBED from me?
  5. Who is my Solicitor Robert B Marren?
  • John Glynn was asked to step aside by the Law Society of Ireland.
  • Tony Henry Tormeys Solicitors Athlone failed to undertake instructions.
  • Martin Egan informed me that because you are the son in law of Aidan O’Carroll I will not get representation in the midlands.
  • Barristers are looking for €30,000 cash upfront to sue you.

 

Paragraph 3 of your letter Mr. Marren you stated:

In relation to your query regarding the lands comprised in Folio RN36155F. Your Solicitor will explain that this piece of ground that was registered in the names of the original Administrators. When I was appointed Administrator by the High Court, I then registered the property in my name as Administrator. This piece of ground will also be registered in the names of the beneficiaries.

My Response

The above paragraph refers to Folio 36155F old historical home where I was born and reared.

A Solicitor has already explained irregularities to me with regard to Folio 36155F

 

I have a number of questions I would like you to answer with regard to the above 3rd  paragraph  of your letter Mr Robert B Marren.

 

  1. Why did you Robert B Marren registered Folio 36155F in your name as Administrator?
  2. Why was Folio 36155F excluded from the land sale?
  3. According to the Land Registry in Roscommon Folio 36155F was recently registered in the names of the beneficiaries. Why was/am I not required to complete FORM 36 for the Folio 36155F but I am required for Folio 9544F??

 

Paragraph 4 of your letter Mr. Marren you stated:

This is the final step in the administration of your late brother’s Estate and I hope to complete this as soon as all the Land Registry forms are signed by the beneficiaries to enable me proceed. Until I receive the necessary documentation duly signed, I cannot finalize matters.

My response

I suggest you chew on a recent statement made by an informed individual obviously familiar with my case of Financial Elder Abuse.

The feeling of injustice, of being wronged, can eat away at a man’s soul. It seems too that it is invariably the poor man who is on the receiving end: he has not the wherewithal either to take on the rich and privileged wrong-doers. No there is no justice for the poor. Law was after all invented in the ancient world by the rich and powerful specifically to oppress the poor… The poor wronged man will surely carry his sense of injustice with him into the grave. And there is not a thing he can do about it. ~ peter robinson

There is no doubt that I Michael Gavin will carry my sense of injustice with me into the grave. However how many generations of those rich and privileged wrong-doers will be haunted by their ancestral shame?

Paragraph 5 of your letter Mr. Marren you stated:

The other issues that you raised in your letter have been dealt with in previous correspondence and I do not propose to revisit the matters. The administration has been completed, save for the final step and I would be obliged if you would forward to me the documentation duly signed to enable me proceed.

My Response

No that is another LIE Robert B Marren the 10 questions below remain unanswered. I would be much obliged if you and the beneficiaries would return what you ROBBED from me.

Questions you refuse to answer.

Question 1

Re Folio RN36155F the old historical home where I was born and reared.

  1. Who authorised you Mr. Robert B Marren to register yourself as full owner?
  2. Who authorised you Mr. Robert B Marren to make application to Roscommon Land Registration Authority for applicants Ann Sanford Wellesley Massachusetts, Kathleen O’Keeffe Glanmire, Cork, Eileen Linney, Michael Gavin, Patrick Duffy, Philomena Duffy, Noel Duffy, Kathryn Kelly, Michael J. Harte, Michelle Harte, Brenda Waters as owners of Folio RN36155F.
  3. I was not required to complete FORM 36 for the above registration. WHY?

Question 2

Re Folio 9544F the home where I currently reside.

  1. Why are you a coercing me again to engage a solicitor at my expense to complete FORM 36.
  2. Why has it taken until now for you Mr. Robert B. Marren to deal with this vexatious issue bearing in mind that my brother Pat Gavin died in October 2005 over 12 years ago.
  3. Will I still be entitled to reside in my home as per my fathers will?

Question 3

Who authorised you Mr. Robert B. Marren to favour the wishes of my 2 devious and spiteful sisters Ann Sanford and Kathleen O’Keefe. According to Tony Watson of the Law Society of Ireland you followed their clear instructions. What about my valid objections Marren?

Question 4

Who authorised you Robert B. Marren to distribute the estate assets speedily over the Christmas period 2014 in the knowledge that myself and my sister Eileen Linney were actively attempting to retain a solicitor (Tony Henry Tormeys Solicitors Athlone) to act on our behalf to prevent you closing. Why didn’t you do the right thing and take the case back before a judge as I instructed you to do.

Question 5

Who authorised you Robert B. Marren to Delay 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?

Question 6

Who authorised you Robert B. Marren, Solicitor, Mullingar to make a decision in March 2013 to accept my claim to owning half the livestock and all the sheep?

But yet for no logical reason you refused to award me the net amount €116,789.11 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 you Mr. Robert Marren, Solicitor, Mullingar on the 5th of December, 2015 for your consideration.

Question 7

Who authorised you Robert B. Marren to award me Elderly Michael Gavin and my widowed sister €12,500 plus interest less than what we were entitled to? Who authorised you to hold on to the funds from the land sale for nearly 2 years for no good reason?

Question 8

Who authorised you Robert B. Marren NOT to provide your detailed bill of costs as requested numerous times?

Question 9

Who authorised you Robert B. Marren to hire your own personal accountant Damien Hannigan & Company Limited Chartered Accountant, Mullingar. Why was he hired against the explicate wishes of Michael Gavin and Eileen Linney to oversee the accounts of Catherine O’Conner?

Damien Hannigan charged an excessive fee of €8,751.45 which is considered to be extremely expensive and an unnecessary expe++nse. Although he was hired to oversee the accounts his fee is in excess of Catherine O’Conner’s fee.

Why do you Robert B. Marren refused to provide the correct invoice for Catherine O’Conner. Her invoice states Total Amount Due €584.25 while Cash Account dated 18th July, 2014 “Fees paid to Catherine O’ Connor €6,857.25.”

Question 10

Who authorised you Robert B. Marren to seek William Penrose B.L opinion.  Despite our numerous written requests No Invoice for William Penrose B.L. or explanation of why his opinion was sought. Did you pay Willie Penrose and what for?

The Estate was charged €1,230 for Willie Penrose’s opinion but no invoice was provided despite repeated persistent written requests. We were informed that Willie Penrose TD BL has refused to the investigating Garda a statement in relation to this matter.

As I have advised you in previous correspondence from the date you received and have withheld funds from my widowed sister Eileen Linney and I an interest rate of 8% per Month is accruing to the benefit of our accounts plus expenses because of your failure to make good on our legitimate claim.

Your Sincerely,

Eileen Linney

 

 

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!

Michael Gavin

Exposing Gormanston College Past Student Robert B. Marren for Solicitor Financial Elder Abuse

I hereby inform you at #GormanstonCollege that I 85 Year Old Michael Gavin am a victim of Financial #ElderAbuse at the hands of one of your past students #RobertBMarren Solicitor Castle Street #Mullingar.
Robert B Marren deprived me the right to have my well-founded objections brought before a Judge. Marren confiscated over €116,000 Department of Agriculture grants, so I was tricked into working for nothing for over 9 years minding farm animals. 
13094132_301138173550622_8337003707737119246_n
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.
Tony Henry Tormeys Solicitors Athlone did not 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.
Tony Watson Law Society of Ireland would not 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.
Peter D. JonesWestmeath State Solicitor (minus his penalty points) has not 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.
Linda Kirwan Solicitor from the Society of Ireland will not 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.
The Law is as Straight as a Door Jamb,It’s those that implements the Law that’s CROOKED
Have a Nice Day

Kathleen O’Keefe                                                                                                              

Anne Sanford

c/o T & N McLynn Solicitors

Athlone,

Co. Westmeath

Date 22/06/2015

 

In response to your letter dated 12th June, 2015. You hope I am “keeping well” after what may I ask, after being abused by two very vengeful and spiteful sisters, who put the Estate of my late brother Patrick Gavin to enormous legal expense and whom I have no doubt would be prepared to waste my personal assets in further litigation given a chance.

Or perhaps you mean am I keeping well after your #HighCourt Special Summons where you 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.”

