Shell to Sea Day of Solidarity in Erris, Co. Mayo


Dublin Shell to Sea are helping to organise transport from Dublin for the national day of Solidarity in Mayo Saturday 10th December.  Shell has begun peat removal from the tunnelling compound in Aughoose. They hope to remove up to 175,000 tonnes of peat from the site and replace it with stone from nearby quarries.

We hope to stop them but need your help!!!!

Dublin Shell to Sea call out follows

Peat haulage began Wedensday (16th Nov) in Mayo. This is the process where Shell removes the peat from the site where they are planning on starting to drill to place the onshore section of the pipeline. They are preparing to construct the pipeline section which will run through the local community.

In order to do this they will have to remove huge volumes of peat from their compound site in the village of Aughoose. This will involve up to 427 truck movements a day along the road.

If you have any spare time now is the time that people are needed in Mayo. You can stay on the Rossport Solidarity Camp (see: for more details).

If you travelling to Mayo from Dublin, especially if you are travelling by car and have room for others, please email Dublin Shell to Sea at or 086 736 2417 to let us know. We will try to coordinate transport for ppl going down where possible.
