Catriona Carey's Former Home

The repossessed home of former Ireland hockey player and Kilkenny woman Catriona Carey has hit the market.

The convicted fraudster lost her home in November after failing to keep up with mortgage repayments on the home for a period of ten years.

Last month Beat reported that Start Mortgages Designated Activity Company took possession of the property in Weir View Hill on Friday, November 4th.

It's understood the locks on the property were changed and access was cut off at the time.


According to the Sunday World, Catriona had already vacated the house a few weeks before that date, after an order for possession was granted to Start Mortgages in May of this year after she had built up arrears of more than €359,000.

The property, which can be viewed on, is described as a "substantial home spanning 2364 sq ft."

Located in the highly sought-after Weir View Estate in Kilkenny city, the property "is located on the Castlecomer Road and is within walking distance of Kilkenny City Centre. It's close to both primary and secondary schools, Kilkenny Golf Club, and Newpark Hotel and Leisure complex."

This former home isn't the only property Catriona lost this year. In March, a four-bedroom house owned by Carey was repossessed and sold on the property auction site BidX1 for €365,000.


Catriona Carey had been embroiled in controversy over an alleged mortgage scam, which was the subject of an RTÉ Investigates Programme that garnered national attention.

It's understood those who paid her thousands of euros for mortgage deals that never happened will have little chance of recovering their money due to the extent of her own debts.
