50 children from across Donegal have held a protest outside Leinster House this lunchtime, calling for 100% redress for their mica-affected homes.

The Minister for Agriculture told the children that an updated redress scheme for homes affected by mica will be published in the next two to three weeks.

 

"Maybe Santa won't come at Christmas because all the chimneys are cracked," said one child who had travelled from Donegal to Dublin.

Another said, "all the homes have little children thinking they won't have homes for Christmas is just heartbreaking.

"I had to come up to Dublin three or four times - I don't think we'd have to do that without the Government."
