tara Landscape - past, present, and soon

category national | history and heritage | opinion/analysis author Sunday September 02, 2007 17:12author by Dee Report this post to the editors

How tara has come to this I do not understand and do not accept. Stop the destruction now. Begin the World Heritage Park now.

I am angered that the tara Landscape is just any patch o grass to people who will never have enough money in their own pockets. I am angered that the people of Meath have been long neglected and lied to. I am angered that the EU agreements and judgments are being ignored. I am angered to see the man-handling of protesters who are only trying to save an inheritance that has been saved for millenia only to be raped by a population that likes to consider themselves the most educated and civilized in the course of history.

For a road

My thanks to the protesters, the campaigners, and those who have persevered to save the Gabhra valley cannot be adequately expressed. Your work is not just a reflection of your own beliefs but those of many around the world.

In the uk they are trying to perseve and return historic landscapes....

"On 11 May 2004, the 12-week Public Inquiry into the Highways Agency’s proposals for the A303 at Stonehenge ended.

The National Trust supports the objective of a road tunnel to remove the visual intrusion and noise associated with the A303, helping to re-unite the Stones with the rich historic landscape surrounding them and restoring Stonehenge to a place of tranquillity.

However, at the Public Inquiry we objected to the detailed proposals and are unconvinced that the proposed 2.1km bored tunnel for the A303 adequately fulfils this objective and safeguards the World Heritage Site’s significance and special spirit of place.

At the Inquiry, we presented evidence to show that far from delivering the declared objectives of the scheme, the proposed 2.1km tunnel compromised them and that this could be avoided by lengthening the tunnel to at least 2.9km. "


you would think other wealthy modern countries would learn from this.

I just arrived back home from spending two days In the camps on the Hill of Tara and Rath Lugh. I was shocked when I saw`the destruction that has been done to Rath Lugh as part of the road-construction scheme. But the fight is far from over and lost. A victory through a combination of direct and legal action still is a very strong possibility.
Today we had a joint meeting on the Hill between TaraWatch, Campaign to save Tara, and the various vigil and direct action groups from the tipi and from Rath Lugh. The atmosphere was extremely posiitve , and so was the outcome of the joint meeting. TaraWatch proposed a closer co-operation between the groups on the upcoming legal challenge. The proposal enjoyed the support of all people present at the meeting.

To clarify - from Save Tara Yahoo group:

Campaign to Save Tara had its weekly meeting on the Hill today. Some
members of Tarawatch were on the Hill, they wanted to attend and speak
about the legal challenge launched on Wednesday.
The Campaign agreed to give the background to the case and then
Tarawatch were given time to outline their point of view. They offered
to have their legal team contact and help the legal team working with
the litigant, Michael Canney. It was agreed that this offer would be
conveyed to Michael by a member of CST who would then pass it onto the
lawyers. This is a matter for them only as CST is not taking the case.
The matter of cooperation between the two groups was mentioned but not
The Tarawatch members then left to allow CST to continue with their
usual meeting.
