A court case where Minister for Health James Reilly and his business partners were sued over an alleged unpaid debt has settled.

The case centred on a planned private medical centre.

Mr Reilly was jointly sued, along with his business partners, by a firm of architects.

The firm alleged that Mr Reilly and his business partners allegedly owed €100,000 for work on the proposed Airside Clinic in Swords, Co Dublin.

PM Group was hired in 2007 to draw up plans for the multi-million euro, four-storey private medical centre.

The work never started despite planning permission being granted. 

Mr Reilly and the other defendants denied the claims.

When the case was called before Mr Justice Paul Gilligan David Dodd, for PM Group, told the judge it was before the court via an application to enter final judgment.

However, the case had settled and could be adjourned for mention until 5 October to facilitate the making of a final payment, Mr Dodd said.

The settlement was confidential and the terms will be handed into court later, counsel added.
