RTE News (Ireland): Calls for probe into exploration licences

RTE News (Ireland): Calls for probe into exploration licences

Sunday 17 July 2005

Protestors against the construction of a gas pipeline in Co Mayo have called for an investigation into the issuing by the state of oil and gas exploration licences.

Up to 1,000 people gathered in Castlebar yesterday in support of the five men jailed for contempt of court in their dispute with Shell E&P Ireland.

The five were jailed two weeks ago for their refusal to obey a court order not to obstruct the construction of the gas pipeline through their lands.

They are opposed to the €300 million development on health and safety grounds.
