Ireland On-line: Adams denied leave to visit Shell pipeline protestors

“Sinn Féin leader Gerry Adams said today that the five men jailed for obstructing the construction of a Shell gas pipeline in Co Mayo are right to take a stand.”

Sunday 3 July 2005

Sinn Féin leader Gerry Adams said today that the five men jailed for obstructing the construction of a Shell gas pipeline in Co Mayo are right to take a stand.

The five are currently being held in Cloverhill prison for refusing to obey a High Court injunction taken out by Shell.

Mr Adams tried to visit the prison today but was not allowed in because he is not their local political representative. Five local TDs have already visited the protesters.

Mr Adams said the men have serious and legitimate concerns about the pipeline being put through their lands at Rossport and has called on the government to intervene to secure their release.

Further protests are planned for tomorrow in Mayo.
