American gadflies Ireland. War protesters.
Ireland, the Shannon airport connection and the transportation of war material.
"US veterans Tarak Kauff and Kenneth Mayers, members of the anti-war organization Veterans for Peace, were fined in Dublin for their 2019 protest at Shannon Airport in Co Clare."
Again from irishcentral.com the story by Kerry O'Shea @kerry_oshea May 04, 2022.
"US military veterans Ken Mayers and Tarak Kauff with a 'Respect Irish Neutrality' banner. VETERANS FOR PEACE"
"US veterans Tarak Kauff, 80, and Kenneth Mayers, 85, received a mixed verdict in Dublin on Tuesday stemming from charges handed to them after they staged a protest at Shannon Airport in Co Clare on March 17, St. Patrick's Day, 2019."
"The two men, both facing the same charges, were found not guilty of the charges of criminal damage and trespass with intent to commit an offense."
"However, by a vote of 10-2, they were both found guilty of interfering with the operation, management, and safety of an airport."
THAT AIRPORT SHANNON IRELAND AN IMPORTANT FACILITY FOR AIRCRAFT ON THE TRANS-ATLANTIC AIR ROUTE, WHETHER COMING OR GOING.
War munitions passing through airport or even in-transit military personnel in uniform often cited as a provocation and violation of Irish strict neutrality!
