Land League crusader Jerry racked up 16m of own debts JERRY Beades of the New Land League organisation built up bank debts of almost 16m during his career as a developer, but he says he is in the process of appealing all of it.
Developer Mr Beades (56), who has been helping bankrupt solicitor Brian O'Donnell in his bid to stop Bank of Ireland making him vacate his former Killiney home, has had his own share of legal battles in recent years. The former Fianna Fail National Executive member, who was part of former Taoiseach Bertie Ahern's "Drumcondra Mafia", ran up a string of debts with four financial institutions during the Celtic Tiger years.

"I will win," he insisted when questioned about his planned appeals. He said his own success in fending off a legal attempt to make him bankrupt led to his involvement and friendship with embattled solicitor Brian O'Donnell. He said Mr O'Donnell has accepted "a lot of defence information" from the New Land League organisation as he battles to prevent efforts by Bank of Ireland to make him vacate the Gorse Hill mansion in Killiney. The New Land League has louis vuitton alma vernis pm been in contact with 5,000 to 7,000 people around Ireland who louis vuitton neverfull epi have had difficulties with banks including doctors, dentists, farmers, builders and others, Mr Beades said. The league is a support group that pools information and operates "a buddy system" for those in legal battles with the banks, he said. Mr Beades became well known for his legal crusade against financial institutions where he represented himself in court and enjoyed some victories in the midst of banks securing large cash judgments against him. He fought a lengthy legal battle with ACC Bank over 6.27m of loans it extended to him and a company, Fairlee Properties, where he was a director. In 2009 a High Court judge ruled that the bank was liable for more than 4.76m damages to Mr Beades due to losses suffered by him due to the bank's negligence after it lost title deeds to some of his properties. Mr Beade's debt to the bank was reduced to 1.5m as a result, but there were further legal proceedings as he failed to pay it. In May 2012 he successfully batted the bankruptcy petition taken against him by ACC after a judge accepted his application that paperwork accompanying the bank's claim was faulty. In July 2012, Bank of Scotland secured judgment orders for 9.6m against Mr Beades in relation to loans to a plan to build apartments at Richmond Avenue, north Dublin. Four loans extended between 2005 and 2008 were to be repaid with the proceeds of the sale of the apartments. "I would have finished the apartments in Richmond Avenue if do all louis vuitton bags have d rings the bank had given me another 2m that I needed to complete louis vuitton shoes fit the job. The apartments could then have been sold," he claimed last night.

The following year the High Court found that Ulster Bank was entitled to summary judgment for 3.5m against Mr Beades. Then in 2014 he lost a claim that IIB Bank was not entitled to repossess two commercial properties from him after he defaulted on a 1.15m mortgage. Last night Mr Beades made a number of highly critical statements about the legal profession, members of the judiciary and the courts system. He declined to speak about other leaders of the New Land League, saying he was its spokesman and "I do what I'm told".
"When it comes to protests and evictions, I'm centre stage," he said defiantly. The Dubliner, who is married with three college going children, spends a considerable amount of time travelling around Ireland addressing New Land League public meetings. "I organised a bus recently so we could travel to protest outside the Labour Party conference in Kerry," he said.
