HALTED BY McKINNEY FAMILY: DONEGAL CREAMERIES BID TO SELL OATFIELDS SITE

first_imgDONEGAL Creameries bid to sell its Oatfield sweet factory for €5M has been halted for now at least – by a member of the McKinney family which founded it.Ruth McKinney has won the first round of a legal battle with Zopitar Limited, a subsidiary of Donegal Creameries.She has been using the yard at the factory as a right of way for more than 30 years. And she is fighting a legal battle to continue to do so.Ms McKinney, daughter of Oatfield co-found Ira McKinney, was told in a letter from Zopitar that they would “be holding her responsible for any loss or damage which it may suffer as a result.”But the pensioner took legal advice from Quinn Dillon & Co and they won the first round of their legal battle in the High Court in Dublin this week.Lawyers for the Donegal Creameries/Zopitar had a motion forcing Ms McKinney to supply a defence struck out by Mr Justice Murphy. The right of way could jeopardise the Creamery’s bid to sell the site to Lidl. HALTED BY McKINNEY FAMILY: DONEGAL CREAMERIES BID TO SELL OATFIELDS SITE was last modified: May 17th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img
