  1. That’s a tad misleading. It makes it look and sound as if Higgins is the one wearing the orange boiler suit and is a 79 year old actress, etc.

  3. This woman should not be in Jail, they let Serial criminals and other types of scum out early and jail an old woman for protesting at Shannon Airport against rendition flights. What a joke this country is.

  5. If she behaves in jail James, she should get out early too. Of course if she’d agreed to behave in the first place she wouldn’t be there now.

  6. Are you joking Paul Gillen? This is a woman who has devoted her life to campaigning against war. From CND, Greenham Common to Shannon she has ceaselessly campaigned against warmongers for over 50 years.
    She should be getting an Award not a spell in Limerick Gaol. This is someone who will not compromise on the meaning of integrity and morality. If only our politicians, bankers and civil servants had a tenth of her courage
