The Christian Brothers have expressed their “enormous disappointment” at the decision of the board of management of Clonkeen College in south Dublin to take legal action over the sale of its playing fields.

The board lodged legal proceedings in the High Court last month and has secured a lis pendens, or notice of the existence of a legal dispute, in relation to the disputed property.

The congregation said it was “enormously disappointed that the board of management has sought to take legal action against its most consistent and significant benefactor”.

It said that, as the matter was now before the courts, it would not be appropriate for it to comment further. It is understood the Brothers now want the case to proceed to hearing as soon as possible.
