Filan worked in shop after bankruptcy
WESTLIFE star Shane Filan’s brother Finbarr said he had to go back to work in a Centra after he went bankrupt to the tune of €15million.
The pair were involved in several construction and development projects at the height of the boom.
But all that changed when the recession hit.
Finbarr told Today with Sean O’rourke on RTE Radio 1 he was forced to declare bankruptcy in the UK, after selling his home in Sligo.
He said: “I went home and we just had to start re-evaluating.
“You start at the bottom again and start building.
“You have to have faith in yourself. When you’ve been through that process, you lose all faith.”
