There's good news for householders in Mayo whose homes have been damaged by pyrite.

Mayo County Council has appointed an officer to administer the Pyrite and Mica Remediation scheme, which will be published at the end of this month.

Mayo FG Senator Michelle Mulherin says she's been informed by Housing Minister Eoghan Murphy that the scheme will be published at the end of January and Mayo County Council will be in a position to accept applications thereafter.

Mayo County Council has confirmed that they have appointed an in-house officer to administer the scheme, and soon after it's published, the council will hold a workshop for affected homeowners, so people can understand the scheme and how it will operate.

Senator Mulherin says she now hopes this long drawn out process can be finalised, and the scheme put in place.

€40 million was allocated for the scheme in the last Budget.
