"The government has relinquished control over the offshore areas of our industry. Norway was tough regarding oil companies from the start. You now have an almost embarrassingly large pension fund. The situation for Irish communities, however, is as in Ogoniland in Nigeria - oil is a curse,”
Ryan Turbidy who has a radio show on RTE1 9am Monday - Friday is running an item called the Irish Phenomenon of 2005. The Rossport Five have already been nominated on several occasions by callers/texters etc. The nomination can be a person or an event. See web link below for details.
If enough people nominate the Rossport Five they will be included in the shortlist. There will then be a poll of listeners to select the top person or event of 2005. This is very good free publicity for the Rossport Five.
