Protesters today hailed the temporary closure of a compound linked to a controversial gas pipeline being developed in the Irish Republic by oil giant Shell.

Shell To Sea, a group which opposes the building of the pressure pipeline, said the closure of the compound at Glengad, Erris, Co Mayo, was a tribute to the struggle of hundreds of people who had campaigned against the pipeline.

Five men from Rossport, Co Mayo, are still in prison for failing to comply with an injunction preventing them from obstructing the development of the pipeline.

Mr Justice Joseph Finnegan, president of the High Court, sent the five back to jail for a fifth week after they failed to purge their contempt of a court order.

The men – brothers Philip and Vincent McGrath, Micheal O`Seighin, Willie Corduff and Brendan Philbin – were jailed after they refused to comply with an order banning them from denying Shell EP Ireland access to their farms.

The judge told them it was up to them to purge their contempt before any progress could be made.
