- High Court has appointed liquidator to two companies
- Operator of Dublin restaurant Dobbins
- Survival scheme for Beckett’s hotel operators
The High Court has appointed a liquidator to two companies operating iconic Dublin restaurant Dobbins.
It was put into examinership in June after the companies operating it had problems with debt and loss of business contracts, at the time providing employment to sixty people. Kieran Wallace, the examiner, attempted to search for an investor for Dobbins but had failed. The property is to be surrendered to the bank.
Two other companies operating Beckett’s Hotel in Leixlip, Co. Kildare are going before the court later this week. Beckett’s was home of the mother of writer Samuel Beckett.
The restaurant’s webpage now bears only the message: “Dobbins Restaurant has been placed into liquidation and has ceased trading. We would like to thank our many loyal customers for their support for the last forty years.“
