SEAI - Free Energy Upgrades - External Insulation

    I helped my elderly parents to put in a grant application through the SEAI for a Free Energy Upgrade on an old stone-walled house (built in the 1920s). They qualified but were rejected at the final review on the basis that external insulation was the only upgrade that would be beneficial - but that they couldn't go there because the walls are stone rather than block / block cavity.

    Is there some technical reason why this prevents the application of external insulation? Has anyone else been refused on this basis (with a stone-walled house)?
