Pipe Down

Synopsis
A 60-minute documentary that tells the story of a rural community in Co. Mayo, Ireland, who have been battling the oil giant Shell over their plans to put a dangerous raw gas pipeline through the community and complete construction of a gas processing terminal that is a threat to their delicate environment. The documentary features interviews with Colin Joyce of Shell Ireland; Willie Corduff, a local farmer and one of the Rossport Five; Pat O’Donnell, a local fisherman; Gerry Coyle, a County Councillor for the area (Fine Gael); Eoin O’Leidhin and Diane Amber, activists with the Shell-to-Sea group; Terence Conway, a spokesperson for the Shell-to-Sea group; and Niall Harnett, who co-ordinates the solidarity camp in the area.
