Tara - the setting for the Irish invasion last year - is under threat! frown mad frown

(The below is copied from an email from Kat. Thanks for the heads up on this hug )

Tara, one of the most important sacred sites in Ireland is under threat due to the Irish government's plan to build a Motorway across it!

For more infomation

Click Here

Though it seems futile as the government seem to do what they want regardless, please sign the online petition to try and stop yet another motorway and moneymaking initiative destroying Irish heritage

Sign the petition here...

Please, please, please take the time to sign this petition.

It will be a very sad day if the motorway plans go ahead.... evil moneymaking censored mad

You can see just how beautiful Tara is, by checking out the video which can be found on this website

not across it, thankfully... just right next to it, which is bad enough so I'll still sign, but at least even if they do it the hill will still be okay. Phew.

your a star hellz

its so sad

its sadder again that this kind of stuff is happening way more than anyone will admit. Tara is lucky that it is so high profile... there are many sites in ireland that are just as special that have simply been bulldozed over...

I cant remember many trees there. wink

Such a major site cant be let to be dozed at all . Archaeology in Ireland is mostly rescue stuff from work like this where they push something over then have to madly find whats there.
Roads dont have to be straight surely. Go around the monument.

Plus isnt there a major highly to Dublin nearby anyway. confused

Is it the Truth?
Is it Fair to all concerned?
Will it build Goodwill and Better Friendships?
Will it be Beneficial to all concerned?

I signed it, and in all honesty if I am financially secure enough when/if this petition fails and they decide to put a highway through anyways, I hope I will be able to travel to ireland and take direct protest action.

This type of thing makes me deeply sad. Reminds me of the oka crisis in montreal.

Ermm.

As far as I remember, planning has gone ahead and the motorway will be built anyway... frown

But a few friends of ours are trying to do more things on the hill, to raise the profile and to show that the site is still very much alive and in use. Many different communities use that space from time to time throughout the year... they just need to be drawn together.

The 'invasion' last year was a great example of how the energies of that place are still very real...

Take care x

Unfortunately, this battle has already been fought, and lost. On March 15th the Supreme Court ruled in favour of the developers, and made one individual, Vincent Salafia, who had led the protests, liable for 600,000 in legal costs.

Sometimes this country really saddens me.

Yep yep... but some people (like Johnny) are still trying to keep Tara in people's minds... it may not change anything, but doing nothing at all certainly won't.

There are plans for one next to a place near to my heart, stonehenge, well, this time it's not over or alongside, it's UNDERNEATH! they want to put a tunnel there:

https://www.savestonehenge.org.uk/




i'm sure i remember a thread about this somewhere, but i'm going to ask this question anyway....

asn't this a good thing? isn't it supposed to stop roawds being built up to it? i though the idea was that they could have the road there, and yet when you're actually at stonehenge you're actually out in the middle of nowhere? that's kind of the impression i got.

i think it would be amazing to be able to visit and just see fields for miles around. smile

Hey

I was up with the Tara protesters yesterday and the battle may have been lost in the High Courts but they're not giving up. Rob, Debbie and the rest have been living there since last June, they want us to try to organise a massive fire gathering on the first of May so I'll pass their number on to Brian in DIT who organises everything in Dublin now. If the fire gathering goes ahead I'll ask him to put up a post here. On a seperate not the problem isn't only with the actual hill of Tara, the problem is that the whole Boyne Valley will be distroyed by the motorway. The Boyne Valley has over 150 sites including graves dating back from the stone age, the actual hill is just the most famous one. While up with the Tara protesters Debbie (she's really the one to talk to about this) took me around sites all day, believe me this is about more than a hill.

Anyway, I'm up with the protesters regularly so I'll keep you all informed.

Similarly with Tara/the Boyne Valley: Salisbury Plain is full of ancient scheduled monuments, both above and below ground, very many of which are linked to Stonehenge, not to mention it being a site of special scientific interest as well, so tunnelling definitely wouldn't be such a good thing.

Hey

... they want us to try to organise a massive fire gathering on the first of May...



I know that's Bealtaine and all, but why oh why do the Tara protestors always have events such as this midweek confused I would love to go to this, but yet again, I can't because I have a job to go to...

Keep us posted about whether or not this is going ahead. I can at least tell other people about it, if not join in myself hug
