ATTENTION ALL: PUBLIC MEETING ABOUT THE
DESTRUCTION OF THE HILL OF Tara
SUNDAY MARCH 9, 4PM
CARRICK-ON-SHANNON, Co. LEITRIM
Numerous ancient significant and unique historical and archaeological
sites have already been destroyed by the construction of the M3
motorway including many ancient burial sites possibly from the last
Battle of the Fianna.
The spiritual heart of Ireland, the very core of early Irish history,
mythology and sovereignty is disappearing forever under a motorway's
concrete and the development that will undoubtedly follow. "Tara is,
because of its associations, probably the most consecrated spot in
Ireland, and its destruction will leave many bitter memories behind"
(Douglas Hyde & W. B. Yeats)
The World Monuments Fund listed the Tara Valley among the hundred
most endangered sites in the world.
The European Commission has issued warnings to the Irish government
because of illegalities in continuing with the M3.
Your heritage is being destroyed, irreplaceable
Irish and world heritage. Our ancestors are being dug up.
Things are now at a critical stage.
People power is needed immediately!
Come to the meeting to learn more.