Bearing in mind that you and your Solicitor T & N McLynn were well aware that I was entitled to live in the home for the rest of my days per my father’s will which you 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 you did not attend.

On the second day I was informed by my barrister Donal Keane B.L. that ye were in another room arguing amongst yerselves, and then finally we got before the judge on the third day. This is just one of the numerous examples of your vengeful, spiteful behaviour where you both squandered the Estate assets.

Or perhaps you mean am I keeping well after YOU FAIL to accept that I am entitled to half the farming profits (i.e. half the net proceeds of the Department of Agriculture Grants from 2005-2013 inclusive, after deduction 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 me in looking after the deceased’s animals over the period.

I am aware that the lease with #AnneSanford and yourself will end on the 31st July, 2015. I will ensure the land is cleared of all livestock as of that date as per your request. As far as I am concerned the lands are cursed and I have no intention of releasing or purchasing or having anything more to do with it.

As I recall you rushed me into signing your 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.

t&n+front (1)

This appears underhanded to me and highlights the inadequate professional service provided by your Solicitor #T&NMcLynn, #Athlone. It is not of a quality that could reasonably be expected of a solicitor and severed no purpose other than to force me to incur additional unnecessary expenses for legal advice to draft letters in response to the lease agreement you 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 your Solicitors T&N McLynn’s Bill of Costs.

Regardless it appears ye did not accept the 9 animals that remained on the lands (after closing) separately belong to me, as 50% of the value of the livestock handed over on closing of the sale is deducted from me on the revised distribution account dated 12th of November, 2014. I maintained that these animals were entirely my own animals, being the progeny of those animals listed as being my animals in the list prepared following the herd test on 28th of July, 2008. There is no other good reason as to why I would want a 1 year lease agreement other than to house and care for my own animals.

Around the time of the leasing I do recall expressing to you my dissatisfaction at not receiving any grant monies from the Department of Agriculture or monies for looking after my brother’s livestock on behalf of the Estate, and you lie by stating “it would be taken care of at closing”.

I also recall my sister Anne Sanford also lied by stating over the years that she would purchase nuts for the cattle, a cup of which I have yet to see.

I have many issues with the manner in which the Estate of my late brother Patrick Gavin was dealt with and the #LawSocietyofIreland has been informed in recent days.

Some of these issues include the following:

  1. I was not furnished with a copy of your Solicitor T & N McLynn’s Bill of Costs for the handsome fee of €38,941.00
  2. Marren’s persistent reluctance to provided me with his own detailed Bill of Cost to date for €40,892.53
  3. How the auction of the property was dealt with. The auction aborted and you the purchasers did not proceed with the purchase. Then you got the remaining of the next of kin, namely Theresa Harte, and the Duffy family to disclaim/release their shares in the deceased’s Estate;
  4. I have issues regarding how my objections prior to the Estate Accounts being finalised were dealt with against my wishes over the Christmas period;
  5. No Invoice for #JohnDolanAuctioneer and breakdown of the fee he was paid was provided to me to date. . 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. To be honest a free mention in the local parish newsletter would have sufficed.
  6. #DamienHannigan & Company Limited Chartered Accountant, Mullingar were hired against my wishes to oversee the accounts of Catherine O’Conner. They charged in my opinion an excessive fee of €8,751.45 which I consider to be extremely expensive and an unnecessary expense. Although he was hired to oversee the accounts his fee is in excess of Catherine O’Conner fee;
  7. No invoice for #WilliamPenrose B.L. or explanation of why his opinion was sought was provided for bill of €1,230.00
  8. Why was I not awarded half of the Grant Money from the Department of Agriculture after a decision was made around March 2013 to accept my claim to owning half the livestock and all the sheep.

Etc..

After the death of my brother Patrick, I was appointed herd 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. As I recall I did receive some monies from John Glynn, Solicitor paid down from the department, and then later on Anne Sanford and yourself objected to this.

How can the estate expect to have it both ways, I feel I should be awarded either the grant monies paid by the Department of Agriculture for the nine years I 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 herd keeper by the Department of Agriculture.

Anne Sanford, yourself and the next of kin namely #MikeHarte, #BrendaHarteWaters, #MichelleHarte, #PhilomenaDuffy, #PatrickDuffy, #CatherineDuffyKelly and #NoelDuffy 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.

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.

I and those I have spoken to in relation to this matter FAIL to see the logic to your reluctance to see reason in this matter, how do you expect me to labor 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.

By denying me a half share in the profits it means that I WAS WORKING FOR NOTHING over the years in question from October, 2005 through to 2013. This is totally unjust and totally unacceptable to me.

I will not accept the present situation which is totally unfair and leave me without any compensation whatsoever for my time and trouble in looking after the animals on behalf of the estate and also deprives me of any profit I may have earned in the rearing and looking after my own animals.

Please find enclosed a detailed breakdown of the net amount €116,789.11 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. Marren, Solicitor, on the 5th of December, 2015 for your consideration. You will note that all I am looking for is my fair share of the profits in the running of the farm and fair compensation for the work I did in looking after the animals.

beneficiaries-11

I would advise each of you namely Anne Sanford, Kathleen O’Keefe, Mike Harte, Brenda Harte Waters, Michelle Harte, Philomena Duffy, Patrick Duffy, Catherine Duffy and Noel Duffy, if ye are not prepared to be reasonable in this matter there will be no alternative but to go back to Court again to have the matter determined.

If I do not have a favourable response back from you I intend instructing a Solicitor in this matter and taking such proceedings as are necessary against Anne Sanford, yourself and the next of kin namely Mike Harte, Brenda Harte Waters, Michelle Harte, Philomena Duffy, Patrick Duffy, Catherine Duffy Kelly and Noel Duffy to agree a fair allowance to me out of the Single Payment Entitlements representing my ½ share in the profits from farming the lands.

I hereby also put you on notice that I have made my funeral wishes known to Father #SeanNeylon, and Garda Tim Farrell, #Taughmaconnell that I do not want any of you in attendance at my funeral.

I would appreciate any further correspondence for me to be sent to my family Solicitor John Glynn, #Ballinasloe.

 

Yours 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

#DenisNaughten TD

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. #RobertbMarren 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.

#TonyHenry #TormeysSolicitors 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 #WilliePenrose 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 #AidanOCarroll 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 #ELDERABUSE 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!

Denis Naughten TD Meeting

Denis Naughten TD met with Eileen Linney, Mike Gavins sister in #GulliansHotel on Friday 19th June 2016 after 10:30am. He stated he did not get involved in family disputes as its against the constitution. Eileen explained what was owed to her brother Mike Gavin and herself and gave details of the amount due to Mike Gavin for his work done over a 9 year period. She explain that she did not own any cattle yet there was €3,700 deducted from her share plus €12,500 from the land sale , a further €116,000 plus €12,500 from the land sale was deducted for her brother Mike Gavin  by Robert B. Marren Solicitor.

Denis Naughten TD stated for them to get a Solicitor and write to the Supreme Court – #SusanDenham. Eileen stated Robert Marren was appointed to administer the estate which he didn’t do and Denis Naughton stated the Judge who appointed him would have agreed with what he did. Denis also stated he did not like the information on Twitter about himself and or #RobertTroy.

End of Meeting

Well Denis we don’t like the fact that you did nothing for us. How come it was Clare Daly TD who attempted to question Tanaiste and Minster for Justice re #Roscommon #Gardai entering Elderly Mike Gavin’s Home? Where were you Denis Naughton TD. As for twitter don’t you recall you blocked @michaelgavin83 as did #RobertToryTD, although Troy did go on to sign one of Mike Gavin’s petitions on the day of voting.

Our justice system is repeatedly and systematically failing us. Worse than that, it seams that many of those in exalted positions of authority such as yourself Denis Naughten TD, Robert Troy TD, #WilliePenroseTD, Tony Henry Tormeys Solicitors Athlone,  #TonyMcLynn T&N Mc Lynn Solicitors Athlone, Robert B. Marren Solicitor Mullingar, #PeterDJones State Solicitor #Mullingar and the #LawSocietyofIreland are greatly abusing our trust. It would appear that in #Ireland if the perpetrators are in any way “connected” then our justice system is far more likely to throw up a wall of protection and denials around them.

