Shell seeks to discontinue action against Rossport locals

Shell is making an application at the High Court to discontinue proceedings against four Rossport local residents about the route of the Corrib gas pipeline.

Lawyers for the company say they cannot take action against Brendan Philbin, Willie Corduff, Phillip McGrath and Brid McGarry in respect of a line which is not now going to be constructed.

The matter of the route of the of the pipeline is going to be changed on the back of recommendations to move it further away from dwelling houses.

The four however have said they will not back down.

They are taking a counter claim and so want the matter to go to trial.
