Report of The Pyrite Panel

The Department of the Environment recently published the long awaited report on the issue of Pyrites.
The issue of pyrite heave first came to the attention of the Department of the Environment in mid-2007 by way of representations from politicians and in media coverage. Initially it was thought that the problems were confined to a number of private housing developments in the Fingal County Council area where the sub-floor hardcore fill was reported to contain a naturally occurring mineral known as “pyrite”. However, it soon became clear that the problem was more widespread and it later transpired the problem of pyrite heave was evident in five local authority areas, Fingal, Dublin City, Meath, Kildare and Offaly.

Below is a link to the report which sets out recommendations for the remediation of properties experiencing problems with pyrites.
