A prominent member of the group protesting against the Corrib gas pipeline has been hospitalised after a confrontation with gardaí in Co Mayo this morning.

Eye-witnesses say local teacher Maura Harrington lost consciousness after being knocked to the ground by a member of the Gardaí. 

The incident happened just before 8am while local residents were gathering for their daily protest at the site of the Corrib gas terminal in Bellanaboy.

Independent TD and local doctor Jerry Cowley treated her at the scene before an ambulance arrived to take her to hospital.
