'The Pipe'

This is the story of a community tragically divided over a pipe that could bring economic prosperity or destruction to a way of life shared for generations. The Pipe is set in a remote and tranquil corner of western Ireland at Broadhaven Bay and the tiny village of Rossport, where 2007 Goldman Environmental Prize winner Willy Corduff has lived his entire life. 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.
