Circulated earlier today:
STATEMENT FROM DOUGLAS WALLACE ARCHITECTS

Douglas Wallace Architects today 7th May 2009 confirms that Mr Ken Fennell of Kavanagh Fennell has been appointed liquidator of the firm. This follows a period in examinership during which the firm were unable to establish an appropriate scheme of arrangement to meet its obligations.

This sad and regrettable decision is the unfortunate consequence of the firm’s exposure to the wider economic downturn in Ireland and the UK. While the firm is wholly concerned with meeting its business obligations to all parties, it is today very conscious of the impact this will have on its loyal staff who are responsible for the firm’s proudest days over the years and who have been hugely supportive over recent months. Douglas Wallace would also like to acknowledge and thank the support of its clients at this difficult time.
