Sinn Féin’s environment spokesperson for Dublin South East, Daithí Doolan has called on the Dublin city manager to explain the alleged fuel deal that Dublin City Council has with Shell Oil.

Speaking today from City Hall Cllr. Doolan said: “If true, it is unacceptable that any such deal exists.

“Last year Dublin City Council passed a motion expressing their support for the Rossport Five and against Shell’s actions in Mayo.

“In light of this motion and the increasingly distressing scenes of Shells bully boy tactics in Mayo, I find it disturbing that allegations of a fuel deal between the Council and Shell have emerged.

“The situation must be clarified immediately. Dublin City Council is the largest local authority on the island and any such deal will unfortunately be seen as an endorsement of Shells shameful behaviour in Ireland.” and its sister non-profit websites,,,,,, and are owned by John Donovan.
