BelmulletOriginally uploaded by Conor LawlessDuring August of this year I wrote a blizzard of letters for clients of McGarr Solicitors who were worried about their crab fishing pots. As it turned out, they had good reason to be worried. Traditionally, August is the middle of the Long Vacation, and therefore ought to be a sleepy time for law firms.
If you'd like a lawyer's eye view of what happened yesterday in the Corrib Gas case, you can slope over to the McGarr Solicitors website to read up on it. McGarr Solicitors represent two of the Defendants in the Shell case- Brid McGarry and Brendan Philbin. Shorter version: Shell seeking to withdraw the claim that had 5 men put in jail for 94 days last year.
