McFeely given legal notice for €100,000 damages
A woman who is owed more than €100,000 in damages against Coalport yesterday served legal documents on its director, former IRA hunger striker turned property developer Tom McFeely, as he left the High Court yesterday.
Theresa McGuinness secured an award for €103,000 damages in the High Court in July 2009, after she sued the company for attempting to sell her a house in Balrothery, Co Dublin, which had "serious structural defects".
Ms McGuinness had already paid a deposit on the €352,000 house in 2002 and had permission from Coalport to carry out some works on the property before the sale was completed.
However, she argued there were serious defects with the roof tiling and the company said it was not going to finalise the sale with her and later sold the house to another buyer.
Yesterday, Ms McGuinness said she had not received any of the money she was owed and she wondered about Mr McFeely and Coalport's ability to look after the residents of Priory Hall.
