Mica report to be presented to Minister ‘shortly’


Paddy Farren inspects huge cracks at his mica-affected home in Greencastle. He is one of those eagerly awating the expert panel’s report.

The final meeting took place on Monday of the expert Mica panel, set-up nine months ago to investigate the crisis of crumbling bricks in homes here.

The panel, which was established on April 6 last year, says it will “shortly” present its final report to the Minister for Housing, Planning and Local Government Simon Coveney.

The report will then be made public “at the earliest opportunity” and once the “necessary arrangements are put in place”, the panel said.

The panel, whose chairperson is Denis McCarthy, collected more than sixty technical reports from Donegal private homeowners affected by Mica as well as more than twenty reports from affected homeowners in County Mayo.

The panel said these reports “form an important part” of its research.
