The Irish Times reported that US investment bank Goldman Sachs would today move to take possession of the Aberdeen Lodge Hotel in Ballsbridge, Dublin 4.

Further to this…

Sam Boal, of Rollingnews, writes:

Sharon Delaney and John Boland from Paul McCann’s office arrived [at the hotel] at 11am this morning asking the occupants Ann Keane and Patrick Halpin if they intend to hand over the property, before leaving shortly after.

Resident Patrick explained this morning: “We are not in a position, we have no where to go, we have given our last shilling every month to make this morgage, this is a little B&B business, we have a family, we have to keep going and we have done nothing wrong and we are prepared to go to the courts and expalin we have done nothing wrong.”

US investment bank Goldman Sachs are looking to take possession of the hotel on the back of almost €26million in boom-era borrowings.
