An Irishman Abroad

Dr. Gary O’Toole - Justice In The Water - Part 1

June 26, 2022

Irish swimming legend and campaigner for justice, Dr. Gary O'Toole sits down with to talk on the podcast this week. Gary explains his complicated relationship with the sport of swimming and how it has changed over the years. We look into George Gibney's efforts to preempt Gary's attempt to gather a case against him and the grotesque way in which Irish swimming turned a blind eye when presented with the cold hard facts of the abuse inflicted upon young swimmers in their ranks. Special thanks to Mark Horgan for making this interview possible. We of course get the opportunity in the exclusive members content to discuss the lasting impact of "Where Is George Gibney" and Gary's views on the conspiracy theories surrounding the bizarre verdict that allowed Gibney to skip the country.
