A Longford man has begun civil legal proceedings against KBC Bank, the Garda Commissioner and a number of other parties following an eviction at a property in Strokestown almost two years ago.

The Irish Independent is reporting that Kevin Taylor, of Ardnacassa Lawns, Longford, is taking a personal injuries action after events at an eviction in December 2018 and is seeking damages for alleged physical and psychological injuries.

The legal action was lodged with the High Court on Monday.

Mr Taylor, who is a retired Garda, and two other men, Anthony McGann and Colm Granahan, are currently in jail in Mountjoy Prison after refusing to purge their contempt of court by not agreeing to give the undertaking to stay away from a property in Falsk, Strokestown.

The matter was adjourned until January but Judge Leonie Reynolds explained that the men could come before the court at any time to purge their contempt.

Last week the property was repossessed by agents acting on behalf of KBC Bank and steel shutters were erected on the house's windows and doors.
