Donegal school children to attend Mica protest outside Dail

More than 50 school-children from Donegal will protest outside the Dáil today over the Mica controversy.

Their homes were built with faulty blocks, containing the mineral, and are in a bad state.

The government’s finalising an updated compensation scheme – and campaigners are demanding 100 per cent redress.

Organiser of the protest, Barry Kearney, says the children have written letters to the ministers for education and children.
