The Elephant and the Mouse

By: 
Joe Murray - Mayo News

It would appear that Fr Kevin Hegarty occupies the same delusional world as Christy Mahon, whom he quotes in his Second Reading column in the Mayo News of August 14, if he believes that coverage of the Corrib Gas conflict is unbalanced in favour of the community rather than Shell and its apologists. The evidence of Shell’s well-oiled and well-balanced propaganda machine – of which he is an enthusiastic cog- spinning stories aimed at undermining the courageous and legitimate opposition of the local community to this destructive project is clear for all to see.


That Fr Kevin Hegarty is happy to collude with this discredited company is extraordinary. In doing so he conveniently chooses to forget the fate of Ken Saro Wiwa and his colleagues who paid with their lives for standing up to Shell and who are appropriately memorialised at the gates of the refinery in Ballinaboy.

Banners reading "Shell's Pet Rabbit" and "Corrib is not a Dream - It's a Nightmare" were held up just as Pat Rabbitte began speaking. After the banners were forcibly removed Pat Rabbitte was challenged on ignoring his responsibilities to the community in Mayo, that are facing a daily Shell occupation.[2]
