Shocking Corruption Exposed by 83 Yr Elderly Roscommon Farmer. Expose the Injustice & ElderAbuse, Share Wide and Far!

My story is about the injustice and Elder Abuse that occurred in the matter of the Estate of my late brother Patrick Gavin at the hands of the beneficiaries and the Solicitors.

Here are some of the points with links to more details

A special High Court summons was issued to me in an attempt to sell the roof over my head, without regard to the fact that my father's will gave me the right to live in the house for the rest of my days. they argued that they wanted to include the house with the sale of the lands.

The Administrator for the estate Mr. Robert Marren, Solicitor, Mullingar,refused to pay me the Grant monies paid down from the department of Agriculture and or compensation for looking after the Estate Animals for 9 years which means I was working for nothing for 9 years

The monies awarded to my sister Eileen and I were not correct. The Administrator for the estate Mr. Robert Marren, Solicitor, Mullingar, held onto our monies for nearly 2 years and refused to give them to us in isolation to closing on the Estate. Finally when we did receive them they were €12,500 short each of what we were due with no satisfactory explanation provided to date.

Mr. Tony Henry Tormeys Solicitors Athlone did not undertake the instructions given to him for us through our family Solicitor namely to ring and or write Mr. Marren Solicitor immediately, to prevent him closing in isolation to my objections.

The matter has been reported to the Law Society of Ireland with no fault found to date.

Many more do not want to know or support Denial of Service

We are current in seeking to get grounding affidavits prepared to report the matter to the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal. However this is proving difficult as it would appear that the Solicitors are reluctant to challenge each other, and we are advise to go outside of the midlands to get Legal advice.

In an effort to to highlight the injustice and elder Abuse in this matter a blog was created with substantial details.

Hundreds of posters have being place in the Athlone, Mullingar area in addition to community noticeboard throughout the world

Despite the Irish medias reluctance to run classified word ads and or cover the Elder Abuse story, Ads are running in the Irish Echo Newspapers in USA

We are actively seeking a journalist/witter to cover the story, if you know of anyone

We are actively requesting people to email,, and others and express your dissatisfaction at what appears to have occurred in this matter.

We feel that this type of thing occurs all too often behind closed doors, and those responsible, would be less likely to offend known the risk of been exposed in the public domain, so with that said we invite you the reader to share this matter wide and far

“Justice will not be served until those who are unaffected are as outraged as those who are.”

There are several groups in the US against Lawyers who control the Estates of elderly people and cut off family members from even visiting their own parents in hospitals or care homes - the above link is about Peter Falk who this happened to (Colombu) - his daughter got the Law changed - 

God Bless you - and what courage you have now to go public...

Michael I have just read the part on your blog about you and your sister received your cheque inheritance in the post - I hope you or whoever is helping you with the WWW - that you know - an Executor of a will cannot give out the inheritance in cash to anyone unless he has received their PPS number - were you or your sister asked for your PPS numbers...this is vital for you to know...

Thank You For the comments Teri

He had the pps numbers alright

However he did not have agreement between the beneficiaries and based on this he was advised to take the matter back to court to have a Judge decide how the Estate should be distributed. Mr Marren passed the book back and threaten that he intended to close unless court proceeding were issued to prevent him. Mr. Tony Henry, Tormeys Solicitor did not undertake his instructions to contact Marren prior to the closing.

Michael - you have 249 views already - all many of us can do is keep tweeting and sharing on facebook for you - God Bless you and I felt the pain inside you when you said "I worked from 14 years to help rear them all" - that statement tells a story within a story - Well done to you and the dear people around you who are supporting you like this "The Quiet Man now speaks out with a Roar and a Thunder that will leave no Stone Unturned"