Don’t be surprise if a peaceful assembly protest arrives at your door in the coming days to express dissatisfaction at the Job your not doing

Have a Nice Day!

Against the constitution to stand up to Solicitors Corruption and Financial Elder Abuse DENIS NAUGHTEN??

  1. Robert Marren Solicitor refused to award Michael Gavin the grant money’s paid down from the Dept. of Agriculture. Michael is owed over €116,000 for 9 years minding the farm Animals.
  1. Robert Marren Solicitor held onto the funds from the land sale for nearly 2 years, and then finally awarded to Michael Gavin and his sister €12,500 plus interest less than what we were each entitled to.
  1. Willie Penrose TD BL was not paid for his opinion, when the estate was charged for same.
  1. Robert Marren Solicitor Squandered the estate assets and hired an additional accountant at a cost of €8,751.45.
  1. Marren did not provide a “detailed bill of costs” for his fee of €40,892.53 he awarded to himself.
  1. No bill of costs was provided for T & N McLynn Solicitors, Athlone, paid an amount of €38,941 a year prior to closing.
  1. Tony Henry, Tormeys Solicitors, Athlone failed to undertake the instructions given him through John Glynn Solicitors to prevent Mr. Robert Marren closing in isolation to well founded objections.

To commit fraud is an offense in Ireland. But the prosecution will depend very much on where you reside on the social scale!

Peter Jones is the #FiannaFail appointed State #Solicitor for #Westmeath. He is now more than 2 decades in this position. Peter Jones is a right wing conservative on moral issues and he has been against every piece of reformist referenda for decades, including the Divorce Referendum of 1995. Only a few years ago, Peter Jones had 8 #PENALTY POINTS corruptly and illegally removed, a matter which appeared in the Phoenix Magazine at the time. Peter Jones is now threatening an 83 year old farmer. Is it not enough for 83 year old Mike Gavin to have been defrauded of a large sum of money by Mr. Jones’s friend and fellow Mullingar solicitor Robert Marron? Is there nothing so low as to what the legal profession in Mullingar will stoop to? Just as you thought that they could not sink any lower by defrauding an elderly farmer, they are now threatening him.

Gardai Interrogate Elderly Mike Gavin in his home

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 Wednesday when and got Mike home alone. Mike Gavin describes here what happened.

Financial Elder Abuse of Michael Gavin RIP by Tony Mclynn Solicitor Athlone

Tony Mclynn Solicitor Athlone

tnfront-1

A High Court Special Summons was sought to sell the roof over my head among other things by Tony Mclynn Solicitor Athlone.

“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.”

Bearing in mind that they and their Solicitor Tony Mclynn Solicitor of 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 with Tony Mclynn Solicitor 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 with their solicitor Tony Mclynn Solicitor squandered the Estate assets.

beneficiaries-11

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.

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

They with the help of their solicitor Tony Mclynn Solicitor 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 with the help of their solicitor Tony Mclynn Solicitor 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.

MemorialCard-2

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.

Letter to Robert Marren Solicitor Mullingar. Michael Gavin Fighting for Justice

robertbmarren

 

Mr Robert Marren                                                                                           Dundonnell

Castle Street,                                                                                                   Taughmaconnell,

Mullingar                                                                                                         Co. Roscommon.

Co. Westmeath.

 

Date: 11/07/2015

 

Mr. Marren,

 

Further to the letter my brother Michael Gavin and I received from John Glynn, Solicitor Patrick Hogan & Co. on 9th July 2015 which states

“I telephoned Mr. Marren today to enquire why I had not received payment on the basis that absolutely everybody else in the Estate has been paid and his response was that he continued to receive letters from you complaining about fees while threatening to go to the Law Society. He said he was not prepared to pay out my fees while these threats existed.”

The letter also states

“it would appear he will not pay out these fees unless you write him and confirm to him that you are not objecting to my fees and direct him to pay same. If you are not prepared to do so, you will leave me with no choice but to proceed to taxation of costs and then subsequently. I will be obliged to sue Mr. Marren for recovery of my fees. This is grossly unfair situation in that Pat is dead almost ten years. I have not been paid for any of my services rendered either to you or to the Estate over that period.”

Our objections to the above are as follows;

We do not consider our reporting you 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, by you the administrator and the beneficiaries of the Estate to the extent that it constitutes ELDER ABUSE.

In the event that the Law Society of Ireland does not accept that our 8 complaints of inadequate professional services, alleged over charging and misconduct, warrant investigation we have every intention of referring this matter to the independent Adjudicator, the solicitors disciplinary tribunal Dublin , An Garda Síochána and the Health Service Executive HSE. 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.

While we have every intent of pursuing you vigorously to meet our demands to include recovery of the funds not distributed to us to date, we fail to see the logic to your persistent reluctance to pay Patrick Hogan & Co. in isolation to our efforts to seek justice in this matter, or “threats” as you put it.

This is reminiscent of the manner in which you dealt with paying out our 1/6 share from the sale of the Estate lands. Here again despite our persistent requests you 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 you 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 your possession nearly 2 years previously. You have yet to provide a reasonable explanation of why you did not “bite the bullet” and pay over the full amount when you Mr. Robert Marren received the funds way back on 27th of May 2013.

Do you not recall that I wrote to you on 11th April 2015 and stated “Please advise us of any outstanding bills, has John Glynn, Hogan & Co. been paid to date, and if not why not.”

I believe this should make it clear to you that there is no objection to Patrick Hogan & Co. fee being paid.

In your response on 22nd April you Mr. Marren state “Mr Tony Mclynn 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.”

Based on your response we felt that the fees to Patrick Hogan & Co. were paid. However if you felt we objected to the fees to Patrick Hogan & Co. why did you not question the issue then.

We have never ever threatened you in any way, and most certainly not in regard to fees to Patrick Hogan & Co.

It would appear to us your reluctance Mr. Marren to paying the fee to Patrick Hogan & Co. in isolation of our “threats” as you put it are just another example of your BULLY BOY TACTICS and we do not appreciate the manner in which you Mr. Marren attempt to force us to concede to your demands by refusing to “pay out Patrick Hogan & Co. fees while these threats exist”.

You may also recall a letter was also sent to your office in Mullingar on 17TH of June 2015 stating the following;

“I take issue with your reluctance to provide a detailed breakdown of how the figure of €40,892.53 representing fees paid to Robert Marren & Co. were arrived at. I also feel I am entitled to a breakdown of all other fees paid out of the Estate funds and who was paid what at closing.

I also take issue with your persistent reluctance to provide the following

  1. Bill of Cost for T & N McLynn, Solicitors, Athlone
  2. Correct invoice for Catherine O’Conner. Her invoice states Total Amount Due €584.25 while Cash Account dated 18th July, 2014 “Fees paid to Catherine O’ Connor €6,857.25.
  3. Invoice for William Penrose B.L. or explanation of why his opinion was sought.
  4. Invoice for John Dolan Auctioneer and breakdown of the handsome fee he was paid.
  5. Answer to “has John Glynn, Hogan & Co. Ballinasloe been paid to date, and if not why not”?
  6. Answer to “has John Glynn, Hogan & Co. Ballinasloe been paid to date, and if not why not”?
  7. Any outstanding bills.”

We have yet to receive a response to that letter above which we sent register post notwithstanding the fact that these questions were posed to you in previous correspondence numerous times prior and regardless we have a right to be furnished with copies of same. You Mr. Robert Marren will note that points 5 and 6 of that letter of 17TH of June 2015, are one in the same and we underlined if not why not”? in an effort to draw your attention to same which apparently you have yet to do.

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 to your finalised distribution during the Christmas period 2014-2015.

When exactly was T & N McLynn, Solicitors, Athlone paid and why were they paid in advance of the finalised distribution while you refused to pay our 1/6 share of the land from auction or fees to Patrick Hogan & Co.??

tnfront-1

You did not seek our approval for T & N McLynn, Solicitors bill nor did you request if we objected to same after they represented the other side beneficiaries who put the Estate of my late brother Patrick Gavin to enormous legal expense with their High Court Special Summons where they 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.”

