A DEFIANT message was delivered to Shell E&P Ireland (SEPIL) at a rally in Castlebar, Co Mayo attended by up to 1,500 people yesterday, that there would be serious unrest and protests if the firm did not locate a controversial gas processing terminal at sea.

The wives of five men from the Rossport area of north Mayo, who have been in Cloverhill Prison since Wednesday for denying Shell employees access to their properties, warned there was only one possible solution to the impasse – an offshore platform.

Fine Gael TD Michael Ring told the rally it would cost Shell much cash if they did not locate at sea. Otherwise there would “be a lot of innocent people in jail”.

A statement of demands from the ‘Rossport Five’ held at Cloverhill – James Philbin, brothers Philip and Vincent McGrath, Willie Corduff and Micheal O Seighin – was read out. The five are due back in the High Court again on Wednesday when an attempt will be made to have them released.
