Decision on Corrib pipeline deferred

RTE News

An Bord Pleanála has deferred making a final decision on the controversial Corrib gas pipeline in Co Mayo and has asked Shell Ireland to address concerns it has about its safety.

The 9km onshore pipeline is designed to link the offshore gas field with the multi-million euro refinery being built at Bellanaboy.
