Ghearr an breitheamh Patrick Durcan fianáil €2,000 an duine ar na polaiteoirí ar fhodhlíthe aerfort na Sionna a shárú ar an 22 Iúil 2014 i gcúirt na hÍnse, Chontae an Chláir inniu.

Gabhadh iad agus iad i ndiaidh sconsa an aerfoirt a dhreapadh in iarracht eitleáin as Meiriceá a chuardach d'airm mhíleata.

D'ainneoin go bhfuil cearta agóidíochta ag saoránaigh, dúirt an Breitheamh Durcan i gcásanna slándála go bhfuil sé de cheart ag an rialtas bac a chur ar na cearta sin agus go dtugann fodhlíthe 1994 an ceart áirithe sin.

Dúirt Clare Daly TD nach raibh sé ar intinn aici aon athchomharc a dhéanamh ar an mbreith ach nach níocfadh sí an fhianáil a cuireadh uirthi. 

Dúirt Mick WallaceTD gur bhris siad an dlí d'fhonn aird a tharraint ar shaighdiúirí agus airm mhíleata Meiriceá bheith á n'iompar trí aerfort na Sionna.



Delivering his ruling this afternoon, Judge Durcan said that while there was constitutional right to protest, there were circumstances in which this right could be fettered by the State.

He said he was satisfied that 1994 airport bylaws applied in this case.

He imposed a €1,000 fine on each of the two charges for both defendants. 

Afterwards, Daly said they would not be appealing the decision but that she had no intention of paying the fine handed down by the court. 

Wallace said they took the action to draw attention to the movement of US troops and munitions through Shannon.

He said this had domestic and international consequences, which were being ignored by the Government.
