DEVELOPER Sean Dunne has quit Ireland and is living in an exclusive private community in Greenwich, Connecticut, which is manned 24 hours a day by security personnel to protect its privileged residents.

The Irish Independent has learnt that Mr Dunne left the country to pursue business interests in New York and has since become the newest resident in Belle Haven, a secure residential compound that is home to hedge fund billionaire Paul Tudor Jones II and singer Diana Ross.

The former heads of IBM, Tom Watson and Louis Gerstner, the former CEO of Xerox, Peter McCollough and the former chairman of Goldman Sachs, John Weinberg, also live in the estate.

I think it's about time they buried old Tom Watson then. seeing as he died in that estate in 1993.

Dunner is well used to dealing with Zomibie banks so he should have no problems dealing with Zombie neighbours :P

I spoke to a bankrupt NAMA bound developer last year and asked him if he was planning on emigrating "Oh no I'm going to hang around, I don't want to miss out on the upswing" it took a huge effort not to laugh in his face.

But it seems the penny has dropped for the Dunner and a few more that any upswing is a long way away and there will be very little money to be made in Ireland in the medium term with the exception of those few who are sitting on pots of cash and profit from others misfortune.

No doubt he will be careful in structuring his business dealings to keep any profits out of the reach of his creditors here.

"and the average home sells for €1.5 million"...... Cheeese, we used to get that for a 3 bed semi in Swords. It's a long way from €65 million in Shrewsbury Road.

How is cheese made backwards? EDAM
