On a damp night in February 2003, as the US prepared to invade Iraq, five Catholic worker activists scrambled across runways and broke into a hangar at Shannon Airport. Swinging hammers and a pickaxe, they did more than GBP2.5 million in damages to a US Navy transport plane. The five were hit with the full weight of the law, and were quickly condemned by the media and much of the anti-war movement. But three and a half years later, a Dublin jury decided they were innocent of any crime.
