Murdered Kerry man's family fears they may lose California home
“Now the kids won’t sleep in their own rooms. They are all scared. They all want to sleep in the same bed as me. They won’t walk from the bus stop and the little one keeps asking for her daddy,” adds Clem O’Sullivan with sadness.
O’Sullivan was in the middle of completing a green residential development and was just about ready to get a second one up and running before he died. The family had poured a lot of money into these projects, thus leaving them with large debts.
Clem O’Sullivan said the only solution she can come up with to save her home is to take on a business partner in the green resorts development projects, or to sell their 40-acre ranch and the holiday home.
“I’m hoping and praying that the development business will take off. In the midst of all of this I'm working night and day trying to market the two subdivisions. I’m hoping someone will come in and refinance, or come in on a joint venture with me on either of the subdivisions and with the ranch or the lighthouse home,” said Clem O’Sullivan.
“One of the green resorts is fully entitled as a green residential development. All we have left to do is turn in the final engineering drawings into the county. It’s on 132 acres with 98 single family lots.”
The O’Sullivan ranch has a small winery. The house has a guest quarters detached. There are two barns and eight stalls. There is also an area mapped out for a riding arena.
Clem O’Sullivan said she is fortunate to have good in-laws with welcoming hearts.
“John’s family and some of the people on Valentia Island said I am welcome to move there. They are so great, and it might be something that we may have to consider,” she said.
O' Sullivan's remains were brought home to Valentia Island for burial following his death. Clem O’Sullivan accompanied his body, but she didn’t have enough money to bring the children.
“I hope someday soon to bring the children away from all of this here and go to Kerry to be with John’s family. I’d really love to go for Christmas, but that won’t be possible the way things are financially at the moment,” said Clem.
