Walk the Line for tara

category international | environment | event notice author Sunday December 30, 2007 14:15author by TaraTaraTara Report this post to the editors

Walk and Talk

New Year's Day 12.30 - Walk to Publicise the Meath Master Plan and World Heritage Park
New Year's Day 08
New Year's Day 08


Hi all,

The Walk will begin at 12.30 midday at 2 starting points both finishing at Kilmessan @3.30.

Route a) Fairyhouse to Kilmessan
Route b) Navan to Kilmessan

Bring good walking shoes, small snack and a good sense of humour as we walk and talk :)

We aim to raise awareness of the viable alternatives ie. Meath master Plan and World Heritage Park which have been presented to the Government.

This is the way forward and a far better alternative to destroying the tara Skreen Valley for the sake of an environmentally and economically unsustainable DOUBE TOLLED ROAD.

Now we need to present it to the PEOPLE and make them aware that there IS a Better way, and one which will benefit All.

So get your hiking shoes on, be there at 12.30 and join us and together we will bring this vision into being.

Many thanks and a Happy 08 to all.

Many thanks to the people who have presented us with an alternative to the ongoing madness at Tara. The Govt.s overall strategy fails miserably in tackling the issue of Climate Change not to mention the mess that is Transport. The Meath Master Plan is Genius and the World Heritage Park would save what is let of our heritage in the area of Tara that they have desecrated.

Does this mean that you are gong to clog country roads with walkers and put their and other road users lives in jeopardy ?

author by Jesus, Mary and Joesphpublication date Sun Dec 30, 2007 18:18author address author phone Report this post to the editors

of course they are love- sure isn't that what its all about- challenging the comfort zones of those
who cannot think for themselves and buy the PR spin of the corrupt state?

We could all wait for the EU case or the eventual tribunal on planning corruption but some of
these issues need exposing now and its a good way to unclog the arteries- you know .. walking.

Happy New Year- sure bring the whip and the drum -we'll work some calories off the terminally fat
and overweight car-users yet.

The majority of the people can and do think for themselves and do not swallow any PR what so ever.

Merely because some people hold an independant point of view and different to that of the Save Tara/Skryne activists does not mean that they have swallowed the State/NRA PR either.

Civilisations build on the ruins of previous civilisations, were that not the case we would be living on rafts out in the Atlantic...

When you travel on a new motorway for example the M1, are you aware of exactly how many Bronze or Iron Age sites lie under that road - No!

Of all the ancient sites that have been discovered along the M3 route, can you tell us people, of how many were anually visited on a regular basis for the purpose of a Pagan ritual ? I would suggest that only Rath Lugh was ever visited and then very infrequently?

The Walk tomorrow to Kilmessin will achieve what ?, an inconvenience for other road users and sore feet for a few fat activists.

Personally I think the independant thinkers are rather tired of reading and hearing about the narrow minded and bigoted views of the Tara activists.

This walk is not about a road, it's about a landscape with the potential to be a park. The Tara landscape.
It's also advertised as an off road walk.
Narrow minded and bigoted? A fitting description for yourself independent.
Are you really Independent?
I don't think so.

12.30 tomorrow. Meet outside the Ardboyne Hotel which is on the left hand side of the road ( coming from Dublin) just before you enter Navan.

Well done everyone who turned up today to walk the line from Navan to Kilmessan. Even the rain held off for us as we enjoyed the fresh air and a nice stroll through the countryside. We followed the old disused railway line as far as it was possible and did the rest of the walk by road. Thebest part of the entertainment was coming across security at a construction site of the M3 near Ardsallagh :) A lone Security Guard got straight on the phone for back up as soon as he saw the Thirteen Intrepid Explorers hovering over the horizon. We were soon joined by a van load curious to see what we were up to with our banners. We didnt bother them and they didnt bother us . Still, they had to have something to do to earn at that overtime didnt they!

Well lets hope they got talking about the Meath Master Plan and World Heritage Park :)

In all due respects, the ‘can’t stand in the way of progress’ argument is rather a lame. Its conclusion is that there is no need for planning, social and environmental impact studies and the like. And in this context it is selfish, short sighted and bigoted.

The importance of the Tara Skreen Valley landscape and complex of sites is how little we know of it! We have little knowledge of site functions, their context, how each site relates to each other, indeed if there are still sites to be discovered. Only after we have understand the sites and their landscape, can we then start to understand the people who lived there. In understanding the people of then, gives us great insight to things today. This is more than Irish history, its European history. But now this is going to be lost before it has a chance to show us what it is.
In the long term the area could offer something as important as Pompeii. But what are you going to get instead? A toll road.

You can’t stand in the way of progress can you?

author by commonerpublication date Wed Jan 02, 2008 15:12author address author phone Report this post to the editors

True progress would be to designate the Tara Landscape as a World Heritage National Park, to create a sustainable transport system within a very short time frame and develop a sustainable development region in the long term.
In this scenario, who would want to stand in the way of progress?
None but a bunch of gangsters.