Bearing in mind that the beneficiaries namely Anne Sanford, Kathleen O’Keefe, Mike Harte, Brenda Harte Waters, Michelle Harte, Philomena Duffy, Patrick Duffy, Catherine Duffy and Noel Duffy and their Solicitor T & N McLynn were well aware that Michael Gavin was entitled to live in the home for the rest of his days per his father’s will which they were all furnished with a copy of. As we recall we were required to attend the high court on 3 separate days, the first of which none of the beneficiaries attended. On the second day we were informed by our 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 behaviour where they squandered the Estate assets. Not to mention the inconvenience, and additional expenses that were incurred to hire a man to mind the “Estate Animals” for 3 days, there was no mention of any funds to cover that cost in your finalised distribution.

On another occasion which we kept you update on, we recall one of the beneficiaries Kathleen O’Keefe rushed us into signing a lease agreement on 27th August, 2014 without providing us an opportunity to read over same carefully or to consider the matter. Consequently we were forced to get legal advice in order to amend a number of the conditions including Michael Gavin’s 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 us and highlights the inadequate professional service provided by their 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 us to incur additional unnecessary expenses for legal advice to draft letters in response to the lease agreement Kathleen O’Keefe tricked me Michael Gavin into signing.

You have not provided the correct invoice for Catherine O’Conner. Her invoice states Total Amount Due €584.25 while Cash Account dated 18th July, 2014 “Fees paid to Catherine O’ Connor €6,857.25.

You did not seek our approval for seeking William Penrose B.L opinionNo Invoice for William Penrose B.L. or explanation of why his opinion was sought.

You did not seek our approval for John Dolan AuctioneerNo Invoice for John Dolan Auctioneer and breakdown of the fee he was paid was provided to us to date. As we recall the auctioneer John Dolan did advertise the auction extensively and I recall full and half page ads appeared in the local newspapers. We 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. To be honest a free mention in the local parish newsletter would have sufficed.

You did not seek our approval for Damien Hannigan & Company Limited Chartered Accountant, Mullingar. Why was he hired against our explicate wishes to oversee the accounts of Catherine O’Conner. He charged in my opinion an excessive fee of €8,751.45 which we consider to be extremely expensive and an unnecessary expense. Although he was hired to oversee the accounts his fee is in excess of Catherine O’Conner’s fee. John Glynn, Solicitor, Patrick Hogan & Co. did not put the Estate to the additional expense of hiring an additional Accountant so it begs the question why did you?

I fail to understand why you now require me to write you and confirm to you that we are not objecting to Patrick Hogan & Co. fees and direct you to pay same. I feel this has being dealt with adequately in previous correspondence as above and I fail to understand your logic as to why this is the only bill out of them all that you require us to approve.

It would appear that there is a personal axe to grind between your own good self and John Glynn, Solicitor, Patrick Hogan & Co. and you have no business drawing us into your personal battles between members of your own profession.

In our opinion it would be more befitting of you to write to each of the beneficiaries namely

It would appear that you Mr. Robert Marren delayed making the decision regarding 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 18thSeptember, 2014. Michael Gavin was lied to countless times and led to believe that he would be refunded at closing by some of the beneficiaries. Why did you Mr. Robert 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 refused to award him the net amount €xxx,xxx.11 due to Michael Gavin out of the Single Payment Entitlements representing my ½ share in the profits from farming the lands, which was also sent to you on the 5th of December, 2015 for your consideration. There is no good reason why you took advantage of Michael Gavin’s good nature and delayed his decision in this matter until the end.

You would have received a letter from Michael Gavin on 5th December, 2014 stating;

“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 you passed the book to us and demanded court proceedings to prevent the distribution in a short space of time over the Christmas period 2014-2015.

We believe that you Mr. Robert Marren should NOT have finalised the distribution without addressing our objections, and it appears you 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.

tony-henry-intro

It would also appear that Mr. Henry of Tormeys Solicitors, Athlone facilitated you Mr. Marren by not phoning you or writing you immediately as requested by John Glynn Solicitor, (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 Marren’s threat to effect a distribution of the Estate.) nor did Mr. Henry of Tormeys Solicitors, Athlone inform us, so that we could engage another Solicitor to act on behalf of Michael Gavin and Eileen Linney.

We have difficulty understanding why Mr. Henry of Tormeys Solicitors, Athlone failed to respond to correspondence, including correspondence that was crucial and significant to us.

At a subsequent meeting with Mr. Henry after your closing he estimated that court proceedings to sue you 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 my age (83) into consideration.

It would appear you allowed confusion to arise in relation to the exact disbursement of funds and showed a complete disregard for the interests of the beneficiaries, whom you, Mr. Robert Marren a Solicitor, knew to be ELDERLY, and by your conduct is depriving two of the ELDERLY beneficiaries, of the enjoyment of their share in the estate. You have also forced Michael Gavin and Eileen Linney to incur additional unnecessary expenses in drafting documents and letters time and time again to prove their claim.

Yours Faithfully

Michael Gavin

Peter D Jones State Solicitor Mullingar Threatened Michael Gavin RIP

peterdjones-4

Peter D Jones State Solicitor Mullingar Threatens 84 Yr Old

#Peter D Jones of Peter D Jones & Co #Solicitors #Mullingar why do you act for #RobertBMarren #Solicitor Mullingar? Surly Mr. Marren a solicitor of the highest integrity and respected as an honest and upright person should be able to stand up and act for himself against 84 year Old Elderly Michael Gavin of limited means as you so put it above in your April fools letter.

The Justice for Michael Gavin group would disagree with you, that the PEACEFUL protests they are conducting in relation to Mr. Marren’s functions as administrator / solicitor are unwarranted and unfair.

We do not agree with your statement that every opportunity was afforded prior to the distribution of the estate to challenge him in relation to his intention to distribute the estate in accordance with the rules of intestacy.

As far as we are concerned if Mr. Robert B. Marren did his job as appointed by the #HighCourt, there would be no need to challenge him in the first place. However after numerous attempts were made to put a halt to Mr. Marren distribution of the estate assets in isolation to well found objections, Mr. Marren your client threatened elderly Michael Gavin and widowed sister Eileen Linney.

Mr. Marren Solicitor refused to pay out Michael Gavin and his sister Eileen Linneys share of the proceeds from the land sale despite the fact that he had same in his possession for nearly 2 years.

He went on to threaten them that he intended to distribute the Estate Assets if they did not hire a Solicitor to issue proceedings to prevent him doing so despite their founded objections, namely €116,789.11 compensation for minding the animals for 9 years and the amount awarded to each for the land sale was short €12,500 each plus interest from the time Mr. Marren Received the funds.

Instructions were given to #TonyHenry Tormeys Solicitors Athlone through their family Solicitor John Glynn Patrick Hogan & Co. Ballinasloe, to engage with Mr. Robert Marren on their behalf. However Tony Henry, Tormeys Solicitor did not undertake these instructions, nor did he inform them. So Michael and Eileen did not realize what had happened until the deficient checks arrived in the post.correct

What signage are you referring to that has been placed on poles around Mullingar which is totally incorrect unfair and untrue?

Peter-Jones-Mike-Gavin-01-04-2016-image-1

Mr. Peter D Jones of Peter D Jones & Co Solicitors Mullingar, why did your client Robert B. Marren

  • Deprives an elderly farmer  the grant money’s paid down from the Dept. of Agriculture. John Glynn Solicitor estimated Michael is owed over €116,000 for 9 years minding the farm Animals?
  • holds onto the funds from the land sale for nearly 2 years, and then finally awarded to Michael Gavin and his sister €12,500 plus interest less than what we were each entitled to ?
  • Not provide an invoice for Willie Penrose’s opinion when the estate was charged for same?
  •  Squander the estate assets and hire an additional accountant at a cost of €8,751.45 to the estate
  • not provide a “detailed bill of costs” for his fee of €40,892.53 he awarded to himself.
  • not provided a bill of costs for T & N McLynn Solicitors, Athlone, paid an amount of €38,941 a year prior to closing. They brought Mike to the High Court 3 days attempting to sell the roof over his head.
  • not seek a court order to determine how the estate should be administered when their were well founded objections
  • follow the instructions of Katheen O’Keefe and Anne Sanford and treat them as his clients, when in fact they were beneficiaries of the Estate the same as Michael Gavin and Eileen Linney?

