The treasurer and accountant of a State-funded charity providing education and support for teenagers is to meet with other members of the charity over allegations he misappropriated up to €161,000 of its funds.

The High Court was told yesterday that Greg Walsh, of Walsh and Co Accountants, Walkinstown, Dublin, had diverted funds for his own use from the Carline Learning Centre in Clondalkin.

The court heard that Mr Walsh was a director of the Carline Learning Centre since 2004 as well as being its treasurer and accountant.

Mr Justice Paul Gilligan was told that concerns were raised about his activities as a result of an outstanding liability of €72,500 to Revenue.

It was alleged that a number of cheques for substantial sums appeared to have been made out to Mr Walsh himself, his firm, his father and two other third parties with no association with Carline.

The judge granted permission to Carline to serve proceedings at short notice on Mr Walsh.

This morning lawyers for Carline said a number of undertakings had been given by Mr Walsh and matters had moved on.

The court was told Mr Walsh had agreed to meet with Carline representatives to address a number of matters and the case could be adjourned for seven days.

Lawyers for the Revenue Commissioners said they would supply the court with information in relation to tax liabilities which had been at the centre of the allegations in the case.

The case was adjourned until next Thursday.
