Although Eamon Ryan only signed the final consents for work at Glengad yesterday, there were already over 40 security personnel present on the site. They were wearing dark, military-style clothing with no visible identification badges. In scenes reminiscent of last year at Glengad, they used excessive force in dealing with the group, which included elderly people and children.
For around 45 minutes the group attempted to remove the net and the security attempted to stop them ... Eventually, a pair of scissors was produced and the net was cut in two. After, everyone left together; there were no arrests.
The action taken today is a demonstration of resistance to come if Shell attempt to recommence work in Glengad.