We take exception to your threatening tone of your letter and your remark that “Mr. Michael Gavin is an elderly man and no less than anybody else is a person of limited means”. We have every right to peaceful protest outside Mr. Robert B. Marren’s Office and your office for that matter Mr. Peter D. Jones State Solicitor and we will continue to do so until justice is served.

Why have you  and Mr. Marren waited until now to object to our campaign for justice. We wrote to your client on  11/07/2015 and informed him that

“In the event that the Law Society of Ireland does not accept that our 8 complaints of inadequate professional services, alleged over charging and misconduct, warrant investigation we have every intention of referring this matter to the independent Adjudicator, the solicitors disciplinary tribunal Dublin , An Garda Síochána and the Health Service Executive HSE. 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.

Peter D. Jones of Peter D. Jones & Co Solicitors Mullingar your client Mr. Robert Marren Solicitor has no one to blame but himself and his aroganct reluctance to respond to our correspondence.

Your client Mr. Robert B. Marren  may also recall a letter was also sent to your office in Mullingar on 17TH of June 2015 stating the following;

“I take issue with your reluctance to provide a detailed breakdown of how the figure of €40,892.53 representing fees paid to Robert Marren & Co. were arrived at. I also feel I am entitled to a breakdown of all other fees paid out of the Estate funds and who was paid what at closing.

I also take issue with your persistent reluctance to provide the following

Bill of Cost for T & N McLynn, Solicitors, Athlone

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

We have yet to receive a response to that letter above which we sent register post notwithstanding the fact that these questions were posed to you in previous correspondence numerous times prior and regardless we have a right to be furnished with copies of same.

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 to your finalised distribution during the Christmas period 2014-2015.

beneficiaries-11

Mr. Peter D. Jones of Peter D. Jones & Co Solicitors Mullingar, in our opinion it would be more befitting of your client to write to each of the beneficiaries namely #AnneSanford, #Wellesley, #Massachusetts USA, Kathleen O’Keefe, #Glanmire, Cork, Mike Harte, Wellesley Massachusetts USA, Brenda Harte Waters Quincy, Mass USA, Michelle Harte Wellesley Massachusetts USA, Philomena Duffy Davitt College Castlebar Mayo, Patrick Duffy, Kilrush, Clare, Catherine Kelly Duffy, Portceuncilla hospital Ballinasloe and Noel Duffy, Athlone, as I have done  and claw back the monies owed to us.

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.

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.

We and those we have spoken to in relation to this matter FAIL to see the logic to your reluctance Mr. Robert Marren to see reason in this matter, how do you expect a person to labour for free for 9 years at their 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 Michael Gavin 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.

By denying me Michael Gavin a half share in the profits it means that Michael Gavin WAS WORKING FOR NOTHING over the years in question from October, 2005 through to 2013. This is totally unjust and totally unacceptable to us.

We will not accept the present situation which is totally unfair and leaves Michael Gavin without any compensation whatsoever for the time and trouble in looking after the animals on behalf of the estate and also deprives Michael Gavin of any profit he may have earned in the rearing and looking after his own animals.

The detailed breakdown of the net amount €116,789.11 due to Michael Gavin out of the Single Payment Entitlements representing his ½ share in the profits from farming the lands, was  sent to your client Mr. Marren, Solicitor, on the 5th of December, 2015 for his consideration. You will note that all that Michael Gavin is looking for is his fair share of the profits in the running of the farm and fair compensation for the work Michael Gavin did in looking after the animals.

It would appear that your client Mr. Robert Marren delayed making the decision regarding 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 countless times and led to believe that he would be refunded at closing by some of the beneficiaries.

13094132_301138173550622_8337003707737119246_n

Why did your client Mr. Robert 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 refused to award him the net amount €116,789.11 due to Michael Gavin out of the Single Payment Entitlements representing my ½ share in the profits from farming the lands, which was also sent to your client on the 5th of December, 2015 for his consideration. There is no good reason why your client took advantage of Michael Gavin’s good nature and delayed his decision in this matter until the end.

Your client would have received a letter from Michael Gavin on 5th December, 2014 stating;

“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 your client Mr. Marren passed the book to us and demanded court proceedings to prevent the distribution in a short space of time over the Christmas period 2014-2015.

We believe that your client 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.

It would also appear that Mr. Henry of Tormeys Solicitors, Athlone facilitated your client Mr. Marren by not phoning  him or writing him immediately as requested by John Glynn Solicitor, (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 Marren’s threat to effect a distribution of the Estate.) nor did Mr. Henry of Tormeys Solicitors, Athlone inform us, so that we could engage another Solicitor to act on  behalf of Michael Gavin and Eileen Linney.

We have difficulty understanding why Mr. Henry of Tormeys Solicitors, Athlone failed to respond to correspondence, including correspondence that was crucial and significant to us.

At a subsequent meeting with Mr. Henry after your closing he estimated that court proceedings to sue you 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 my age (83) into consideration.

It would appear you allowed confusion to arise in relation to the exact disbursement of funds and showed a complete disregard for the interests of the beneficiaries, whom you, Mr. Robert Marren a Solicitor, knew to be ELDERLY, and by your conduct is depriving two of the ELDERLY beneficiaries, of the enjoyment of their share in the estate. You have also forced Michael Gavin and Eileen Linney to incur additional unnecessary expenses in drafting documents and letters time and time again to prove their claim.

Bones of Contention

With Mr. Robert B. Marren Solicitor Mullingar

  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. The legal and auctioneering fees are excessive, and Michael Gavin and Eileen Linney should not be charged for same as the beneficiaries on the other side 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 Michael Gavin a share in the farming profits, to the extent that Michael Gavin 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 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 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 elderly Michael Gavin and widowed Eileen Linney to incur additional unnecessary expenses in drafting documents and letters time and time again to prove their 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. Auctioneer John Dolan did advertise the auction extensively with full and half page ads in the local newspapers. However based on the amount of interest and bids made at the auction, these ads served no purpose other than to promote John Dolans Auctioneering service as a whole. A free mention in the local parish newsletter would have sufficed.

History of the case

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, Michael Gavin continued farming and caring for the farm animals as he had always done.

The Department of Agriculture appointed Michael Gavin herd keeper for the animals after his brother’s death. Robert Marren Solicitor refused to award Michael compensation from the grant moneys paid down from the department.

If Michael Gavin did not continue the farming of the land then the estate would not be entitled to claim the Entitlements.

Michael Gavin offered to buy the farm from the next of kin beneficiaries, but they would agree to nothing and matters came to a head when under the guidance of Tony McLynn Solicitor Athlone they summoned Michael to the High Court in Dublin in an effort to sell the house along with the farm, making out that they would have difficulty selling the farm on its own. Their Solicitor #Tony McLynn of T&N McLynn Solicitors, Athlone was well aware that Michael had a right to reside in the family home for the rest of my days as per my fathers will, but that did not prevent them squandering the Estate Assets. Three days in total were spent in the High court, the first of which they did not attend, the second they spent in a waiting room arguing among themselves and on the phone to other beneficiaries in the United States of America. Finally on the third day the Judge refused their request to sell the roof over his head.

The High Court appointed Robert Marren Solictor, Mullingar administrator for the estate. Subsequently Michael Gavin and his sister Eileen Linney had one and only one meeting with Mr. Robert Marren Solicitor at his office located on Castle Street Mullingar, at which he enquired if they had their wills made. He informed them he intended to hire an additional accountant to oversee the accounts. Michael Gavin and Eileen Linney profusely objected to this and told him it was an unnecessary expense for the estate, but he bulldozed ahead regardless.

The issue of non-payment of grants from the Department of Agriculture to Michael Gavin the appointed herd keeper eat up many a letter and despite the fact that 2 of his estranged sisters Anne Sanford, Wellesley, Mass USA & Kathleen O’Keefe, Glanmire, Cork promised to buy feed stuffs and also promised that he would be reimbursed at closing. Michael never got a cent and in essence he was forced to use my old age pension and savings to feed the animals that would have starved otherwise for 9 years. They had no objection to accepting the gross payments from the sale of the animals, and although Mr Marren “made a decision” to finally accept his claim to owning half of the cattle and all of the sheep he could not see the logic to paying out the grant monies associated with same.

