Fetish for the right way of doing things
Priory Hall was blamed on one rogue builder, but the problem was always a political one, writes Gene Kerrigan
Remember Tom McFeely? The guy who built Priory Hall? If ever there was a ready-made villain, it was Tom. An ex-Provo, a millionaire builder who went broke with all the other millionaire builders.
Tom had a tough, unapologetic air about him. Think of Tom and - well, the word "loveable" doesn't spring to my mind.
Rogue builder, they called him. And, given the state of Priory Hall, no one rushed to amend that description.
