Corrib struggle is about what kind of Ireland we want

By: 
William Callaghan - Dublin Shell to Sea - Mayo Advertiser

There was something strangely apt about the way former Fianna Fail TD Pat Carey signed consents for the Corrib Gas pipeline on the day of the recent general election. It perfectly encapsulated the cronyist, cowardly, short-sighted and undemocratic manner in which this Frankenstein’s monster of a project was created and kept alive by a succession of Fianna Fail ministers.

Shell’s proposed work schedule

472 truck movements per day, coming your way
Shell is shortly expected to attempt construction of the Corrib onshore pipeline. Years later than originally planned, rerouted three times, the onshore pipeline remains the most controversial, dangerous and costly onshore pipeline to be constructed in Ireland.
We face over two years of yet more disruption; being surrounded by  heavy construction traffic, escorted truck convoys, noise and light pollution, van loads of Shell workers, Gardai and private security moving continuously between construction sites in our community.
