"From a strategic planning perspective, this is the wrong site; from the perspective of Government policy which seeks to foster balanced regional development, this is the wrong site; from the perspective of minimising environmental impact, this is the wrong site; and consequently, from the perspective of sustainable development, this is the wrong site"
Opponents of the Corrib gas pipeline in Co Mayo have announced plans to hold a national demonstration in Dublin later this month as part of their ongoing campaign.
The rally by the Shell to Sea group will be held on Saturday, February 24th. Last month, the Environmental Protection Agency announced its intention to grant a licence for the refinery being built in Bellanaboy by Shell. Local residents have been holding a series of demonstrations in the area to highlight their ongoing opposition to the project, which they say puts the community in danger.
