The responses from the Housing Minister to the issues facing people affected by pyrite in Mayo were a ‘waste of time.’
That’s according to Killala woman Barbara Clinton, whose home recently tested positive for pyrite.
Pyrite campaigners from Mayo met Minister Darragh O'Brien yesterday, over a lack of funding for remediation works.
Many homeowners claim that, even with 90% compensation, the costs of rebuilding aren't affordable.
The Government believes its current scheme is "fair and equitable" – but campaigners strongly disagree.
Barbara Clinton, a spokesperson for pyrite campaigners in Mayo told Midwest News they felt that the meeting was a PR stunt.
