*Dr Martina Cleary. 

Optimism has been expressed by the founder of the Clare Pyrite Action Group that Department officials will move swiftly to deal with Clare’s application for inclusion in the Defective Concrete Blocks Scheme.

Dr Martina Cleary was one of the three members of the Clare Pyrite Action Group to meet with the Minister for Housing, Darragh O’Brien (FF) during his visit to the county on Friday. She said that their engagement was “a positive meeting”.

They have been informed that a decision will be made within a matter of weeks. “He listened very carefully and said it will be a matter of weeks and that he has no intention of dragging this out. Work has already begun on reviewing the report which has gone in, it has been with them a month and he acknowledged that. The decision will be made, he also detached it from the procedure going on with the working group, it is now contingent on any further delays that might happen but a decision for Clare will be made, whatever is negotiated will come down the line but the getting onto a grant scheme will not be dependent on a timeline of the working group”.

Minister O’Brien commended the “positive relationship” between the Clare Pyrite Action Group and Clare County Council, particularly its Director of Service Anne Haugh.
