I Want Damages for. TRESPASS NUISANCE ASSAULT BATTERY; PAT KENNY LAND BATTLE: DAY 2 Late Late Host Counter Claim


RTE star Pat Kenny is seeking damages for trespass, nuisance, assault and battery over his dispute with a neighbour, a court heard yesterday.

Details of Mr Kenny's counterclaim emerged on the second day of the High Court action by his neighbour Gerard Charlton to establish ownership of a strip of land, known as Gorse Hill, beside their homes in Dalkey.

He also claims that over the years Mr Kenny asked him to sell the 0.2 acre land to him.

He will also claim damages for interference with his constitutional property rights and right to privacy.

But the Kennys claim they have acquired the land by adverse possession or squatters' rights.

He said when Mr Kenny bought his house, The Anchorage, in 1988, he knew there was no question of the title to Gorse Hill being assigned to him. …
