Priory Hall residents don’t hold your breath. above is an image of the other Priory Hall – the Quay Street apartments in Dundalk. ALSO built by Tom Mcfeely and ALSO evacuated due to fire safety concerns (about 18 months before Priory Hall).
The apartment block then became a Disneyland for anti-social behavior attracting local junkies, teen drinking parties as well as thieves who completely stripped the building of fixtures and fittings before ripping all the cables from the walls.
The final straw for the local council came during the summer when one of the top floor penthouses were set alight and completely gutted by rapscallions. last week council workers moved in to brick up doors and barricade windows meaning this local eyesore is here to stay.
