Thousands of Donegal mica affected homeowners travelling to Dublin calling for 100% redress

mica dublin protest

Thousands lined the streets of Dublin in the summer

Thousands of Donegal mica affected homeowners are currently en route to Dublin for a mass demostration calling on the Government to provide a fully funded redress scheme.

The protesters will meet at the Garden of Remembrance at 12pm and a significant attendance is expected. It follows a major protest in June where thousands marched through the city centre to Government buildings.

The Government has told families affected by mica it will pay as close as possible to 100 per cent for remediation works to their homes but will not agree to an unlimited scheme offering full compensation.
