This paper is, I hope, a demonstration that the political conflict in the north of Ireland has ramifications far beyond overtly political arenas. Issues of public health are not immune from its influence. The case I wish to consider is the public disquiet in South Armagh that has resulted from the use of radiation in British army surveillance and communications technology, and the response of the local health board to that disquiet. Information about the different perspectives in the controversy examined here came both from articles published in the Cross Examiner, the Newry Reporter, An PhoblachtI Republican News and the Irish News, and from conversations with officers of the Southern Health and Social Services Board and members of the Campaign Against Radiation Emissions. © 1993, Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
