Angry residents of Priory Hall have confronted developer Tom McFeely outside the High Court regarding the serious fire safety defects at the complex.
The 249 residents of the Donaghmede development are to be evacuated to the Regency Hotel in Dublin to allow remedial works to go ahead.
"You couldn't build a snowman" was one of the jibes directed at Mr McFeely who was surrounded by angry residents in the Round Hall of the Four Courts.
High Court president Nicholas Kearns wants a complete package of proposals put in front of him at 2pm today regarding the fire safety works that need to be carried out.
He heard that it is going to cost €368,000 to rehouse the residents at the Regency Hotel for four weeks and to pay for fire officers to attend at the Donaghmede complex.
One resident Darren Kelly stood up in court to say that his family cannot stay in a hotel.
"I've a daughter we've to make bottles for her," he said.
He added the residents do not trust Mr McFeely and Laurence O'Mahony to carry out the fire safety work.
Mr O'Mahony, the court heard, is a bankrupt and he denies that he has anything to do with the development, merely that he owns the land.
