Navy called in over Shell protests

A naval ship has been deployed as protests mounted over a controversial Shell gas pipeline.

The Irish Defence Forces said the LE Orla, with 39 crew onboard, was requested by gardai as back-up at Broadhaven Bay, Co Mayo. A spokesman for the naval service said he could not recall any of its ships ever being directly involved in an operation against civil demonstrations.

Campaigners opposed to the Corrib off-shore pipeline are expected to step up protests there as the world’s largest pipelaying ship, Solitaire, was due to sail in.
