The Court of Appeal is to hear an application by Brian O'Donnell at 10am in the latest twist in the Gorse Hill case.

In the Court of Appeal, Judge Sean Ryan told solicitor Mr O'Donnell, who was representing himself in a case where he said there had been "some publicity", that it would be "unreal to pretend we hadn't any idea about what is going on, even if we are judges".

Mr O'Donnell said he had a stay until 5pm on an order to vacate the property in Killiney, south Dublin, following an earlier trespass injunction in the High Court and was seeking to appeal that.

He said some of the paper work and the formal order was not available.

Judge Ryan said he would allow until this morning for this to become available and would hear Mr O'Donnell then.  

He said Mr O'Donnell would have to alert the other parties in the case by phone and email before that this short-notice hearing would take place.

Mr O'Donnell asked in the meantime "are we just to continue packing up?". Judge Ryan reiterated he would be making no announcements on what had already been decided in court.

The High Court earlier granted a trespass injunction to Bank of Ireland for the property.

Judge Brian McGovern had told solicitor Mr O'Donnell that he and his wife Mary Patricia must vacate the multi-million euro house.

The house is at the centre of a row over €71m in debts owed to Bank of Ireland and amassed through property investment.

Speaking directly to Mr O'Donnell, the judge said he and his wife are "trespassers on the property" and  must "immediately vacate Gorse Hill" .

Mr O'Donnell responded saying they would appeal and sought a stay on the order of six months.

Judge McGovern said he would allow a stay until 5pm tomorrow, saying he would allow Mr O'Donnell and wife time to remove their possessions.

He added as they resided in the UK, he was not sure what possessions they may have left in the house.

In his full judgment on the trespass injunction application by Bank Of Ireland, Mr Justice McGovern granted the bank and its receivers an interlocutory injunction against Mr and Mrs O'Donnell.

He said they were not the owners of the property, and were living in the UK. 

He said they had returned to Gorse Hill to "frustrate efforts by the plaintiffs to take possession of the property".

"The defendants are prima facie, trespassing on the property at Gorse Hill."

Mr O'Donnell appeared in court to represent himself as part of a long running legal row to try and hold onto the mansion on Killiney Hill.

Members of the self-styled New Land League were also present.

At bankruptcy hearings in the UK, he had told a court there he resided in Britain and it was his main centre of interest.

Counsel for the bank, Cian Ferriter, told the court the receiver Tom Kavanagh was keen to have a peaceful and calm handover of the property and would meet Mr O'Donnell to arrange this.

He asked the court to make it clear to Mr O'Donnell he was not entitled to reside there, and that Jerry Beades and the land league, nor anyone else was entitled to go onto the property.

Outside the court, Mr O'Donnell's representatives indicated he would seek to go immediately to the Supreme Court to seek a stay on the order.

A number of other cases surrounding Gorse Hill are continuing.
