A night-time vigil to show support for Maura Harrington and Erris people struggling against Shell!

Shell to Sea activists and friends gathered at Daunt Sq. for a candle-lit vigil tonight to show their support publicly for Shell to Sea, and to show support for local anti-Shell activist Maura Harrington, whose hunger strike against the pipe-laying ship the Solitaire being in Irish waters continues.

Gathering for the vigil

Shell to Sea activists gathered tonight at Daunt Sq., Cork at 9pm to hold a candle-lit vigil for Maura Harrington's continuing fast outside the Shell compound gates up at Glengad, Co. Mayo. The gathered activists lit candles and gave out leaflets to and engaged with passers-by explaining the current situation in Co. Mayo. Good to see many old faces, and a few new ones too! The vigil was continuing when I left about 10:30 pm.

More Cork S2S events will be happening over the weekend - keep an eye out for them!

Cork Shell to Sea aims to meet again regularly and to be very active again soon taking the fight to Shell both in Cork and also when we will be in Mayo! there's much to be done in the coming weeks - mobilising for action in Mayo over the coming weekends, and rebuilding the campaign to continue the fight against Shell and the state. Contact us at, and help safeguard Erris' and Ireland's future!

Good turnout folks, keep up pressure and publicity. Maura is brave and deadly serious. Protest to Shell and Solitaire's owners, Allseas:

Last night there was another vigil for Maura in the city centre and today a vigil and leafleting on Paricks bridge from 5 till 7pm. There seems a high level of awareness and support from locals here and interest from foreign visitors, with people asking what they can do rather than wanting to sign a petition.
