Repairs to apartments likely to cost €250,000

AN apartment development that was already declared a fire risk now requires structural repairs that could run to as much as €250,000.

Members of Dublin City Council heard yesterday that a litany of problems have been uncovered at the Priory Hall development in Donaghmede that need repairing.

A report by the authority's own city architects has found balcony railings were not galvinised and are rusting and will have to be replaced.

Some roofs are holding rainwater because the falls (pitch) are running the wrong way.

Exterior cladding is incorrectly fixed and poorly weathered leading to water penetration and damp inside apartments in the future.
