Council members meet imprisoned men


24 August 2005 11:56

Members of Mayo County Council have been meeting with the five men imprisoned as a result of their objection to the Corrib gas pipeline.

The meeting at Clover Hill Prison was to include examining possible options to secure their release.

Paddy McGuinness of Fine Gael said the options being discussed centred on the men's concerns about health and safety arising from Shell's Corrib gas field project.

However, with the men entering their ninth week in prison, a spokesperson for the Shell to Sea Campaign says they will remain in prison unless Shell drops its High Court injunction.
