Shell in Rossport 16/06/2005

category mayo | environment | news report author Thursday June 16, 2005 13:14author by JohnMauthor address Rossport, Ballina, Co. Mayo Report this post to the editors

Encroaching on private lands

This morning (June 16th) sometime before 9am Shell workers again attempted to enter private lands in Rossport , Co. Mayo, as part of their preparation work for the Corrib upstream pipeline development (this was also attempted yesterday afternoon, details to follow later). Permission from the Corduff and McGrath families, on whose lands the Shell were attempting to work , was not given. in the face of physical intimidation. The Gardai were called to the scene, and were forced to transport Mary Corduff to seek medical attention due to the stress of the situation. The Corduffs have in the last few moments returned from the doctor in Belmullet (20 odd miles away) and the situation has yet to be resolved on the ground today.

keep up the good work Willie and Co such a shame more people cannot see what they stand to loose. The Irish Government have a lot to answer for. My question to the press office yesterday "Who runs the country" their answer the people and then the government. If this was the case would this be happening.

I hope Mary is ok. I don't think I met her but Willie is a great guy. If anything I think he was being over polite to his neighbours in the speech he gave during the gathering.
Surely there are only negative results possible from Shell being allowed to carry on with this?
Good luck everybody in Erris. It really is a beautiful place up there and SHELL cannot be allowed to desecrate it .
At some point somebody has to draw a line and say no further, otherwise they'll just keep pushing to see how cynical its possible to be.

More photos from today's encroachment by Shell. They were peacefully refused entry to private lands repeatedly along the proposed high pressure pipeline route. Local Gardai observed the actions, and proceeded to question local residents and observers, at the request of Shell engineer Paul Gallagher. He (Gallagher) refused to identify Shell's ground operatives, while landowners and residents politely aceeded to Garda queries.
