No, these people are not the cast of a new BBC comedy drama set in the some rural idyll. They are in fact, the five peace protestors who yesterday broke into a hanger at Shannon airport before unleashing their wrath upon a US Navy transport plane. They also built a 'peace shrine' and started work dismantling the runaway with pickaxes and lump hammers. It appears that the lonely Guard assigned to secure the hanger was powerless to stop them. Now the talk is of bringing in the Army (the Irish one) to prevent further breachs of security by the dreadlocked menace. One can only presume the local Gardai are too busy elsewhere to provide much assistance. Note to terrorists - do not get any ideas...contrary to appearances, Shannon is not an easy target, and anyway Ireland is a neutral country, isn't it?
