by staff reporter

A former chief executive of the Housing Executive has passed away.

Paddy McIntyre, who was from Co Down, was a prominent figure in the housing sector here, beginning his career as a trainee with the Northern Ireland Housing Trust in 1971.

He was appointed chief executive of the Housing Executive in 1999, and during his tenure was responsible for a budget in excess of £700m and a staff of over 3,000.

It was a post he held until he retired in 2010.

That same year he received an OBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours list.

At the time it was described as a "fitting recognition of the dedicated and professional leadership" Mr McIntyre had shown.

A funeral service will be held tomorrow in S Clarke and Son's Funeral Church in Bangor, which will be followed by a private cremation on August 6.

Mr McIntyre is survived by his wife Catherine, children and stepchildren Sinead, Aisling, Orlaigh, Rory and Karen, as well as grandchildren.
