Far too many people across Ireland are impacted by the devastating consequences of pyrite and mica in their homes.

Over the weekend, thousands of homeowners in Donegal and Mayo came out to protest the Government redress scheme for people affected by defective building blocks.

Noel who is from Donegal and a part of the Mica Action Group spoke to Andrea about when he realised his house had mica in it.

Loren Devers a member who set up the North Mayo pyrite Group spoke about the protest this weekend and Eileen Doherty, an affected home owner and campaigner in Donegal also joined Andrea on Lunchtime Live.
