I wonder can the 1m be put towards the cost of hiring a reputable builder to finish the work?

Delighted to hear that,I hope that 1 mill is collected and used as a starting point to offset the cost of repair and accommodation for those unfortunate enough to have had any dealings with that "gentleman"

What are the chances of the court recouping the 1 million?

I seem to remember when the residents of Priory Hall confronted him outside the court a few weeks back he said that the bank had already taken his house, so I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for this fine to be paid.

Never mind not getting the €1m from him, looks like he might not even spend a night in jail!

1 does not need to "imagine". One just needs to think through the issues and read the Supreme Court's decision.

I didn't think that Dublin City Council had any jurisdiction over a criminal matter, so I was surprised when the Supreme Court crticised the City Council for not being represented.

Justice Nicholas Kearns jailed him and he appealed that judge's decision.

The reasoning of the Supreme Court seemed better to me.

But later this afternoon, the Supreme Court agreed with counsel for Mr McFeely that the works deadline was not until 28 November and Mr McFeely could not carry out works after being ordered off the site.


The stay will last until a full Supreme Court appeal is heard.


Chief Justice Susan Denham said it was extraordinary that Dublin City Council had failed to show up at today's hearing.
