I think what they were saying was that North Mayo was pretty much shagged environmentally speaking to begin with. There's nothing particularly pristine about it.
But are they saying that the intensive environmental monitoring linked to Shell's construction has actually improved the environment?
And there might be some truth in that. The lake had been closed for fishing for summer after summer in recent years due to pollution from farms and forestry. So this week's report of 100 sea trout caught by two anglers in a day's fishing is pretty spectacular. A sign of an improving environment. So Shell is good for the environment? Discuss.
