More as they find it.

Together they made Priory Hall possible.

McFeely, a former IRA hunger striker, and his business partner Larry O’Mahony, were so close to the society that they even agreed a profit-sharing deal on the construction of firetrap apartment block Priory Hall.
Under the terms of the deal, Irish Nationwide funded the purchase of the site in Donaghmede, Dublin, as well as the construction of 194 apartments.
Its developers also signed a “supplemental arrangement fee” where they agreed to pay Michael Fingleton’s Irish Nationwide €2m from the sale of its 194 apartments…

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.

Some of the 240 evicted residents of the Priory Hall apartment complex in Donaghmede, Dublin protesting outside Leinster House literally moments ago. The residents have been living in temporary accommodation since October. The residents have asked for the government’s help against Priory Hall developer Tom McFeely, after he succesfully filed for bankruptcy in the UK earlier this month.
