A message from Rossport

Hi Alfred and John,

After having spent part of my summer at the Rossport Solidarity Camp in Co. Mayo Ireland fighting against Shell (and Statoil!) there, I am even more thankful for all your hard work on your website. You are really inspiring. Many of my friends have been involved in that campaign since 2005. Making the international links has been really important for the local community. Maybe some day we’ll meet. Till then, lots of love, kudos, energy and solidarity your way!

You rock. Sticking together, we can beat them! read more

Shell to fund Mayo water well

The Irish Times – Saturday, October 23, 2010

LORNA SIGGINS, Western Correspondent, and TOM SHIEL

SHELL E&P Ireland is to fund drilling of a new production well, but for water, not gas, and in the north Mayo village of Rossport.

The multinational says it is giving €750,000 towards upgrading the village’s water network as a “gesture of goodwill to the Rossport community, which has experienced particular difficulties as a result of the Corrib gas project”.

The money will pay for a new water well, replacement of the distribution network with new piping, reservoir, three-phase electricity and installation of consumer and district metering, the company said yesterday. Rossport group water scheme co-op chairman Tony Corduff said the co-op approached Shell for funding after it was refused by Mayo County Council. An offer by the company to upgrade the 35-year-old scheme was accepted by a majority of the community at a meeting on April 29th, he said. read more
