Irish Times: Corrib project prompts more questions than answers

“If and when Minister for the Marine Noel Dempsey approves installation of the Corrib gas onshore pipeline, he won’t just be establishing a mineral exploration footprint in north Mayo. He will be sanctioning an environmental and public safety precedent for the exploitation of further gas and oil- related reserves off the Irish coastline for decades to come.”

Agenda: Efforts will be made today to free the jailed Corrib gas pipeline protesters. They have much local support behind them. . . and a few experts as well, reports Lorna Siggins

Irish Times: Mayo pipeline contempt case Saturday

Irish Times: Mayo pipeline contempt case Saturday

“You conclude your Editorial with the assertion that “once binding decisions are taken by the Government and the planning authorities, the law must be obeyed”. The “must” here is a legal must, not a moral must, and that makes all the difference.”

Saturday July 09, 2005

Madam, – In an Editorial of July 5th, you describe as “too simplistic” the efforts to represent the confrontation between the Mayo protesters and Shell “in a David and Goliath light”. You then go on to support your contention by saying that, up to the time of their jailing “these men were not representative of local opinion”. read more

Irish Times: Erris priests concerned about jailed men’s plight

“Priests in the Erris area of north Mayo have expressed concern about the “current impasse” in relation to the Corrib gas project and about the situation of the five residents imprisoned indefinitely for contempt of court.”

Lorna Siggins, Marine Correspondent

Priests in the Erris area of north Mayo have expressed concern about the “current impasse” in relation to the Corrib gas project and about the situation of the five residents imprisoned indefinitely for contempt of court.

Meanwhile, Shell has issued a statement robustly defending the importance of the project to the Irish economy.

In a statement issued yesterday, the priests said they had a “very special concern” for the five men – Micheal O Seighin, Willie Corduff, Brendan Philbin, and Philip and Vincent McGrath – and their families. read more

Irish Times: Plea set for discharge of men’s jailing order

“When adjourning those proceedings to next week, the judge said that the fate of the five men was in their own hands, and it was up to them to purge their contempt.”

Friday July 08, 2005

Lawyers for five local people who have been in jail for more than a week for breach of court orders restraining obstruction of the installation of a high-pressure gas pipeline in Co Mayo are to bring an application to discharge the order by which the men are jailed.

Sarah Belshaw, for the men, secured leave yesterday from the president of the High Court, Mr Justice Joseph Finnegan, to issue a motion for discharge of the order made by the judge on April 4th last which restrains obstruction of works connected with the installation of the pipeline by Shell E&P Ireland Limited. read more

Irish Times: Mayo pipeline contempt case

Irish Times: Mayo pipeline contempt case

“The Rossport five and their families have one demand only. They require that normal international technical standards be adhered to in the siting of this pipeline complex. Nothing more but nothing less.”

Thursday Jul 07, 2005

Madam, – Your Editorial of July 5th on the Mayo contempt case asserts that “the Health and Safety Authority accepted that the pipeline met international standards.” In fact the Shell pipeline was never subjected to the planning process: by Ministerial fiat, it was exempted from planning. An Bord Pleanala was not involved. The HSA have no function in this pipeline and has refused to carry out a safety analysis, even when requested to do so on a commercial basis. read more
