Here is yet another example (of many) of how a golden circle of establishment figures are beneficiaries of extreme conflicts of interest in the financial dealings of this state, in their quest to buoy up the financial institutions, and all who live off that process, to the detriment of the people of this country.

This time it involves IBRC, formerly Anglo. It’s amazing what a small amount of digging brings to the surface and surprising that more of this does not find its way into the mainstream, or become the subject of investigations

Solicitor, and good friend to ex Taoiseach Brian Cowen, Aidan Eames was playing a rather dangerous game with IBRC mortgage holders. Mr Eames on one hand just happened to be a director of the IBRC while on the other hand was evicting mortgage holders and business people from their respective homes and businesses.

Presently,Mr Eames also represents one of the most hated and second most villified companies after Irish Water, GMC Sierra.

It appears that no one in the corridors of Blackhall Place, Dail Eireann or The Four Courts seemed to have noticed that Mr Eames was acting in a manner that was rather inappropriate given his position with IBRC. Aidan Eames was taking part in what was an obvious conflict of interest by suing mortgage holders for the very bank that he was a director of!

I would think that anyone who has or had a mortgage with IBRC should maybe take new legal advice and consider start suing both IBRC and Mr Eames personally where he or his firm (Eames Solicitors) were involved in proceedings against any individual, couple or business owner.

TIP: They dislike it when their “Solicitors Mutual Defence Fund” is advised of a potential action by a plaintiff!

Now you know the Achilles heel… But go North for the advice! Use a Northern solicitor with dual accreditation in both jurisdictions to practice because you won’t find a Southern solicitor who will touch the case against one of their own.10670263_800605716642698_7224476037158020813_n

The last 7 years has seen countless similar scenarios play out and not one of these attracts investigation by Gardai, the Dáil, the law society, or the  public standards in office. Anyone would think this lack of accountability indicated they are protecting eachother?

Would you like full accountability in politics, banking, civil service, law and policing? Well, when you can create your own legislation through referendum in a direct democracy system you can insist on it. Also if you want to elect your own judges, police commissioners and top civil servants who would serve the people’s interests instead of the clique’s then you could also make that a reality.

    Where is the conflict of interest? If any thing he is going above his duty by trying to make as much money for the Company he is director of.

      What an infantile comment there Dave. He is clearly acting outside of his remit as a solicitor by acting for both parties for a financial consideration. It is illegal but because of who he is that makes it OK for him to do that? I’m a solicitor and would be struck off the roll if I pulled that stunt.

      Not all solicitors agree with what is going on and what Mr Eames is doing is illegal according to the Law Society.

      Well done to the author of the article in the first place as he or she put two and two together where no one else could and well done to your website for highlighting the issue.

    “. Aidan Eames is taking part in what is an obvious conflict of interest by suing mortgage holders for the very bank that he is a director of” So he works for the Bank as a director and is sueing on behalf of the bank as its Solicitor. So he is acting for the bank in both cases. So who is the other party and how is there a conflict of interest. I just did a search of the roll of solicitors and your name is not there how strange? According to the Solicitor Mutual Defence fund its is not advicsed that a solicitor be also a Director, But there is nothing illegal about it.

    As IBRC is now in liquidation, the powers and duties of directors cease and the liquidators assume the authority and powers of the board. This happened in 2013 so Mr Eames has no powers or duties to IBRC since 2013 so there can not be a Conflict of interest. I think some one should do their homework before writing these stories.

    It’s just old fashioned cronyism then-no crime there.
