Speaker tells of stirrings in Rossport

Leona Nally - Maynooth Advocate News

We sit and watch protesters in groups, some lying on a road, some standing at the side. All there for the same reason. We watch the gardaí as they carry out their duties of picking people up off the road and throwing them over the side of a ditch, or dragging them to the side of the road by their legs. The jeeps arrive, and the real fun begins. As protesters stand in front of the jeeps, Gardaí push them out of the way.
