mayo | rights, freedoms and repression | news report Wednesday September 09, 2009 16:46 by Dublin S2S - Shell to Sea
Retired school principal Maura Harrington has been jailed for the fourth time this year in connection with her opposition to Shell’s experimental inland refinery and high-pressure pipeline in north Mayo.
Harrington, a prominent Shell to Sea campaigner, was sentenced to three months imprisonment today at Belmullet District Court for assaulting an employee of IRMS, the private security company hired by Shell. She was also sentenced to three months for trespass on the landfall site at Glengad. The sentences are to run concurrently.

Maura Harrington is in jail because of Irelands reluctance to ratify the Aarhus Convention
which they signed up to 25th June 1998.Forty countries have already ratified .
The Aarhus convention links human and environmental rights ,this would give Maura
Harrington equality before the law .I will be voting no to Lisbon for the second time
because of this.
Same address for postcards, etc.,? Rossport people are always in our thoughts & prayers. Justice demands that Shell, IRMS & Fianna Fáil face the consequences of their doings.
My family was sadden again at your jailing for the fourth time, when will it stop : You are very brave and should not be there for standing up for the health and safety of our community, our thougths and prays at this time of great need for perople around the country to really see all the injustice that has come down on the people of Erris. We hope your released s00n..
As has unfortuantely become traditional there was a solidarity picket on Mountjoy this evening as yet another Shell to Sea campaigner was jailed for standing up to Shell and exposing the great oil and gas giveaway
