He is serving 7 years for his attacks on the Killybegs woman. In a statement Killybegs solicitor Grattan Butler from the firm D.P. Barry & Company, said he wanted the public to know that his client would never actually get the money awarded to her by the Dublin High Court jury.“I am conscious that it is very important to include in any article that while Ms. Breslin is delighted with today’s assessment by the jury it will be a matter for her us as her legal advisors to try and realise assets on her behalf from the very limited assets of Mr. Gillespie which will be an extremely difficult task,” said Mr Butler.“This does not in any way detract from the significance of the award that was handed down by the jury representing the general, aggravated and exemplary damages caused by Mr. Gillespie to Ms. Breslin for the terrible years of rape and abuse and subsequent aggravating behaviour since those years of rape and abuse.“Ms. Breslin, is a young lady with three young children who leads a very modest life and it is of the upmost importance that she does not incur any further unnecessary stress with any misrepresentation of the award.”It’s understood Gillespie, from Carrrickmagrath, Ballbofey doesn’t have any known assets.A jury at the High Court awarded the mother of three €2.8m to include aggravated and exemplary damages.Ms Breslin’s lawyers told the court that between 1993-1997, Gillespie deliberately and knowingly perpetrated acts of sexual assault and sexual abuse on her in his home and also once in her grandmother’s house at Athayvooge, Killybegs and in forest areas in the county.DONEGAL ABUSE VICTIM AWARDED €2.8M WON’T GET PAYMENT, SAYS HER LAWYER was last modified: November 16th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:BallybofeydonegalDONEGAL ABUSE VICTIM AWARDED €2.8M WON’T GET PAYMENTKillybegsMARCELLA BRESLINPATRICK GILLESPIESAYS HER LAWYERlast_img
