If you are new to the Irish Air Corps Toxic Chemical Exposure Scandal please start by reading Joe Leogue’s summary article from 5th January 2018. This long & detailed article (linked below) will bring any reader up to speed as to the disgraceful working conditions at Casement Aerodrome, Baldonnel. We are grateful to Joe for this article and his work at exposing this scandal so far.
In a series of articles across 2017, the Irish Examiner revealed serious concerns about the working environment within the Air Corps — matters that have seen allegations of a deliberate cover-up, of victimisation of whistleblowers, and of a lackadaisical attitude towards health and safety that has put lives at risk, writes Joe Leogue.
While the stories broken by this newspaper since January have posed a myriad of questions for the State and the Defence Forces, the issues have one common controversy running throughout.
Have technicians within the Air Corps developed cancer, neurological problems, and other chronic conditions as a result of unnecessary exposure to toxic chemicals during their time at Casement Aerodrome?
