A map created by inviting home owners in Donegal to tag their houses has shown the shocking extent of homes affected by Mica.
Highland Radio’s Greg Hughes said it was thought the map might only represent 10% of the houses crumbling with defective blocks.

Some 7,000 people have been impacted by the issue, with videos of the walls of houses literally crumbling away causing shock on social media, while schools and community centres have also been affected.

Families who say their houses are falling down around them because of the use of Mica in construction blocks are to march on the Dáil today demanding full redress.
They want the full cost of house rebuilds necessitated by the use of Mica to be made available to families who have lost their homes through no fault of their own, as happened with the pyrite scandal.
