World Heritage Day Forum

Trinity College Dublin

Swift Theatre

Friday, 18th April

4:00pm - 6:00pm

Admission free

ICOMOS - The International Council on Monuments and Sites, is hosting International Day for Monuments and Sites 2008. The theme for this year is "Religious Heritage and Sacred Places" - which is particularly appropriate for the Hill of tara.

The purpose of the TCD event is to launch a fresh international appeal, calling on ICOMOS International to insist that the M3 motorway be rerouted away from the Hill of tara complex, before it is nominated to become a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

A number of speakers will address the announcement by Mr John Gormley, T.D., Minister for the Environment, Heritage and Local Government, on Friday 11th April, that he had retained a member of ICOMOS to review the tara site, for purposes of nomination to the UNESCO list, despite the fact that the M3 is being built through the centre of it.

Legal issues relating to the M3 motorway at tara will be outlined by Frank Callanan, SC, at the World Heritage Day forum, Trinity College Dublin (TCD), on Friday 18th April.

The theme for this year's events is "Religious Heritage and Sacred Places" - which is particularly appropriate for the Hill of tara.

Speakers at the TCD event will include:

- Aideen Ireland, President of the Royal Society of Antiquaries of Ireland

- Dr Sarah Alyn-Stacey, Director of the Centre for Medieval and Renaissance Studies, TCD

- Frank Callanan, SC

- Lisa 'Squeak' Feeney - Member of the Rath Lugh Direct Action Camp. Graduate of TCD.

- Vincent Salafia - of TaraWatch. Graduate of TCD.

All are welcome and admission is free.