The beneficiaries failed to accept that Michael Gavin is entitled to half the farming profits (i.e. half the net proceeds of the Department of Agriculture Grants from 2005-2013 inclusive, after deduction 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 me in looking after the deceased’s animals over the period.

How can the estate expect to have it both ways? 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 Michael should be paid reasonable farm labours wages and refunds for the expenses incurred in running the farm as appointed herd keeper by the Department of Agriculture.

Anne Sanford, Kathleen O’Keefe and the next of kin namely Mike Harte, Brenda Harte Waters, Michelle Harte, Philomena Duffy, Patrick Duffy, Catherine Duffy Kelly and Noel Duffy 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.

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.

Those we have spoken to in relation to this matter FAIL to see the logic to the beneficiaries reluctance to see reason in this matter, how do they expect Michael Gavin to labour for free for 9 years at his 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. Michael Gavin believes with every bone in his body that he is entitled to be paid for the work done and services rendered and monies expended by him in looking after his 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.

By denying Michael Gavin a half share in the profits it means that Michael Gavin WAS WORKING FOR NOTHING over the years in question from October, 2005 through to 2013. This is totally unjust and totally unacceptable.

Michael Gavin will not accept the present situation which is totally unfair and leaves him without any compensation whatsoever for his time and trouble in looking after the animals on behalf of the estate and also deprives Michael Gavin of any profit he may have earned in the rearing and looking after his own animals.

Please find enclosed a detailed breakdown of the net amount €116,789.11 due to Michael Gavin out of the Single Payment Entitlements representing his ½ share in the profits from farming the lands, which was also sent to Mr. Robert B. Marren, Solicitor, on the 5th of December, 2015 for his consideration. You will note that all Michael is looking for is my fair share of the profits in the running of the farm and fair compensation for the work I did in looking after the animals.

The lands were eventually auctioned and Michael Gavins 2 estranged sisters Anne Sanford, Wellesley, Mass USA & Kathleen O’Keefe, Glanmire, Cork 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. They visited with Michael twice and requested that he buy the property of them and then suggested they would put the land up for sale but never did.

Mr. Marren Solicitor refused to pay out Michael Gavin and his sister Eileen Linneys share of the proceeds from the land sale despite the fact that he had same in his possession for nearly 2 years. He went on to threaten them that he intended to distribute the Estate Assets if they did not hire a Solicitor to issue proceedings to prevent him doing so despite their founded objections, namely €116,789.11 compensation for minding the animals for 9 years and the amount awarded to each for the land sale was short €12,500 each plus interest from the time Mr. Marren Received the funds.

Instructions were given to Tony Henry Tormeys Solicitors Athlone through their family Solicitor John Glynn Patrick Hogan & Co. Ballinasloe, to engage with Mr. Robert Marren on their behalf. However Tony Henry, Tormeys Solicitor did not undertake these instructions, nor did he inform them. So Michael and Eileen did not realize what had happened until the deficient checks arrived in the post.

Michael and Eileen met with Mr. Tony Henry Tormeys Solicitors Athlone, some 2 weeks after, however he saw no fault in what he done or failed to do for that matter. He suggested they could engage him to sue Mr. Marren at a cost of up to €100,000, 3 years in court and advised Michael to take his age of 83 years into consideration.

Complaints were made to the Law Society of Ireland with regard to Mr Robert Marrens Administration of the Estate and Mr. Tony Henry Tormeys Solicitors Failure to undertake explicit instructions. Needless to say no fault was found. Then Tony Henry had a cheek to scribe the letter he did to Eileen Linney a defenceless widow. The letter arrived the day before the letter from the Independent Adjudicator’s who, no surprise found no fault in the manner in which the Law Society of Ireland dealt with the complaints made. Begs the question how come Henry knew before they did and why did he not act as speedily to undertake the instructions given him on their behalf originally?

Michael and Eileen were later informed that Robert Marren refused to pay John Glynn, Solicitor, Patrick Hogan & Co. until they stopped threatening him as he puts it by reporting him to the Law Society of Ireland. Also an activist via social media told them that Willie Penrose TD BL stated he had not received his payment from Robert Marren, Solicitor, Mullingar. When this was reported to the Law Society they threatened to block further emails.

Peter D Jones State Solicitor PENALTY POINTS

peterdjones

THE STATE Solicitor for Westmeath, Peter Jones, has avoided a possible total of eight penalty points being added to his driver’s licence because points were either terminated, court summonses were not served on him, or on one occasion, a case against him was struck out. The penalty points related to four separate occasions in which Jones was recorded as speeding on dates in 2011 and 2012.
Goldhawk has learned that in January 2011, Jones was recorded as speeding (doing 103 km/h in an 80 km/h zone) at the Chapelizod bypass in Dublin. He was liable to receive two points on his licence but the case against him was struck out in Dublin District Court. On 14 January 2012, at 4.36pm, Jones was once again recorded as speeding (doing 90 km/h in an 80 km/h zone) at Tullamore, Co Offaly, for which he was liable to receive two penalty points. However, those points were terminated. The reason given for the termination was that Jones was apparently en route to court
with prosecution files in an “urgent case.”

That particular day was a Saturday, so presumably if Jones was on his way to an “urgent case”, the court hearing would have been an emergency sitting. Elsewhere, on 6 May 2012, Jones was recorded doing 102 km/h in an 80 km/h zone at the Lucan by-pass in Liffey Valley, Dublin, for which two penalty points could be added to his licence.

However, the summons for this offence – for which Jones was to appear before Dublin District Court – was never served. Finally, Jones was recorded speeding at the same area the following month – this time doing 101 km/h in an 80 km/h zone – and once again, he was liable to receive two penalty points and appear before Dublin District Court. However, yet again, a summons was not served in the case.

Goldhawk contacted Jones – who practises as Peter D Jones in Mullingar, Co Westmeath – repeatedly over the last number of weeks to seek comment in relation to the penalty points. He refused to respond to these queries and last week, Goldhawk was told by a representative in his office that the office “doesn’t deal with journalists.”

The former Irish Independent journalist Gemma O’Doherty had been planning on writing a story on Jones’s penalty points earlier this year and had submitted a number of queries to the legal eagle last May. O’Doherty was later selected for “redundancy” after she door-stepped Garda Commissioner Martin Callinan.

Peter Jones is the Fianna Fail appointed State ‪#‎Solicitor‬ for ‪#‎Westmeath‬. He is now more than 2 decades in this position. Peter Jones is a right wing conservative on moral issues and he has been against every piece of reformist referenda for decades, including the Divorce Referendum of 1995. Only a few years ago, Peter Jones had 8 PENALTY POINTS corruptly and illegally removed, a matter which appeared in the Phoenix Magazine at the time.

Peter Jones is now threatening an 83 year old farmer (see print highlighted in yellow). Is it not enough for 83 year old Mike Gavin to have been defrauded of a large sum of money by Mr. Jones’s friend and fellow Mullingar solicitor Robert Marron?

Is there nothing so low as to what the legal profession in Mullingar will stoop to? Just as you thought that they could not sink any lower by defrauding an elderly farmer, they are now threatening him.

He is currently using the farm lands at Dundonnell. He has phoned me demanding the keys to the house and states by law he has the rights to the keys. He stated that he intends to sell the home in March 2019. He claimed to local person in a recorded phone conversation that all the family are in agreement to sell the home and he has filed signed agreement with the district courts. This is a lie as I did not sign any agreement with Lawrence McManus nor did I meet with him.

  2. Why did you Robert B. Marren hold on to the funds from the land sale for nearly 2 years?
  3. Why did you Robert B. Marren award me Elderly Michael Gavin and my widowed sister €12,500 plus interest less than what they were entitled to?
  4. Why did you Robert B. Marren deduct €3,500 from Eileen Linney for Animals she never owned?
  5. Why was no invoice provided for William Penrose’s TD BL opinion?

