Victims of one of the country's biggest health scandals today said they had grown impatient with the Government and are to press ahead with legal action against the State.
The Irish Thalidomide Association has accused the Taoiseach and some of his ministers of reneging on a settlement.
Thalidomide was a drug taken by pregnant women in the 1950's and 1960s to help prevent morning sickness but it caused babies to be born with physical deformities.
The group has said that many of their members are nearing, or have reached, the age of fifty and claim that the State has neglected to fulfil its promised obligations to ensure that both the recompense and health care requirements of Thalidomide victims are met.
