State Bank of Countryside is the new owner of the former Sam Maguire’s Irish Pub, which closed in Orland Park without warning in early January.

The bank was the only bidder for the property at 39 Orland Square Drive, which was auctioned off on Friday.

A foreclosure lawsuit was filed by the bank in September 2011 against the popular Orland Park restaurant seeking more than $2.2 million from restaurant owners Michael Wilke, Marian Wilke and MTT Investments LLC.

“All the parties involved wanted to move this sale along,” said Michael Coughlin, an attorney with Burke & Handley, who handled the case.

The sale will become final after it is approved by a foreclosure judge in Cook County.

Sam Maguire’s had been for sale for months before it closed with an asking price of $2.7 million. The property is still listed at online realty websites as being for sale with an asking price of $2.2 million.
