Website Stuff

Eoin's picture

Hi N,

I'm just testing out the new forum stuff.  Try it and let me know how it goes.

I did a bit of stuff on the website.  I embedded the twitter feed and also a front page feed from Shell to Sea.

I also changed the banner a bit.  Let me know what you think of that.


Greetings from sunny, beautiful Mayo!!!

Shell has started peat removal as we come into winter (which so far is looking better than summer, weather-wise). We are keeping up the protests here but people are needed. Come and visit the new warm and cosy winter camp, we’re hardly roughing it!

In this update:
1. Peat haulage and actions update
2. Stop Shell for a day
3. Day of Solidarity, Sat 10 December
4. Court update
5. Fionnuala the Tunnel Boring Machine
6. Funding, call-out for fundraisers
7. An Taisce settlement
8. Wishlist

The company planning to extract gas from West Cavan has broken its commitment to push regulators to demand chemical-free fracking, The Anglo-Celt can reveal. At a public information meeting held in the Slieve Russell Hotel in Ballyconnell on September 14, Mr Moorman gave assurances that the company would submit a recommendation to the State’s regulator over gas extraction, the Commission for Energy Regulation’s (CER), that chemicals should be banned from fracturing fluid.
