Thousands gather in Dublin calling for Government to 100% redress homeowners affected by Mica

Thousands of homeowners who have been affected by the Mica concrete scandal have traveled to Dublin to protest.

The victims of the scandal are calling the Government to cover 100% of the costs associated with their homes.


Approximately between 5,000 to 6,000 homes, mainly in Mayo and Donegal, have been affected by building blocks containing Mica, which were used to build their homes.

Thousands from affected homes have traveled to the capital to voice their concerns, hoping for political intervention in giving them redress.

Eileen Doherty from the Mica Action Group (MAG) said, “Shame on you, Government. Our homes and our lives are being affected by this.”


Doherty said the Government’s response to them in recent weeks has been insulting and dissapointing.

Campaign groups of those affected by the Mica scandal are due to meet Minister for Housing, Darragh O’Brien, to discuss the issue.
