My "Obtuse" package is written to take care of unstructured interpolation,
and contains five different methods. You could try with your data, and see
if any of the methods work in a satisfactory way. You might download the
package from (free of charge). I have
put a new version there yesterday, and wanted to have that ready before
answering you. Please report if you succeed or not. 

Best regards
