The Minister for Housing has been urged to take action to prevent a major Mica protest this Friday.
Thousands of families are expected to travel to Dublin from Donegal, Mayo, Clare and other counties to once again protest for 100% redress.
But a direct appeal was made to the Minister for Housing, Darragh O’ Brien today in the Dáil.
Donegal Sinn Féin Deputy Padraig Mac Lochlainn asked the Minister not to force families to make the journey to save their homes.
“Minister, you have it in your power today to bring an end to the families’ agony,” Deputy Mac Lochlainn said.
“You can tell them that they do not need to come to Dublin, that they will have 100% redress.
“You may not have all the details but surely you can give them that assurance.
“Minister, the families have not gone away, they have risen above the trauma and they have found their strength and it’s powerful.
“They have won the hearts and minds of the people of Ireland, because the people of Ireland know what’s right. Do not force them to come to Dublin again this Friday, do the right thing, end their agony, tell them that they will have 100% redress.”
