We were saddened to hear of the death of Con Colbert, who died on 31st March 2021.
Con was a founding member of Irish Electromagnetic Radiation Victims Network (IERVN) which was set up in 1999, a group who came together due to all suffering ill health effects from EMF radiation from mobile phone masts or other sources
For many years, Con was active in helping and offering support to fellow sufferers and also in raising awareness of this issue whenever and wherever he could, contacting and trying to educate politicians, doctors and health professionals.
Con was usually the first port of call for people who had discovered their ill health and symptoms were due to EMF radiation, many not knowing where to turn and feeling completely alone. Somehow people found Con – he offered help, support, encouragement and kindness, and would put fellow sufferers in contact with each other.
He was the group’s spokesperson at two Oireachtas Committee meetings on the Health Effects of Electromagnetic Radiation in 2006 and 2012.
He was involved with, and liaised with the Irish Doctors Environmental Association who gave public presentations on the dangers of EMF Radiation.
Con was a gentleman.
We offer our sincere condolences to his family.