  15. Why did T & N McLynn Solicitors, Athlone summon (special)me Mike Gavin and Eileen Linney to the High Court attempting to sell my home along with the farm and failed after three days squandering estate assets with fees in the High Court?      https://youtu.be/5xc4szyymjY
  16. Why was no bill of costs provided for T & N McLynn Solicitors, Athlone, paid an amount of €38,941 a year prior to the distribution of the estate assets?
  17. Why do you Robert Marren refuse to provide answers to these and other questions?
  18. Why Have you Robert B. Marren retained Peter D. Jones  Mullingar State Solicitor to represent you?

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??

Michael Gavin

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.

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

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.”

Robert your Re-Tweet speaks volumes thank you for your support for my campaign for #Justice that originally started on July 8, 2015 when I was informed that Mr. Robert Marren, Solicitor your neighbor on Castle Street Mullingar refused to pay our family Solicitor his fee while we threaten to seek Justice through the law Society as he put it. Please click on this link to view our response to Mr. Rober Marren’s refusal to pay the fee of our family Solicitor and I believe you will get an idea of what we are dealing with.

While I do appreciate your offer to come to your office in Athlone to discuses the matter, I fail to see what use it would serve.

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.

I believe that it is they that need to meet with you and explain their reason for treating my sister and I in the manner that they did.

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 did Robert Marren Solicitor Mullingar refuse to award me Michael Gavin the Grant monies paid down from the Department of Agriculture?
  3. Why did Robert Marren Solicitor Mullingar refuse to pay me for time spent and services rendered in looking after the Estate animals?

“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!

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;

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!

Letter to Justice Mary Laffoy

Sign the petition

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: 22942/L/19/7

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 Gavin

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

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,

Aiden O’Carroll

Date: 11/07/2015

 

Mr. Marren,

 

Further to the letter my brother Michael Gavin and I received from John Glynn, Solicitor Patrick Hogan & Co. on 9th July 2015 which states

“I telephoned Mr. Marren today to enquire why I had not received payment on the basis that absolutely everybody else in the Estate has been paid and his response was that he continued to receive letters from you complaining about fees while threatening to go to the Law Society. He said he was not prepared to pay out my fees while these threats existed.”

The letter also states

“it would appear he will not pay out these fees unless you write him and confirm to him that you are not objecting to my fees and direct him to pay same. If you are not prepared to do so, you will leave me with no choice but to proceed to taxation of costs and then subsequently. I will be obliged to sue Mr. Marren for recovery of my fees. This is grossly unfair situation in that Pat is dead almost ten years. I have not been paid for any of my services rendered either to you or to the Estate over that period.”

Our objections to the above are as follows;

We do not consider our reporting you 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, by you the administrator and the beneficiaries of the Estate to the extent that it constitutes ELDER ABUSE.

In the event that the Law Society of Ireland does not accept that our 8 complaints of inadequate professional services, alleged over charging and misconduct, warrant investigation we have every intention of referring this matter to the independent Adjudicator, the solicitors disciplinary tribunal Dublin , An Garda Síochána and the Health Service Executive HSE. 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.

While we have every intent of pursuing you vigorously to meet our demands to include recovery of the funds not distributed to us to date, we fail to see the logic to your persistent reluctance to pay Patrick Hogan & Co. in isolation to our efforts to seek justice in this matter, or “threats” as you put it.

This is reminiscent of the manner in which you dealt with paying out our 1/6 share from the sale of the Estate lands. Here again despite our persistent requests you 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 you 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 your possession nearly 2 years previously. You have yet to provide a reasonable explanation of why you did not “bite the bullet” and pay over the full amount when you Mr. Robert Marren received the funds way back on 27th of May 2013.

Do you not recall that I wrote to you on 11th April 2015 and stated “Please advise us of any outstanding bills, has John Glynn, Hogan & Co. been paid to date, and if not why not.”

I believe this should make it clear to you that there is no objection to Patrick Hogan & Co. fee being paid.

In your response on 22nd April you Mr. Marren state “Mr Tony Mclynn 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.”

Based on your response we felt that the fees to Patrick Hogan & Co. were paid. However if you felt we objected to the fees to Patrick Hogan & Co. why did you not question the issue then.

We have never ever threatened you in any way, and most certainly not in regard to fees to Patrick Hogan & Co.

It would appear to us your reluctance Mr. Marren to paying the fee to Patrick Hogan & Co. in isolation of our “threats” as you put it are just another example of your BULLY BOY TACTICS and we do not appreciate the manner in which you Mr. Marren attempt to force us to concede to your demands by refusing to “pay out Patrick Hogan & Co. fees while these threats exist”.

You may also recall a letter was also sent to your office in Mullingar on 17TH of June 2015 stating the following;

“I take issue with your reluctance to provide a detailed breakdown of how the figure of €40,892.53 representing fees paid to Robert Marren & Co. were arrived at. I also feel I am entitled to a breakdown of all other fees paid out of the Estate funds and who was paid what at closing.

I also take issue with your persistent reluctance to provide the following

  1. Bill of Cost for T & N McLynn, Solicitors, Athlone
  2. Correct invoice for Catherine O’Conner. Her invoice states Total Amount Due €584.25 while Cash Account dated 18th July, 2014 “Fees paid to Catherine O’ Connor €6,857.25.
  3. Invoice for William Penrose B.L. or explanation of why his opinion was sought.
  4. Invoice for John Dolan Auctioneer and breakdown of the handsome fee he was paid.
  5. Answer to “has John Glynn, Hogan & Co. Ballinasloe been paid to date, and if not why not”?
  6. Answer to “has John Glynn, Hogan & Co. Ballinasloe been paid to date, and if not why not”?
  7. Any outstanding bills.”

We have yet to receive a response to that letter above which we sent register post notwithstanding the fact that these questions were posed to you in previous correspondence numerous times prior and regardless we have a right to be furnished with copies of same. You Mr. Robert Marren will note that points 5 and 6 of that letter of 17TH of June 2015, are one in the same and we underlined if not why not”? in an effort to draw your attention to same which apparently you have yet to do.

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 to your finalised distribution during the Christmas period 2014-2015.

When exactly was T & N McLynn, Solicitors, Athlone paid and why were they paid in advance of the finalised distribution while you refused to pay our 1/6 share of the land from auction or fees to Patrick Hogan & Co.??

You did not seek our approval for T & N McLynn, Solicitors bill nor did you request if we objected to same after they represented the other side beneficiaries who put the Estate of my late brother Patrick Gavin to enormous legal expense with their High Court Special Summons where they 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.”

Bearing in mind that the beneficiaries namely Anne Sanford, Kathleen O’Keefe, Mike Harte, Brenda Harte Waters, Michelle Harte, Philomena Duffy, Patrick Duffy, Catherine Duffy and Noel Duffy and their Solicitor T & N McLynn were well aware that Michael Gavin was entitled to live in the home for the rest of his days per his father’s will which they were all furnished with a copy of. As we recall we were required to attend the high court on 3 separate days, the first of which none of the beneficiaries attended. On the second day we were informed by our 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 behaviour where they squandered the Estate assets. Not to mention the inconvenience, and additional expenses that were incurred to hire a man to mind the “Estate Animals” for 3 days, there was no mention of any funds to cover that cost in your finalised distribution.

On another occasion which we kept you update on, we recall one of the beneficiaries Kathleen O’Keefe rushed us into signing a lease agreement on 27th August, 2014 without providing us an opportunity to read over same carefully or to consider the matter. Consequently we were forced to get legal advice in order to amend a number of the conditions including Michael Gavin’s 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 us and highlights the inadequate professional service provided by their 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 us to incur additional unnecessary expenses for legal advice to draft letters in response to the lease agreement Kathleen O’Keefe tricked me Michael Gavin into signing.

You have not provided the correct invoice for Catherine O’Conner. Her invoice states Total Amount Due €584.25 while Cash Account dated 18th July, 2014 “Fees paid to Catherine O’ Connor €6,857.25.

You did not seek our approval for seeking William Penrose B.L opinion. No Invoice for William Penrose B.L. or explanation of why his opinion was sought.

