The wife of a judge has brought a farmer to court, in a dispute over land trespassing. Read more below.

A Clare farmer appeared in court over a land trespassing dispute, as reported in the Limerick Leader.

The farmer was brought to court by the wife of a circuit court judge, Felicity O’Kelly, who claims the farmer was trespassing on what she says is her property. She brought the case against farmer John Brew, who hails from near Kilkee, Co. Clare.

Mrs O’Kelly claimed in the High Court on Thursday, June 7th, that the farmer is disputing the ownership of the land, at the site of a former creamery at Termon West, Kilkee. She also noted that he had left cattle on the land in question, which had wandered onto the road.

Mr O’Kelly was seeking an injunction against the farmer, among other orders, which would restrain him from entering or interfering with the property in any way. She also sought for the farmer to remove fencing and locks put on the gates of her land, as well as the removal of any animals.

The courts were told by Counsel for Mrs O’Kelly that she had purchased the land many years ago and it now is in her name only. The court was also told that Mrs O’Kelly and her team made many efforts to sort out the dispute, though things escalated when a lock was placed on the gates by Mr. Brew. Mrs O’Kelly said she had no option but to take the farmer to court.

Justice Tony O’Connor granted Mrs O’Kelly permission on an ex parte basis, to serve short notice of the proceedings on the farmer, Mr Brew. He adjourned the matter to a later date in June and said it would have to be heard by the High Court.

    If the wife of the judge takes someone to court, let us believe that she will win. Clearly, the property was in joint names before, and has been put in her sole name to fight the case. The name Felicity O'Kelly gives me an alarm bell for some reason. I think I know someone who knows her indirectly and I do not have good vibes about this person. Mr Brew, you are in for a fight until the death !
