MAG speak at conference in USA 07.10.19

ON Saturday, the Inishowen based Mica Action Group (MAG) attended the Crumbling Basements conference in Connecticut, USA.
MAG is a voluntary group formed in early 2014 by individuals whose own homes are cracking due to defective blocks. The objective of the group is to seek redress for homeowners affected by this issue.
Ann Owens (Chair) and Eileen Doherty (PRO) of MAG brought the issue of the defective blocks to an international stage by speaking at this US conference.

Ann Owens said, "Today we spoke at the Crumbling Basements conference in Connecticut on the mica issue.
"We were joined by a number of groups (or coalitions) who are also fighting for justice for their homeowners in the US (Connecticut and Massachussets) and Canada (Quebec) and are encountering similar challenges to ourselves.
"The parallels in all of these cases is simply astounding. There were many lessons we have learnt from today's conference and hope to bring some of these to our campaign and equally hope we have shared some of the things that MAG have done well through this journey.
"As I said at the end of my speech 'Ni neart go cur le cheile' which means 'we are stronger together'. Indeed after today, it is clear that this international partnership can result only in benefits for all concerned."
