The state has paid out just €400,000 in payments to mica-affected homeowners in Donegal since establishing the controversial defective blocks scheme in 2020, the Business Post has learned.

Figures seen by this newspaper show just 14 houses have received payments through the grant scheme set up to help with the costs of remediating homes damaged by mica blocks. Donegal County Council, which administers the programme, has paid out €397,995.50 between those homeowners.
