The Court of Appeals has recently dismissed the bankruptcy appeals of Alan Hynes, a well-known businessman, and his estranged wife Noreen. This decision comes after the High Court adjudicated the couple bankrupt in October 2020.

Hynes has also faced complaints from investors who lost over €18 million and was excluded from the Institute of Chartered Accountants in 2015 by the Chartered Accountants Regulatory Board.

The couple has been involved in extensive legal actions, including a petition by John and Bridget Atkinson seeking a sum of over €200,000 plus interest against them. Liquidator Myles Kirby called Hynes the most dishonest director he had encountered.

This article aims to provide an objective and impartial overview of the bankruptcy appeals dismissal and the legal actions taken against Alan Hynes and his estranged wife.

Legal Issues and Actions

Mr Hynes has been embroiled in various legal actions throughout his career, with complaints from several investors who lost over €18 million.

In 2015, the Chartered Accountants Regulatory Board excluded Mr Hynes from the Institute of Chartered Accountants following these complaints.

Liquidator Myles Kirby also called Mr Hynes the most dishonest director he had encountered, and his recent bankruptcy adjudication only adds to the ongoing legal issues surrounding his business practices.

Despite attempts to challenge the bankruptcy adjudication, Mr Hynes and his estranged wife were unsuccessful in their appeals.

The Court of Appeals refused to pause the adjudications, and Ms Justice Teresa Pilkington dismissed Ms Hynes’ application for the bankruptcy to be quashed or paused.

The dismissal of the appeals highlights the extent of the legal troubles Mr Hynes has faced and the ongoing impact they have on his business dealings.

Judgments and Complaints

The Chartered Accountants Regulatory Board took action against Mr Hynes and firms under his direction due to complaints from investors who suffered losses exceeding €18 million. This action led to Mr Hynes’ exclusion from the Institute of Chartered Accountants in 2015.

Additionally, Mr Hynes and firms he directed have been involved in extensive legal actions, with liquidator Myles Kirby calling Mr Hynes the most dishonest director he had encountered.

These judgments and complaints against Mr Hynes demonstrate a pattern of unethical and fraudulent behavior in his business dealings. The exclusion from the Institute of Chartered Accountants and the legal actions taken against him suggest that Mr Hynes may have engaged in practices that were harmful to investors and his business partners.

The dismissal of his bankruptcy appeals further indicates that the courts have found him to be responsible for his financial troubles.

Bankruptcy Adjudications

The recent adjudications in court regarding the bankruptcy of Alan Hynes and his estranged wife highlight the serious financial issues they faced. The court refused to pause the bankruptcy adjudications, and Ms Justice Teresa Pilkington dismissed Ms Hynes’ application for the bankruptcy to be quashed or paused.

Mr Hynes did not appear at the hearing, and his appeal was dismissed earlier in an oral ruling. The Atkinsons sought the 200,000 sum plus interest of over €90,000 against Mr and Ms Hynes.

The court found that Mr and Ms Atkinson satisfied the criteria under the 1988 Bankruptcy Act. The outcome of this case reveals the severe consequences that can arise from financial mismanagement and dishonest practices in business.
