Irish Independent: Rossport Five's family reunion in court: “THE five Co Mayo men, who have been in prison for 71 days for contempt of court relating to the Shell Corrib gas pipeline, made a brief appearance in the High Court yesterday.”: Thursday Sept 08, 2005
THE five Co Mayo men, who have been in prison for 71 days for contempt of court relating to the Shell Corrib gas pipeline, made a brief appearance in the High Court yesterday.
As they waited for Ms Justice Mary Laffoy, they talked and joked with relatives and friends and some were shown photo albums of recent family occasions. Later, prison officers allowed them to mix with family and friends while they waited for transport back to prison. Their legal team led by John Rogers, SC, had planned to make an application for discovery of documentation in preparation for a full hearing but the matter was adjourned until October 4.
Mr Rogers said the application would take a half day at least and should be adjourned out of the busy vacation sittings. Michael O Seighin, Vincent McGrath, Willie Corduff, Philip McGrath and James Philbin, have been jailed indefinitely for obstructing work on the pipeline.
