Woman who denies running club where naked man on crucifix was whipped to appeal decision striking out bid to join legal proceedings
A Dublin businesswoman, who denies she ran a nightclub where a naked man tied to a crucifix had his bare bum whipped, is to appeal a decision of Dublin County Registrar Rita Considine striking out her bid to join a former manager to legal proceedings against her. She claimed in a sworn affidavit that if anyone was responsible for such activities it was her former manager McQuaid and Baggot Street Bars. Ms Considine struck out Conway’s application on Friday last at the request of barrister Martin Canny, counsel for Grant, who said Conway was not present or legally represented in the County Registrar’s court in order to make her attachment application. She then moved on to motions published at timed intervals on her Tuesday list in order to keep down the number of people in court at any given time. Afterwards Mr Walker said outside court that the County Registrar’s decision to initially strike out Ms Conway’s application was being appealed.
