Mother of three from Sligo arrested over E.S.B. dispute
sligo | environment | news report Tuesday February 08, 2011 13:50 by Sharon Mullen
Pat & Sharon Mullen of Ballymote, Co. Sligo are in a dispute with the Electricity Supply Board, the E.S.B. want to put three 123 foot high electricity pylons on their land carrying 220,000 volt cables. Pat & Sharon are refusing E.S.B. staff entry to their land to install five overhead lines. On the grounds that they have the potential to have adverse effects on their health, their children and communities health and that of their livestock. Furthermore, they are concerned about the almost certain devaluation of four sites on their picturesque land by the erection of these massive 123 foothigh pylons and the subsequent impact on their children’s inheritance. They want the E.S.B. to place the power lines under ground. A simple request!
This dispute is in its 11th year for Sharon and Pat, and their three

The SHell2 sea movement and the people of Rossport are in the same predicament namely that a corrupt government can issue permits for private companies and multinational theives to invade the property of Irish citizens with impunity.
A Major point that all parties are avoiding is that Ireland has for decades been under the the influence of a Mafia style system. The seeds have been sown in every facet of our system and will be very hard to remove. Even though Fianna Fail are not in office their appointees to state boards and institutions will still be running the show. Judges, top Gaurdai, RTE and the media Ombudsmen who are subject to veto by the minister for justice and the dpp Freedom of information have all been manipulated by a corrupt party.
MANY CRIMES INCLUDING TREASON HAVE BEEN COMMITED AND NOBODY IS PUNISHED FOR THEM .
Threfore accountability has to be top of the agenda for all political parties, because to continue with the same old policies will be meaningless.
If criminals are not punished they will continue to commit bigger and better crimes.
CORRIB GAS IS A PRIME EXAMPLE OF MAFIA STYLE MANIPULATION.
People are being abused while politicians are playing games and lining their own pockets
KEEP FIGHTING and try to link with other groups that are fighting injustice.
fight them all the way hold your heads high, a town near me the hell ESB egnored all health issues which was at the time every house had major cancer fights on there hands if you think about it they say mobiles are unoffically bad for your general health multiply it by 1000000000000000000000000 now there is a problem, sharon and pat stand your ground dont give in i saw your cause just now and i will spread the word as much as i can V YOUR NOT ON YOUR OWN
IRELAND along with 43 countries signed up to the Aarhus Convention in 1998. IRELAND is
the only country who still has not ratified it.
Much is written about the Aarhus Covention but main principles would offer protection as a right to people who try to protect the environment.The subject of the convention goes to the heart of the relationship between people and governments,The convention is not only an environmental agreement ,it is also a convention about government accountability ,transparency and responsiveness and access to justice.IT is critical at this time to commit all politicians to ratifying The Aarhus Convention .NO MORE jailing or beatings or batoning our fine PEOPLE OF CONSCIENCE.
don't back down, and get everyone you know to help making posters writing letters etc. its an awful situation, and when the time make sure you have a video camera and that they know you do.
i'd look into putting the cables under ground too to be honest, i don't know but i wonder what affect that would have on the soil and underground water channels and natural energy lines. you could try to make them negotiate with you for it, not the other way round, while you looked into it in more detail, letting them know you are doing so. hopefully they haven't calculated that it'd be cheaper to bully one of your neighbours into letting pylons on their land instead if they have to give up on you but its most likely
sligo s not far from mayo, a visit to the solidarity camp and locals (someone from the camp will bring ye around to meet people) with a leaflet would be very beneficial for both campaigns
