However, they also paid tribute to Dublin City Council's Chief fire officer, who assured them he would deal with the deficiencies of their homes.

Under the scheme, owner-occupiers will see the apartments transferred to Dublin City Council with residents given pre-approval to buy new homes.

"Publically, this has been in the media for two years, but we have been battling for six years since we moved into Priory Hall in relation to all the issues."
