Rossport Five voice concerns on pipeline

Five Mayo men jailed for contempt of court arising from their opposition to the Corrib gas pipeline, have said they are more concerned than ever about the safety of the project.
They say they are prepared to go back to jail to stop the pipeline going through their land.
In a separate development tonight, the Minister for Communications, Marine and Natural Resources, Noel Dempsey, said he had been advised there was no legal impediment to asking Shell to halt work on cutting up a section of the pipeline which was illegally welded together.
The Pro-Erris Gas Group says 41 organisations support this move.
