Supreme Court dismisses appeal from High Court, and affirms summary judgment in the sum of €563,242 arising from bank borrowings, on the grounds that the debtors had failed to establish a defence, and had sought to rely on irrelevant material in submissions.

McKechnie J (nem diss): Judgment granted to bank in 2014 - debt in 2012 of €564K - summary summons - appeal from grant of judgment - High Court proceedings - lack of defence - whether mis-spelling of name on proceedings gave rise to a defence - allegation raised on appeal that monies had been advances to company rather than borrower in person - irrelevant material included in submission.
