Protests erupted in Ireland when anti-war activist and prominent Irish writer Margaretta D’Arcy was sentenced to three months in prison on Thursday of last week.

She was found guilty of trespassing at Shannon airport on a protest against rendition.

Margaretta is 79 years old and suffering from cancer. The court offered to suspend the sentence if she signed a bond committing to not break the law or enter unauthorised zones at the airport for two years.

She refused to comply.
