McFeely failed to disclose 'certain assets' , court told
Bankrupt developer Tom McFeely breached a court order and failed to disclose assets in a case brought over his failure to pay a €24,000 debt to a recruitment firm, a judge was told yesterday.
The former IRA hunger striker, who built the notorious Priory Hall apartment complex in Donaghmede in Dublin, owes €24,288 for services obtained from MCR Personnel Ltd, a firm specialising in recruiting for construction. He could face a three-month sentence for failing to comply with an instalment order made earlier and is now attempting to vary its terms.
Yesterday he appeared at Dublin District Court where Benedict Ó Floinn, for MCR Personnel Ltd, told Judge Mary Collins that Mr McFeely was a week late in filing a statement of his affairs. He also said the builder had not “disclosed certain assets including assets in the Isle of Man” and that he was in breach of the court orders and should be jailed.
Judge Collins adjourned the case until October 30th and gave Mr McFeely a week to complete a statement of his affairs.
