There's good news in today's Budget for hundreds of householders in Co Mayo whose homes have been damaged by pyrite in the blockwork.

The Government has signed off in principle on a grant aid scheme to assess and repair homes in Mayo affected by pyrite.

An expert report was published last year which revealed that up to 400 homes across the county were affected by pyrite damage-  particularly in north and west Mayo.

Mayo FG Senator Michelle Mulherin, who has been campaigning for some time for a compensation scheme for the private homeowners affected, has welcomed the news in today's Budget that a Concrete Blockwork Scheme is to be established, and money will be provided from next year to assist homeowners carry out remedial works.
