The Preservation Of tara

Shameless Acts Of Hooligans/Thieves
Tara - The Sacred Center
Tara - The Sacred Center

Shame on the lack of moral conscience of Ireland's "government", shame of the lack of moral conscience of the broader population of the good people of Ireland, and shame of the lack of moral conscience of the "leaders" of the European Union (who also will be receiving more words from me shortly)! What is so very important now is that those who are not afraid to use their voice speak out against this travesty which appears to be going ahead, and the impending destruction of the Hill of tara Complex.

The preservation of tara, our Sacred heritage, and our Ancestral memories do not appear to be in the forefront of the minds of these new millionaires. What seems to be important are the tanning salons, the gaming rooms, the fast expensive cars you referred to, dining on food usually seen only in magazines and paying exorbitant prices, and the dream of riches associated with the Celtic Tiger, which is fast becoming more of a living nightmare and hell. When we were last in Ireland in 2006, most of the folks we surveyed (informally of course), weren't even aware of the M-3 motorway construction, and those who did had not formed an opinion.

The fact that oil is "running out" (a manufacture of the World governments I believe) globally is immaterial to most of these good people of Ireland, who appear to only be able to see from one day to the next, trying to wring as much vacuous entertainment and empty joy out of this life that they can. Riots in the streets over the ban of vehicles! Now, that's quite a vision, and one that could easily come to life if the good people are not made aware!! Quite like the general population of the U.S., where SUV/Hummer fever is rampant, even while we are at a crisis stage with oil. Apparent zombies staggering through life with no conscious thought or whim of what the future will hold or bring to our children and grandchildren.

On the matter of John Gormley. From what I understand, he was opposed to the construction of the M-3 motorway prior to his winning the election. His behavior is inexcusable and his reasoning unacceptable for not protecting the Lismullen Henge and other parts of the tara Complex from destruction. I do not believe him when he states that his hands are tied, and that he must allow the decision of Dick Roche to stand. I will, as stated earlier, be drafting a letter to him in the next few days.

The most recent bloody battle, The Easter Rising, seems to have faded from the memory of the good people of Ireland. The heroes who sacrificed during that campaign, during the battle of 1793, and during the hunger strikes in Northern Ireland have long since become ghosts of another time and era. To ask the educators and researchers of the island, those who are generously funded by the good people of Ireland, to stand up and be counted amongst those who advocate education is not without value. We must all stand together to win the island back from those seeking to amass millions of dollars through the greed of these vast and destructive infrastructure schemes.

Yes, the generations in the future will sorely lose out on the beauty and magick of the heart of Ireland, tara, if this road continues. Sure, some of the complex will be left, but the valley will be scarred, the air and water will be polluted, and the Spirit will be left sorrowful. The voices of those in times past will haunt the hillsides and the vales, broken hearted, singing of "The Dew Of Dear tara".

tara is the heartbeat of the island, the Sacred Center, and the source of her spirituality. How unfortunate that the good people of the island would choose to trade that for material possessions and ease. I understand the mundane, as regards making a living. I am a Mother of three and Grandmother of five. I know the basic daily needs, and I know the wants of life as well. I also know that beyond this realm, beyond this thing we call life, is the Spirit, and to me, this is what is vitally important for all. Indeed, may all of the good people of Ireland pay heed to the stories of the Grandmothers and Grandfathers! My Grandparents and Parents told me the stories and history, I told my children the stories and history, and I am one Grandmother who will recant the stories of old to my grandchildren. Hopefully one day they and my children will travel to the land of their Ancestors, and let us pray that they will be able to bask in the glory and wonder that is the Sacredness of Ireland that has been given a reprieve from this destruction.

I stand with all of you, return to your roots now, regain the pride and love of Ireland that is your heritage, find again the magick of the land! Help the good people of Ireland in saving tara, the Gabhra Valley, and the entire island for the future of us all!
