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.

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.

Invoice for William Penrose B.L. or explanation of why his opinion was sought.

Invoice for John Dolan Auctioneer and breakdown of the handsome fee he was paid.

Answer to “has John Glynn, Hogan & Co. Ballinasloe been paid to date, and if not why not”?

Answer to “has John Glynn, Hogan & Co. Ballinasloe been paid to date, and if not why not”?

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. Your client 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 his attention to same which apparently he had 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.??

Mr. Marren your client did not seek our approval for T & N McLynn, Solicitors bill nor did he request if we objected to same after they represented the other side beneficiaries who put the Estate of our late brother Patrick Gavin to enormous legal expense with their High Court Special Summons where they sought to sell the roof over Michael Gavin’s 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 your client Mr.Marren update on, we recall one of the beneficiaries #KathleenOKeefe 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.

Your client Mr. Marren has yet to 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.

Your client Mr. Robert B. Marren did not seek our approval for seeking #WilliamPenrose B.L opinionNo Invoice for William Penrose B.L. or explanation of why his opinion was sought.

Your client did not seek our approval for #JohnDolanAuctioneerNo 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.

Your client 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 your client Mr Robert B. Marren?

It would appear that there is a personal axe to grind between your client Robert Marren and John Glynn, Solicitor, Patrick Hogan & Co. and your client had no business drawing us into his own personal battles between members of his own profession.

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.

Its time to put an end to Solicitor Financial Elder Abuse in this country!

Kathleen o Keefe and Anne Sanford Instigators of Financial Elder Abuse

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

t&n+front (1)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

TonyMcLynn2

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

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

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

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

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

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

deptofag

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

I was lied to and led to believe that I would be refunded at closing by some of the beneficiaries for my time and trouble in looking after the animals. I FAIL to see the logic to their reluctance to see reason in this matter, how do they namely Robert Marren, Solicitor and Administrator for the estate of my late brother Patrick Gavin, T & N McLynn, Solicitors, Athlone, Tony Henry, Tormeys Solicitors, Athlone, and 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; 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.
