Mica and Pyrite defective blocks in Clare

In the Dáil this evening, I expressed my concern that the number of Clare homes compromised by Pyrite defective blocks is much greater than previously anticipated.

This comes after Clare County Council confirmed to me today that two Local Authority built estates may be affected. Dozens of private houses in Clare have been found to be essentially crumbling a result of defective concrete blocks. Clare must be included in a fully funded Grant Scheme.
