Mining rights for Co. Donegal ...

Company granted "mining" rights to large portions of Donegal:

"This is the same area where Minister Eamon Ryan refused a license to prospect for uranium in 2007, citing the government's opposition to nuclear power, and the significant environmental and public health concerns surrounding uranium mining, including contamination of ground and surface water supplies and radiation levels," the spokesperson said ...
The company who got the rights appears to have been newly created, which may raise some concerns:
The also say Mytilus Mining Ltd was only formed on December 8, 2009 and the registered address of the company is not in Antrim, as stated on the public notice, but is at 74, Haddington Rd, Dublin 4, according to documents lodged with the Companies Registration Office (CRO)
This is also the address of the Ghana Consulate in Ireland, Minerax Ltd and Moydow Mines International Inc and all four share the same phone and fax numbers.
Indeed, they claim, the Ghanaian Honorary Consul, Noel P Kiernan and Joe Breen, a director of Mytilus Mining Ltd, were both directors of Moydow Mines International Inc which had gold and diamond mining interests in Ghana, Sierre Leone, Namibia, Liberia and Angola.
