FINGAL County Council has confirmed that the low numbers of pyrite cases it has reported in Fingal are only the cases that have been reported directly to the local authority by householders.
Quizzed on the surprising figures by member of Balbriggan Town Council, Cllr. Terry Kelleher (SP), the county council explained: ' The pyrite panel when collating the data, contacted all the structural guarantee companies and asked them for the numbers of claims on their books validated as relating to pyrite. ' They requested the individual local authorities to submit the number of pyrite related complaints received. The CIF, builders and developers also submitted details of cases on their books.'
