Property developer Sean Dunne has been made bankrupt in Ireland, and also filed for bankruptcy last year in the US with debts of €690 million. The state loans agency Nama has taken proceedings against Sean Dunne in the United States, and is objecting to his discharge from bankruptcy, in an attempt to stop him walking away from his pre-bankruptcy debts, which include 250 million euro owed to Nama. To date Dunne has had four meetings with creditors. The Irish Times Washington correspondent Simon Carswell was on the line.http://www.rte.ie/radio1/today-with-sean-o-rourke/programmes/2014/0303/507912-today-with-sean-o-rourke-monday-3-march-2014/?clipid=1430964
