Were flats not checked?
Madam – Regarding the scandal of Priory Hall in Dublin, I can understand how a scoundrel like Tom McFeely, having somehow received permission to build his apartments, would do so to such low standards that they would be considered death traps. But what I find it hard to believe is that they were passed fit for whole families to live in.
Did Dublin City Council not send in its housing experts to examine these apartments before allowing people to take up residence in them?
Did any of these experts sign a document stating that the apartments were suitable for habitation? If so, that person, or persons, should be publicly named and properly dealt with.
