Cork man sues for damages over alleged unlawful arrest at Shell to Sea protest

Ann O'Loughlin - Irish Examiner

A High Court jury is due to begin considering its verdict on a damages action by a man who claims he was unlawfully assaulted by gardaí during a Shell to Sea protest in Co. Mayo.

The protest held on August 20, 2011, was aimed at frustrating the approach to the Shell refinery entrance of a vehicle convoy on the public road at Glenamoy, near Belmullet.

A video recording of the protest was shown during Raymond Hanrahan’s case against the Garda Commissioner and State.
