    Default Sligo businessman says he had ‘no choice’ but to file for bankruptcy

    Sligo businessman and former Renua candidate at the last GE says he had ‘no choice’ but to file for bankruptcy.

    https://www.oceanfm.ie/2017/11/09/sl...or-bankruptcy/

    Finbarr Filan, who is a prominent Sligo businessman and proactive in many commercial regeneration incentives in Sligo appears to have followed his brother Shane by filing for bankruptcy. An interesting read in the Sligo Weekender where he claims the debt burden is an ever increasing problem in this state.

    When you proclaim the virtues of a free market neo liberal capitalist system and then get caught up in its whirlwind exhaust fumes in the form of a glorified " pass the parcel " ponzi scheme that the Irish property market was and is, you really should take your beating and call it as it is.

    These boys make me sick... Hiding away their fortune abroad, in various family members
    bank accounts, and ever so slyly declaring 'bankruptcy'. I mean FFS..
    Don't believe a word of it...
    These pair are just laughing at the rest of us..
    Those of us that 'actual taxpayers'. Up in the morning at 6, for the daily grind & commute, and to read this is actually nauseating....
    What's that saying again ? ''Tax is only for the small fellas''

    Is this recent debt or left-overs from the boom ?

    like to bring back the debtors prison would you ?

    he had a business venture that failed , he chose the best bankruptcy route available to him and is now out of bankruptcy

    he tried , he failed , people like you never try or just live off others handouts
