Help Good mechanic in co antrim

Hi Everyone

I am hoping this post will help me out and settle alot of frayed nerves as of late.
A few months ago my mechanic changed the upper left & right rear wishbones and also replaced the rear bushes. He seemed confident enough that he had done a good job and the car has been running grand since getting this done. However, to my horror, my neighbour stopped me one night to tell me that the 2 back tyres were sitting out & at a slant - something I have never noticed before and now realise looks totally "wrong" (they do not sit parallel like any other normal back tyres on any cars I have seen). Took the car back down to the same mechanic and have now found that because of this the 2 said back tyres are completely bald in the inside - so much so that the wire threads are practically coming through. After replacing the parts above, the tyres obviously have not been aligned properly & this is causing me much concern. This will now need to be done & probably at extra cost to myself. Not only that - another stint in a garage for my beloved car when I should be out enjoying her in this good weather. A good alfa mechanic surely would have known what to do????? We have used this same guy for many years servicing & fixing our bog standand, mundane cars like mgs, renaults, fords, etc, but this is the first time we have ever owned an alfa & I am now realising that not every mechanic knows how to fix her problems. This is the first real problem we have had with her and I am at my wits end. I want to be able to leave her into someone that has had good experience with alfas & knows exactly what they are doing - piece of mind I think they call it. Any ideas or names of mechanics is much appreciated. I cannot leave this car into someone I dont trust can fix her (or could possibly end up doing more her more damage than first thought). Your replies are much appreciated.
