“The Pipe” film-maker visits Colaiste Einde TY students

Film director Risteard Ó Domhnaill recently visited the transition year students of Coláiste Éinde, Salthill, to talk about his multi-award winning film-documentary “The Pipe”. Filmed by Risteard over a three year period, “The Pipe” chronicles the efforts made by the small community of Rossport in North West Mayo in trying to protect themselves against plans by international oil giant Shell to construct a gas pipeline through their fishing grounds and land.

The transition year students conducted a Q&A session with Ó Domhnaill, after having watched the film, which, they reported, greatly enhanced their understanding of the on-going conflict.
