Event Description

In a remote corner of the West of Ireland sits Broadhaven Bay. It is the perfect picture postcard, with the tiny village of Rossport, which nestles behind the
dunes. However, this peaceful tranquility belies the turmoil that lies beneath, and the unique nature of the coastline which has sustained generations of
farmers and fishermen, has also delivered to Shell Oil the perfect landfall for the Corrib Gas Pipeline.


In the most dramatic clash of cultures in modern Ireland, the rights of farmers over their fields, and of fishermen to their fi shing grounds, has come in direct
conflict with one of the worlds most powerful oil companies.


The Pipe is a story of a community tragically divided, and how they deal with a pipe that could bring economic prosperity or destruction of a way of life
shared for generations.
