Fianna Fáil Spokesperson on Housing and local TD, Darragh O’Brien has said the Government’s Pyrite Remediation Scheme is leaving homeowners behind and more needs to be done to fix on-going problems for home owners.

Deputy O’Brien raised the issue at the Joint Housing Oireachtas Committee on Housing recently calling for more to be done for home owners affected.

“I am pleased that the Pyrite Resolution Board must now appear in front of the Joint Housing Oireachtas Committee where I will be raising issues on behalf of home owners who cannot access the scheme.

“The pyrite remediation scheme needs to be expanded so that all homeowners affected can have their homes repaired in the instances where their insurer won’t pay out.”

“To date, over 1000 homes have been remediated to date but so many are being left behind and more needs to be done to help these people,” concluded Deputy O’Brien.