You did not seek our approval for John Dolan Auctioneer. No Invoice for John Dolan Auctioneer and breakdown of the fee he was paid was provided to us to date. As we recall the auctioneer John Dolan did advertise the auction extensively and I recall full and half page ads appeared in the local newspapers. We 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. To be honest a free mention in the local parish newsletter would have sufficed.

You did not seek our approval for Damien Hannigan & Company Limited Chartered Accountant, Mullingar. Why was he hired against our explicate wishes to oversee the accounts of Catherine O’Conner. He charged in my opinion an excessive fee of €8,751.45 which we consider to be extremely expensive and an unnecessary expense. Although he was hired to oversee the accounts his fee is in excess of Catherine O’Conner’s fee. John Glynn, Solicitor, Patrick Hogan & Co. did not put the Estate to the additional expense of hiring an additional Accountant so it begs the question why did you?

I fail to understand why you now require me to write you and confirm to you that we are not objecting to Patrick Hogan & Co. fees and direct you to pay same. I feel this has being dealt with adequately in previous correspondence as above and I fail to understand your logic as to why this is the only bill out of them all that you require us to approve.

It would appear that there is a personal axe to grind between your own good self and John Glynn, Solicitor, Patrick Hogan & Co. and you have no business drawing us into your personal battles between members of your own profession.

In our opinion it would be more befitting of you to write to each of the beneficiaries namely Anne Sanford, Wesley, Mass USA, Kathleen O’Keefe, Glanmire, Cork, Mike Harte,Wesley, Mass USA, Brenda Harte Waters Quincy, Mass USA, Michelle Harte Wesley, Mass USA, Philomena Duffy Mayo, Patrick Duffy, Clare, Catherine Duffy, Monksland, Athlone and Noel Duffy, Athlone, as I have done and claw back the monies owed to us.

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.

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.

We and those we have spoken to in relation to this matter FAIL to see the logic to your reluctance Mr. Robert Marren to see reason in this matter, how do you expect a person to labour for free for 9 years at their 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 Michael Gavin 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.

By denying me Michael Gavin a half share in the profits it means that Michael Gavin WAS WORKING FOR NOTHING over the years in question from October, 2005 through to 2013. This is totally unjust and totally unacceptable to us.

We will not accept the present situation which is totally unfair and leaves Michael Gavin without any compensation whatsoever for the time and trouble in looking after the animals on behalf of the estate and also deprives Michael Gavin of any profit he may have earned in the rearing and looking after his own animals.

The detailed breakdown of the net amount €xxx,xxx.11 due to Michael Gavin out of the Single Payment Entitlements representing his ½ share in the profits from farming the lands, was sent to you Mr. Marren, Solicitor, on the 5th of December, 2015 for your consideration. You will note that all that Michael Gavin is looking for is his fair share of the profits in the running of the farm and fair compensation for the work Michael Gavin did in looking after the animals.

It would appear that you Mr. Robert Marren delayed making the decision regarding 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 18thSeptember, 2014. Michael Gavin was lied to countless times and led to believe that he would be refunded at closing by some of the beneficiaries. Why did you Mr. Robert 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 refused to award him the net amount €xxx,xxx.11 due to Michael Gavin out of the Single Payment Entitlements representing my ½ share in the profits from farming the lands, which was also sent to you on the 5th of December, 2015 for your consideration. There is no good reason why you took advantage of Michael Gavin’s good nature and delayed his decision in this matter until the end.

You would have received a letter from Michael Gavin on 5th December, 2014 stating;

“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 you passed the book to us and demanded court proceedings to prevent the distribution in a short space of time over the Christmas period 2014-2015.

 

We believe that you Mr. Robert Marren should NOT have finalised the distribution without addressing our objections, and it appears you did same to avoid paying our €xx,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.

It would also appear that Mr. Henry of Tormeys Solicitors, Athlone facilitated you Mr. Marren by not phoning you or writing you immediately as requested by John Glynn Solicitor, (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 Marren’s threat to effect a distribution of the Estate.) nor did Mr. Henry of Tormeys Solicitors, Athlone inform us, so that we could engage another Solicitor to act on behalf of Michael Gavin and Eileen Linney.

We have difficulty understanding why Mr. Henry of Tormeys Solicitors, Athlone failed to respond to correspondence, including correspondence that was crucial and significant to us.

At a subsequent meeting with Mr. Henry after your closing he estimated that court proceedings to sue you 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 my age (83) into consideration.

It would appear you allowed confusion to arise in relation to the exact disbursement of funds and showed a complete disregard for the interests of the beneficiaries, whom you, Mr. Robert Marren a Solicitor, knew to be ELDERLY, and by your conduct is depriving two of the ELDERLY beneficiaries, of the enjoyment of their share in the estate. You have also forced Michael Gavin and Eileen Linney to incur additional unnecessary expenses in drafting documents and letters time and time again to prove their claim.

Yours Faithfully

Michael Gavin

The property auction aborted!

LandAuction-620x400

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

I was very disappointed at the way the administrator of the Estate Robert Marren, Solicitor, Mullingar, dealt with the auction of the property the auction aborted and the purchasers did not proceed with the purchase.

The entire lands were offered for sale by public auction on the 22nd of February 2013. The dwelling house and out houses and a small plot surrounding same was excluded from the sale by agreement, having regard to my right of residence therein. There were no bidders at the auction other than Ann Sanford and Myself. My sister Eileen and I pooled our resources and I bid up to €xx0,000 for the farm but ultimately stopped bidding at that figure as I could not afford to go any further and Ann Sanford topped it with a bid of €xx5,000 and was left with the farm at that price.

It would appear that the price which Messrs. Sanford & 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 of February, 2013. It would appear that Messrs. Sanford & O’Keeffe had some misgivings about the matter after the auction in that Mrs. O’Keeffe telephoned me in or about the beginning of May, 2013 advising me that the lands were to be put up for sale and I was to have first option to purchase same. However, this did not take place and instead, it would appear that Messrs. Sanford & O.Keeffe got the reaming of the next of kin, namely Theresa Harte, and the Duffy family to disclaim/release their shares in the deceased’s Estate to them, so that effectively, allowances were made for them to simply buy out my sister Eileen’s and my share in the property at the value of the property as determined at the Auction. Mr. Marren, Solicitor, Mullingar was reluctant to resolve the issue in isolation to the rest of the Estate although he had the monies in his possession on 27th of May, 2013.

On 5th December, 2014 I wrote to Mr. Robert Marren, Solicitor, Mullingar and told him that If a fair allowance was not made, on an agreed basis, I would not give him my consent to any distribution account prepared by him. I advised him that unless he could procure agreement between all the beneficiaries he would have to return to Court to get a Court Order directing how the estate could be distributed.

However Mr. Robert Marren passed the book to me and demanded court proceeding to prevent the distribution of the estate. He provided a very limited period, over the Christmas Period December/January 2014/2015 for me to obtain these proceedings and showed a complete disregard for my interests as a beneficiary. Mr. Robert Marren, Solicitor, knew I was elderly, in my mid eighties, and by his conduct was depriving me of the enjoyment of their share in the estate;

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.

Mr. Tony Henry of Tormeys Solicitors was given verbal instructions over the phone before Christmas and written instructions thereafter by our family solicitor.

However It would also appear that Mr. Tony Henry of Tormeys Solicitors, Athlone also facilitated Mr. Robert Marren by not phoning him or writing him immediately as requested by our family Solicitor, nor did he inform us, so that we could engage another Solicitor to act on our behalf to seek an extension and or prevent Mr. Marren’s closing with no regard for our objections. It would appear that Tony Henry of Tormeys Solicitors in addition to Mr. Robert Marron also does not possess the quality that could reasonably be expected of a solicitor.

Complaints of inadequate professional services, alleged over charging and misconduct were subsequently made to the Law Society of Ireland for Mr. Robert B Marren, Solicitor, Mullingar.

Complaints of inadequate professional services that are not of a quality that could reasonably be expected of a solicitor and misconduct by tending to bring the solicitors profession into disrepute were made to the Law Society of Ireland for Tony Henry, Tormeys Solicitor, Athlone.
