Cork Circuit Court
RTE journalist Brian O’Connell attended Cork Circuit Court yesterday where there were more than 100 home repossession cases listed. He spoke with some of the people who were going before the court for the Today With Seán O’Rourke show this morning.
After hearing people tell their personal stories, Mr O’Rourke asked if anyone had been evicted during yesterday’s proceedings.
Seán O’Rourke: “As a matter of interest, were there cases where people were evicted from their homes or where their homes were repossessed against their will?”
Brian O’Connell: “Not yesterday, Seán. I suppose it was the first day back so people were telling me, legal people I spoke to said, it was unlikely any order would have been made yesterday. That they’d put it back to December. They’re expecting November, December to start seeing those cases, sometimes they’re grouped together.”
Early election so.
