Two farmers claimed before the High Court that they have been "bullied, intimidated and threatened" by agents of billionaire businessmen brothers Luke and Brian Comer over five acres of land in north Co Dublin. Rory Bridgette and Albert Murphy have used lands at Cloghran, Swords, near Dublin Airport, for grazing their horses and ponies since they went into occupation of the property in 2003.
