Ministers kept in the dark over British spy

By: 
Ellen Coyne - The Times

A secret report on a British police spy has revealed that the former garda commissioner refused to deny that he gave permission for an undercover UK officer to work in Ireland.

Martin Callinan defended “confidential” arrangements that the gardaí could have with British police that would allow undercover agents to spy in the Republic without the Irish government being informed.

Corrib benefits from high price of gas

[Shell to Sea]The Oil & Gas giveaway in action:   The Corrib Gas partners made $589m  (estimated €532m) last year and yet paid no royalties or tax.

Taken from Pg 50 of Vermilions Annual Financial Report 2016: available here

 

The Corrib Partners are benefiting from a relatively high gas-priced product and recorded estimated sales of over €420m in the first full year of production at the Corrib gas field.

Production started on the field at the end of 2015. For the 12 months of last year, the Corrib Partners, including Shell Ireland, recorded estimated revenues of (Canadian) $589m from the production of gas from the field.

This follows a new report by one of the Corrib partners, Canada-based Vermilion showing that it has generated sales of $109m for the 12 months.

Vermilion owns 18.5pc of the field and based on Vermilion's Corrib sales between January and December of last year, the total sales from the field for the three partners would be $589m (€423.47m).

Maurice McCabe: We are entitled to the truth today- justice can follow

By: 
Maurice & Lorraine McCabe

[Shell to Sea]  We salute the bravery and tenacity of Sergeant Maurice McCabe and family in trying to bring much needed reform to the Gardaí and other State agencies. 

Read the full statement by Maurice and Lorraine McCabe released Monday February 13, 2017

We have endured eight years of great suffering, private nightmare, public defamation, and state vilification arising solely out from the determination of Maurice to ensure that the Garda Siochana adheres to decent and appropriate standards of policing in its dealings with the Irish people.

Our personal lives and our family life, and the lives of our five children, have been systematically attacked in a number of ways by agencies of the Irish state and by people working for the state in those agencies.
