    Default Possible Rathlin Island oil discovery.

    Oil has been discovered during testing...

    "An Irish oil and gas exploration and production company has been offered a petroleum exploration licence over Rathlin Island in Northern Ireland."

    Is this the area where up to 100 billion barrels were found a few years ago? I only heard about that for a little bit on the news,but it seemed like it was censored,along with other oil discoveries,when oil was going up in price.

    God I hope not. If they discover oil in the next few years, nothing will ever change!

    If there is oil what would be the economic gains for NI? Is it well placed to take proper advantage or will it simply be shipped out.

    Also is this right in the middle of a world heritage site? So will the value of the oil outweigh the potential value of tourists?
