Sligo Cathaoirleach describes redress speculation as ‘scare mongering’

The Cathaoirleach of the local Authority in Sligo has dismissed what he describes as ‘ scare mongering’ over recent concern being expressed over the county not being announced yesterday along with Clare and Limerick as counties being added to the Mica Redress Scheme.


The Munster counties yesterday joined Donegal and Mayo as selected counties where redress would be paid to houses affected by the defective block condition.


PRO of the Sligo Pyrite Group and Sligo Drumcliff Councillor Thomas Healy expressed his disappointment that Sligo was not included with 200 homes thought to be impacted across the County.


The Cathaoirleach of Sligo County Council is Cllr Paul Taylor.  The Fianna Fáil Councillor says the local Authority in Sligo are still in the process of completing the application process to be included on the scheme and that there is no need for any home owners to be concerned in relation their inclusion.


The Ballymote Tubbercurry Councillor says it’s vital that the right scheme is established for the those impacted in Sligo and moved to assure homeowners that the Council and Councillors are working on securing their inclusion in the scheme.
