Belmullet District Court Report - Shell and Mayo County Council stand co-accused of obstructing the public highway.
- Partners in crime try to avoid further embarrassment by settling with the plaintiff out of court -
Today in Belmullet district court Shell and Mayo County Council stood co-accused in a case for blocking the road during the disastrous attempt to deliver the Tunnel Boring Machine to Shell's tunnelling site at Aughoose in August this year. The co-accused settled out of court with the plaintiff and had the case struck out before the details were made public.
It is rumoured however that the case was taken by a fisherman who was suing for obstruction and loss of earnings, and that the plaintiff settled out of court for one thousand Euro. During the TBM debacle in August the main Ballina North coast road was closed while Shell's jack-knifed lorry carrying the TBM blocked the road for days.
