Temporary preservation order at Tara

Tuesday, 2 October 2007 10:23
http://www.rte. ie/news/2007/ 1002/tara. html

The Minister for the Environment, John Gormley, has signed a temporary
preservation order on a national monument known as Rath Lugh in the
Tara/Skryne valley.

People opposing the route of the motorway through the valley say work
on the project has damaged the monument, a claim that has been disputed
by the National Roads Authority and the Department of the Environment.

The national monument at Rath Lugh lies 2.5km from the Hill of Tara.
The fort is also close to the other national monument at Lismullen.

AdvertisementMr Gormley ordered an assessment following concerns about
damage to the monument and the placement of the motorway 20m closer to
the site.

The assessment concluded it was not under threat from the road works
but was under threat from the dense undergrowth and forest on top of
it. Some of this scrub had been cleared as part of the M3 project.

Both Coillte, which owns the land, and the NRA, have been informed that
the temporary preservation order has been issued to prevent any further
work taking place at or near the site.

The move has been welcomed by those opposing the route of the motorway,
who have said they had warned that Rath Lugh would be damaged by the
M3.

"Rath Laegaire [Rath Laery], situated south of Rath Righ, was so called from Laegaire, king of Ireland in St. Patrick's time, by whom, no doubt, it was erected. It is about 300 feet in diameter, and was surrounded by two great rings or ramparts, of which one is still very well marked, and the other can be partially traced. Laegaire was buried in the south-east rampart of this rath, fully armed and standing up in the grave, with his face towards the south as if fighting against his enemies, the Leinster men. (See chap. xxvii., sect. 3, farther on.)"

The above text has come from http://www.libraryireland.com/SocialHistoryAncientIrela...7.php and, as some will already know, it seems to have been written around 1908 by Patrick Weston Joyce LL.D. (Doctor of Laws), who was President of the Royal Society of Antiquaries of Ireland from 1906 to 1908.

The reason I believe the "two" heritage sites in question (Rath Lugh and Rath Laegaire) MIGHT (?) be one and the same, relates to the contents of the two images provided below.

The original copies of the two images below can be found at the following addresses:

First image: http://www.libraryireland.com/SocialHistoryAncientIrela...7.php (Circa 1908)
and
Second image: http://dublinstreams.blogspot.com/2007_08_05_archive.html (Friday, 10 August 2007).

Assuming the "two" are the same, my hope is that this information may help all those who are trying to protect what we now call "Rath Lugh", particularly those people who are at the present time standing guard at the site.

Thought for Today : "A people that have forgotten their heritage, are a people who have lost faith in themselves." (Winston Churchill)
