Trump sends lawyers to to Irish court to have 14k ruling against him thrown out.

Get the popcorn for this one....


Donald Trump sent lawyers to a tiny West of Ireland courthouse on Tuesday in a bid to overturn a €14,000 court judgement against him.

The billionaire US President went head-to-head with civil engineer John V Lennon, who racked up the bill objecting to Trump’s plan for a 200,000-tonne rock barrier at his Co Clare golf resort.

He sent the invoice to the President and when it went unpaid secured a court judgement in June forcing the property magnate to cough up.


But lawyers for the world’s most powerful man asked a judge in Kilrush district court in Clare to set the €14,095 bill aside.

Mr Lennon, from Cork, said he had the court order with him yesterday.

He had previously stated the €14,095 sum arose from work he put into lodging an objection against plans for a “rock wall” at the President’s famous Doonbeg golf course.

Trump later withdrew the barrier plan in favour of a scaled down planning application which is currently before Clare County Council.

Mr Lennon claims the US President wasted his time as he lodged a written six-page objection to the large scale plan.

When the case was called yesterday, barrister Pat Whyms, appearing on behalf of the billionaire, told the judge: “It is my application to set aside judgement.”

He said his application “is dealt with on submissions but there are complex issues and it could take up to 30 minutes”.

Mr Lennon represented himself in court and told Judge Durcan: “An order was made for me to collect €14,095 and €725 costs against Donald J Trump.”

SNIP

The case was adjourned until December 12 for hearing in Ennis.

Mr Lennon previously clashed with the Trump firm through his involvement in a planned wind-farm at Doonbeg that was shot down by planning appeals chiefs An Bord Pleanala in 2015.
