Shell has announced that it is to lay off 35 workers at the Corrib gas pipeline in County Mayo. The company said the decision was made as a result of the continuing protests taking place at its sites in Mayo.

Earlier, a County Mayo electrician lost a High Court attempt to stop Shell developing a gas terminal to cater for the Corrib gas field.

Martin Harrington, from Geesala, Ballina, had sought leave to bring proceedings challenging An Bord Pleanala’s decision to grant planning permission to Shell. The case is separate to the row which has resulted in the jailing of five protesters for breaching a court order in relation to the gas pipeline.
