Do Avian Influenza Lockdowns Make Any More Sense Than Covid Ones? Wed Nov 30, 2022 07:00 | Robert Nock
The UK's worst ever avian influenza outbreak has devastated poultry farms this year and prompted 'lockdowns' to try to protect the birds. But does this make any more sense for hens than for humans?

Roestown national monument at Tara removed
history and heritage |
Friday March 16, 2007 09:51 by Sickened - The Irish Nation
The NRA and Meath County Council have removed an incredible underground souterrain complex
In the last few days one of the most important newly discovered sites along the path of the M3 motorway was removed completely, and 'preserved' by record
What is going on at Tara?
The complex of beehive souterrains, triple and double, interconnected, has been removed.
Details of the site from the NRA web site can be found at:
Here's a recent article about the site, and efforts to protect it.
Ancient Tara site to be buried under concrete
Mon, Jan 15 07
Protesters are holding a vigil in an effort to prevent the building of the M3 motorway over a 6th century underground passage, at Roestown, Co Meath
IT's probably 1,500 years old, and it has survived Viking raids and the ravages of time, but in just a few years it will be buried under tonnes of concrete.
Archaeologists excavating the route of the M3 motorway from Dublin to Navan have unearthed a 6th century souterrain, or underground passage, in near-perfect condition at Roestown, Co Meath.
The souterrain, which was used to store food and valuables and as a place of refuge, will not be preserved for future generations and as a tourist site.
Instead its location and condition will be recorded before it is capped and the motorway built over it.
It is just one of dozens of sites of archaeological interest in the Tara Skryne valley - where Ireland's High Kings were based, according
to tradition - that will be treated similarly, to allow construction of the road.
Since last June, a group of protesters has camped on the Hill of Tara in an attempt to save the Valley of the Kings from being bisected by
While hard-pressed commuters want the new road, those against it question why the motorway has to be built through the middle of the
country's most important archaeological site.
The National Museum has also expressed concerns about the routing of the motorway.
Since June 21, a fire has continuously burned at the Tara Solidarity camp, tended by the thousands of protesters who have made the trip in an attempt to stop the motorway from going ahead.
The protesters include conservationists, local people and archaeologists, united in their intention to make the road an election
issue and have the motorway rerouted.
"We're hoping to get it to the top of the agenda locally and nationally," Michael Canney said yesterday.
"We're getting a fund together, and there will be a lot of political work done in the next three months.
"The protests will continue right throughout the election."
Heather Buchanan, the Navan-based chairwoman of the Save Tara Skryne Valley campaign, said "One of our concerns is that the National Roads Authority is employing archaeologists who only have a year to do their work."
One of the protesters, Debbie Reilly from Navan, said yesterday: "I'm an artist and I've camped on the hill since I was a child.
"I'd draw on the riverbank, and for me this is the source of my inspiration. This road will be so intrusive, there will be a rift in
"In Navan, there's a tradition to get a car on your 18th birthday because the buses are so poor.
"It's not difficult to see this road will not solve the commuter problems."
