tara HARPERS TO GATHER AT DÁIL TO SAVE tara
3.00 PM Saturday, 22nd September, 2007
On Saturday 22nd September 2007 at 3 p.m. the harpers of Ireland will gather at Dáil Éireann to demonstrate publicly the strength of their opposition to the destruction of historic cultural sites at the tara/Skryne Valley as a result of the current route of the M3 motorway.
The harpers will assemble with their harps along Kildare Street, and will submit a petition to Minister John Gormley insisting he implement alternatives to the continued destruction which is taking place.Ireland is unique in having a musical instrument, the harp, as its national emblem. This indicates the primacy of the harp in Irish culture. The sites currently under threat are inextricably linked with the harping and bardic traditions for more than 2,500 years.
tara was the gathering place for thousands of harpers to 142 kings, and the harp was an integral part of the ancient Irish parliament at tara.
The harp has been used in the coat of arms of Ireland since 1270 and is the symbol of the Irish State today. It is found in the seals of the President, Taoiseach, Tánaiste, Government Ministers, on State currency and is the insignia of the Irish Law Courts.
Harpers will also be joined by Hothouse Flowers singer, Liam O Maonlai, who recently recorded a save tara song.
Harper events will also take place in NY, Chicago, and Los Angeles outside Irish Consulates at the same time as the Dublin protest. In New York, Irish Pulitzer Prize-winning poet, Paul Muldoon will join Irish Grammy Award-winning singer Susan McKeown, along with many other artists.

HUMAN HARP AERIAL PHOTO OF HILL OF tara
3.00PM, Sunday, 23 September
Irish actor/director, Stuart Townsend will join his friend John Quigley in taking an aerial photograph of the Hill of tara, with hundreds of demonstrators making a harp symbol on Sunday 23rd.
People are required to help create this aerial art event at tara and those who wish to participate are asked to meet at the car park at 3pm. Participants are requested to wear white or a very light colour to contrast with the green grass. It is advisable to bring rain gear to sit or lie on. Between 500-1000 people are needed to spell out the words SAVE tara VALLEY and also the outline of a harp on the hill.
John Quigley is internationally renowned for his environmental messages and images spelt out by human bodies and photographed from the air. The Sunday Times said: "Political protest has come a long way from banners and megaphones. These days if people have a message for the world, they form huge patterns that can be seen from the air - using human beings".
Among his striking images are SOS spelt by 35 people on an iceberg in Antarctica to bring attention to rising sea levels. Another photograph shows 600 people beside London's Eye spelling out STOP CLIMATE CHAOS.
This is a unique opportunity for members of the public to participate in the making of an iconic historical image of tara, and express their opposition to the M3 route.
