Eight arrested over Shell protests

Gardaí have made a number of arrests in Co Mayo this evening following further protests over preparatory works for the laying of the controversial Corrib gas pipeline.

The arrests were made at Glengad Beach where it is planned to bring ashore the pipeline which will link the Corrib gas field and a €300 million refinery which is being built nine kilometres inland at Bellenaboy.

At about 7pm opponents of the project took part in another demonstration with kayaks and afterwards there were scuffles between the protestors and security staff and gardaí.

The eight people arrested have been taken to Bellmullet Garda Station.
