on the site. I-RMS is owned by Terry Downes and James Farrell. Farrell is a former Sergeant Major of Irelands Special Forces unit of the Army Rangers, whilst Downes is the former head of security of logistics company, TNT. I-RMS has close links with an African security company, based in Kenya, where Shell also has a large presence.
It was suspected locally that the security personnel employed were from a military background.
One employee of the company involved with the security company at Glengad,
Martin O.Brien was contacted by the Mayo Echo. O.Brien was asked why his
staff were filming swimmers at local beaches, and why the same staff refuse to
wear identification, as required under new security regulations. ''I don't wish to
discuss our clients over the phone'', he said before refusing to discuss the matter
further. www.mayoecho.com/this weeks edition
