Two directors of the former Castle Quarry Ltd. in Omagh were disqualified as company directors this week at Belfast High Court.

Francis Conway was disqualified for 8 years and his son Ryan Conway was disqualified for 7 years for a range of discrepancies in connection with the running of the company, before it  went into liquidation in 2009.

The Company carried on the business of quarry owners, stone merchants, lime and limestone merchants from a quarry at Mountfield, Omagh and offices at Farmhill Meadows, Tullyclogher, Omagh.

It went into liquidation on 9 March 2009 with a total estimated deficiency of £858,985.

It was found that Castle Quarry had failed to meet its PAYE, NIC and VAT liabilities, and had caused misuse of a HSBC bank account including a total of 144 dishonoured cheques totalling £114,328, and 49 unpaid direct debits totalling £132,252. 
The company also failed to file accounts in 2006 and 2007.
