Huge crowd for first public meeting on Mica Redress


Housing Minister Eoghan Murphy was in Donegal yesterday where he held long awaited discussions with members of the Mica Action Group and a number of public representatives.

While a Mica Redress Scheme was announced ahead of the Budget in October last and formally approved in May there has been a severe lack of information on the detail.
