Dept of Marine visit Shell in Rossport

An official of the Department of Communications, Marine and Natural Resources visited Rossport, Co. Mayo yesterday escorted by a Shell E&P Ireland representative.
Mike Daly from the Petroleum Affairs Division of the Department of Communications, Marine and Natural Resources proceeded to take photographs of the pipeline route and works in the area, or so it appeared to those present, all the while accompanied by the Shell worker/official. While he stood at the gate and chatted briefly to a number of local people, the Gardaí Síochána were alerted to the fact that the local people were blocking the entrance, something which clearly was not the case.We wait with baited breath to see what the purpose of this photoshoot was.
