Galway Bay Press Room fm – A legal dispute between family members over running a business that owns hotels in Dublin and Galway has been resolved.
The action, in commercial court, involved members of the Flannery family over the operation of Foxfield Inns Designated Activity Company, which owns the Ashling Hotel in Dublin, the Imperial Hotel in Galway and several commercial properties and residential units that are rented.
When the action was launched in late 2020, the High Court learned that the company employed some 180 people.
A subsidiary of the company owns and operates the Eglington Hotel in Salthill, Galway.
This week, Judge Denis McDonald learned that the parties, following mediation, had settled the dispute.
Mary Flannery, College Road, Galway, who is the company secretary, had brought proceedings under section 212 of the Companies Act 2014 against members of her family and the company accountant.
She alleged that the respondents acted in an oppressive manner, infringing her rights in the management of Foxfield Inns.
The proceedings were against his brothers Frank Flannery, Ladyswell Park, Glasson, Athlone, Co Westmeath; Kevin Flannery and his wife, Sheelagh Flannery, The Green, College Road, Galway who have denied the allegations.
The action also targeted James Norton, the company’s auditor and accountant, who also dismissed the claims against him and Foxfield Inns DAC, both of Carysfort Avenue, Blackrock, Dublin.
In commercial court, Lyndon MacCann SC for Mary Flannery told the court that mediation in the case resulted in a settlement of the dispute.
