Owner of disappeared Tory Island house to get paid

The High Court in Dublin

The Four Courts, Dublin

The Supreme Court has dismissed an appeal by the company that formerly owned Tory Island’s Hotel against a High Court ruling that it was responsible for demolishing a house on the island belonging to film-maker Neville Presho.

Three judges ruled the company could not appeal the decision as it has been dissolved. They ruled that Presho be immediately paid €46,000 in damages, lodged in court.

The court will consider in January whether to allow an appeal from Patrick Doohan, former owner of the company, to go ahead.
