Sounds pretty mad behaviour for an Arthur Cox solicitor. Her response to the travelling circus remark was that "“My family is held in very high regard in the local community in Castlebar, Co Mayo."Sacked solicitor Ammi Burke’s unfair dismissal claim against law firm Arthur Cox has been thrown out by the Workplace Relations Commission (WRC) after her summons request for additional witnesses and repeated interruptions by her mother prevented the hearing from proceeding for more than five hours on Friday.
Ms Burke also demanded that senior counsel for the defence withdraw his remark that the Burke family was like a “travelling circus” – calling it “highly defamatory”.
So I googled Burke family, Castlebar... Plenty of results, eg: Gardai escort Burke family member out of Galway court after NUIG case ruling
Seems like there are 10 Burke siblings, all named after biblical characters and all notable for a) very high academic achievement and b) causing an absolute ruckus everywhere they go, falling out with everybody.Four members of one Mayo family have lost a religious discrimination case against NUI Galway, following a ruling at Loughrea Courthouse on Monday.
Siblings Enoch, Isaac, Kezia and Ammi Burke took a case against the college following their expulsion from participating in college societies in 2014, for what the University deemed to be numerous breaches of their code of conduct.
The siblings were all members of the Christian Union Society, which promoted scriptural Christian belief.
The ruling caused tension among members of the complainant's family, leading to the ejection of a member of the Burke family from the courtroom.
Mad stuff altogether!
