As reported by MayoNews and ShellToSea two week ago...
SHELL E&P Ireland will appear before Dublin Metropolitan District Court on September 5 next over an intense flaring incident at the controversial Corrib refinery on December 31 last, The Mayo News can confirm. The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) has confirmed it issued a summons to Shell last week after a six-month investigation into what locals described as a ‘frightening’ event. They said it lasted 30 to 40 minutes, lit up the sky and was seen from as far away as Achill and Foxford. The fire from the giant chimney stack was accompanied by a ‘low, loud rumble like a supersonic boom’, according to local witnesses ... read full story / add a comment
There is 'a plan' for tomorrow, Wed Jan 13th folks at Castlebar
Courthouse - where we hope and intend to (peacefully) place the
spotlight on the outrageous abuses of the law and the Constitution which
are ongoing daily in our so-called 'Courts of Justice!' Amongst the
issues we wish to highlight are: (1) NO more private or secret Courts.
(2) NO more illegal assaults on the public. (3) Registrars and Judges to
abide by the law. (4) Proper sanctions for fraud, perjury and contempt
of Court (by authority figures). (5) Proper action on legitimate
citizen's arrests. (6) Equality for lay litigants. (7) ..and an end to
multiple abuses of our fundamental rights by politically-appointed
Judges and Registrars. TV cameras are expected, so let's make the most
of it! ... read full story / add a comment
The Mayo Advertiser carried an article on fracking on Aug 22nd. See below.
Mayo needs to wake up to the reality that the controversial method of extracting natural gas from rock — known as fracking — could soon become a major issue in the county.
That is according to two local Sinn Féin representatives who this week urged the public and political representatives to call on the Government to make its position on fracking clear because a number of Mayo townlands in the Swinford and Charlestown areas have long been flagged as possible fracking sites. ... read full story / add a comment

Judge Denis McLoughlin presided over yesterdays monthly sitting of Belmullet district court. Amongst the defendants were 5 people up on charges because of their opposition to the Shell Corrib gas project. Of the Shell related cases only one was heard, resulting in John Monaghan being convicted and fined E350 and disqualified from driving for one year. Of particular note in this case was that some of the evidence that was used to convict Mr Monaghan, came from Sgt Dermot Butler, who was one of the named Gardaí that a former Shell subcontractor claimed helped to transfer the alcohol that he delivered to Belmullet Garda station on behalf of Shell. Also of particular note was that one IRMS security guard also confirmed that IRMS had a practice of profiling certain members of the local community and other campaigners.
