Christina Gallagher is selling her house at 2 Abington, Swords Road, Malahide, North County Dublin

Abingdon CG1Abington in 2012

Note the cover for the gates so no one can look in:

Christina Gallagher having waited for the upturn in the economy and added further houses to her portfolio is about to sell a house that no one knows who the owner is? Is it the former supporter John Rooney from Steubenville, Ohio in the USA? There had been a House of Prayer there. Is it in the name of of the House of Prayer, Achill? Or is in the name of Jim Lynn from Greystones? Well it started out under Conville Enterprises in 2003, then when it was purchased for Christina in 2006 it was in the name of John Rooney-Folio number 157911 F. Now here’s the problem, John who was involved with the House of Prayer in Ohio has now departed the scene. Question is how did the HofP manage to get John to sign over the title to James Lynn on March 14, 2014?

Considering he was totally disillusioned with Christina how did they manage that? As they say there are more questions than answers. It also explains the role of Jim Lynn and his abusive attempts to divert this blog.He is in charge of a serious amount of cash.

Here is the house now for sale: Generally it is assumed it will go for around €2.4-7 million

M1Now this property was bought to help Christina hide from herself in the five bedrooms. She was a devil for changing things. Putting in new sculptures and going up to Wilson’s in Hillsborough for new salvage.
