The North Mayo Pyrite Group’s campaign for 100% redress for homeowners impacted by pyrite-contaminated block work gained another significant boost yesterday with Mayo GAA legend, David Brady, backing the cause.
Brady, who has more than 9000 followers on the Twitter social media platform, Tweeted about the campaign yesterday afternoon, Thursday, June 10, confirming that he will be joining the planned national demonstration march in Dublin next Tuesday, June 15 in support of 100% redress for homeowners impacted by pyrite and mica contamination in Mayo and Donegal.
His backing builds on the momentum established by award-winning British actress, Anna Friel, who also Tweeted about the campaign for redress last Tuesday.
In his Tweet Brady remarked that he had witnessed at first hand the devastation being experienced by impacted neighbours in his home town of Ballina.
The Tweet has since been shared by other Twitter users who have tagged more personalities from the sports world, urging them to back the campaign too.
