Letters sent to Shell claim 'ongoing harassment'

By: 
Lorna Siggins, The Irish Times

LETTERS FROM more than 400 residents of a north Mayo parish who claim that they are being subjected to “ongoing and escalating physical and psychological harassment” have been delivered to Shell EP Ireland.

The 409 signed letters were presented by community representatives yesterday to Shell’s offices in Belmullet, Co Mayo.

The lead Corrib gas developer is still working on a response to An Bord Pleanála in relation to its controversial onshore pipeline route, and has applied to the Department of the Environment for a foreshore licence to conduct further investigative work to this end.

Glengad resident Eamon Ó Murchú, who co-ordinated the delivery of letters with Inver resident Terence Conway, told The Irish Times that the correspondence reflected the depth of feeling in the area about the project.

Dalkey is about to become Ireland’s Dubai. Providence Resources is set to commence drilling for oil off the coast of Ireland’s most chic village, which is home to celebrities like Bono, Neil Jordan, Enya, Van Morrison and Pat Kenny. 

Obviously one assumes that in such a fair and democratic society as Ireland the same rules will
apply in fashionable Dalkey as have been implemented in faraway Bellanaboy. So, let’s speculate on the terrible fate that awaits the good burghers of Dalkey.

Shell’s Corrib Gas Pipeline Route Declared Unsafe by Irish Planning Board

Newsletter of The Goldman Environmental Prize

In November 2009, after a nearly ten-year campaign by citizens groups against Shell’s high-pressure gas pipeline in the rural community of Rossport, the Irish Planning Board has deemed the route “unacceptable” on safety grounds. This represents a stunning victory in the campaign led in part by 2007 Prize recipient Willie Corduff, though time will tell if the ruling will hold.
