BREAKING: Mica-affected homeowners call for boycott

Ongoing protest in Carndonagh by mica-affected homeowners

BREAKING: Approximately 200 Inishowen mica-affected homeowners and their supporters are currently staging a protest in Carndonagh. 

The protest is happening at a construction site on the Derry Road in the market town, where the firm GDC Property Developers is building houses. Traffic has ground to a halt in the area. 

Speaking on behalf of the protesters, Mr Paddy Diver said: "We are protesting today, because this company is using blocks from  by the same company which provided the mica blocks, the defective concrete blocks, for houses all over Inishowen and wider Donegal.

"We are calling on GDC to immediately boycott the Inishowen company which sold the mica blocks and to cease using their blocks in this particular development. We are also calling on Donegal County Council to boycott the company."
