The struggle of the Rossport Five to oppose Shell E&P’s plan to run a high-pressure gas terminal through their lands in north Mayo has been documented in a new book to be published later this month.
The publication entitled Our Story - The Rossport Five traces the efforts of Willie Corduff, Brendan Philbin, Micheal O Seighin and Philip and Vincent McGrath to keep the company off the lands, and their later imprisonment for 94 days in Mountjoy Prison.
The book, which has been described as ‘an oral history, in that it lets the men tell their own story, also traces the wave of national and the international attention the case received. It has been compiled and edited by Dr Mark Garavan of the Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology, a spokesperson for the Shell to Sea campaign.
Our Story - The Rossport Five is published by Small World Media and will be available from December. Advance orders can be made to irelandfrombelow@yahoo.ie.
