The Chief cries foul

[Shell to Sea]  Read a court report on the case here: Court Report On “rape-tape” Sergeant Being Awarded €33,0000

A CORRIB gas protestor who was recently the subject of successful defamation proceedings taken by a former Mayo garda, has appealed the ruling to the Supreme Court.
Fisherman, Pat O’Donnell, known locally as ‘The Chief’, claimed in proceedings before the High Court that Circuit Court Judge Margaret Heneghan ‘could be perceived to be biased’ in her ruling, because she attended a County Mayo secondary school for a time in the 1970s with the claimant, retired Sergeant James Gill.  Mr Gill policed the Corrib protests for a number of years and sat on the monitoring committee.

Shell begins work on Landfall Valve Installation.

Yesterday morning residents of Aghoos, Pollathomas and Glengad were woken by a convoy of heavy vehicles heading in the direction of Glengad. One person drove down to Glengad to see what was happening. At about 7.20am he was stopped by a Garda in Glengad who said the road is blocked. When asked who was blocking the road the Garda said “the Shell boys are doing a bit of work”.

Day Trip To Bangor

Many of us will have heard of Shell to Sea and Rossport Solidarity Camp by now. We have seen fleeting glimpses of this proud community and their fight to safeguard their health, safety, livelihood and environment. We have seen stories of decent local people being jailed for refusing to cooperate with the destruction of their community. We have heard accusations and counter accusations regarding the sinking of a fishing trawler and stolen diesel. We have seen Micheal D Higgins, later to become our proud president, praising the actions of this campaign as essential to democracy. Less than a week later we saw the infamous baton charge by hoodlum gardai against peaceful demonstrators trying to protect their community and more recently, the threats, by gardai, to rape members of the camp.

I was shocked to realise that this struggle has been going on for eleven years.

Having read an article recently on royaldutchshellplc.com regarding an environmental disaster involving the release of untreated effluent into the bay and breaches in building regulations at the Shell compound in mayo, I was moved to join them in their struggle. I had heard about a day of Solidarity that is a regular thing at the camp, and decided to go to the beautiful county of Mayo to offer my support.
