Harrington undertakes not to interfere with Shell activities

Tuesday, 05 April 2011 14:00

Well-known Shell to Sea activist Maura Harrington has given an undertaking to the Circuit Court not to interfere with workers employed by Shell in their operations at Glengad.

The undertaking was given by her defence on behalf of Maura Harrington, Doohoma, Belmullet, who had custodial sentences imposed in the District Court unconditionally suspended by Judge Raymond Groarke at Ballina Circuit Court on Tuesday last.
The offences related to activities back in 2008 and 2009 when Ms. Harrington was convicted of careless driving, trespassing with intent at Glengad and using a scissors to criminally damage netting at Glengad.

The trespass and criminal damage convictions were appealed on severity only.

Having heard the evidence in the appeal at Castlebar Circuit Court in February of last year, Judge Groarke disqualified Ms. Harrington from driving for two years and fined her €200.

Sentencing on the criminal damage and trespassing charges were adjourned for a year on the undertaking that she would be of good behaviour and not disturb activities of Shell or its employees.

She had adhered to that undertaking, Judge Groarke was told, and as result he unconditionally suspended all custodial sentences. The two-year driving ban remains in place.
