Adams calls on government to ensure Corrib gas pipeline is put offshore

1 October, 2005

Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams MP speaking at the beginning of today’s rally in support of the Rossport 5 said:

I want to welcome yesterday’s release of the Rossport 5 and the fact that there is now to be mediation between the men and Shell.  It is a disgrace that they were locked up in the first place and forced to remain in jail for 94 days.

“Of course this is not just about the men and Shell.  This is an issue for the Irish government.  They need to tell the Corrib Gas consortium to move their pipeline offshore.    They need to act in the interests of people of this country and not multi-national corporations.  I find it hard to believe that such companies would not listen to government advice on this matter.”ENDS
