This is deeply distressing for those families and the cost implications are devastating in some circumstances.“When the similar issue of pyrite afflicted families living in homes in Dublin and North Leinster, the Government introduced the Pyrite Resolution Scheme under the auspices of the Pyrite Resolution Board to give redress to those families”.“I believe that a similar scheme should be introduced in Donegal to give redress to families here. I will continue to raise this issue until the Government bring forward an acceptable resolution process”.
