Samhain Fires and Great Banquet
This year we will be stageing a large scale Samhain Fire Event followed by a Great Banquet/ Party to revitalise the Ancient Customs of Our Land.
In Ancient times, tara was well associated with the lighting of Fires at this time and on its surrounding hills.
When the fires were lit, from hill to hill the message spread throughout the land, with fires being lit on every high place in responce. You may research this at your leisure but for the purpose of this email I am making a brief summary, which I hope will ignite your interest and your passion.
This custom has continued on a small scale over the years by those who wish to keep our Ancient ways alive but THIS year we hope to make this event National and International to make our message clear,, that we Care about tara and our Heritage and that we wish to protect it from the destruction heaved upon it by a short sighted, corrupt Government.
We wish to highlight the alternatives, the Meath Master Plan and re route the road from such a delicate Archaeoligical Landscape.
Interested parties have commited to joining us in Solidarity for tara from Canada and the US so far. We have a few weeks to make this as widely known as possible and require YOUR help to do so.. The idea of fires lit for tara especially here in Ireland in each county, let alone the World and being photographed from space......(Google Earth) is awe inspiring.
We need YOU to make this happen.
On Oct 31st Fires will be lit at tara, Uisneach, Tlachtga and all over Ireland in responce to our call for people to unite in Solidarity.
Be pro active and join us on a hill near you!
On Sat Nov 3rd a mighty get together will take place at the Great Banqueting Hall on the Hill of tara - as in times of old. We are calling on Poets, Musicians (acoustic) Re-enactors, Artists, Speakers to come together to make this a spectacular. We call on all those that CARE about what is happening in our land and to the HERITAGE we pass on to future generations, to join us.
