offsite link Boris to Resign Today Thu Jul 07, 2022 09:55 | Will Jones
Boris Johnson will resign today after Nadhim Zahawi told him to go and another eight ministers quit demanding he accepts reality. Will history now repeat and the Tories install a new, dull, election-losing John Major?

Disinterred Bodies

This week has been a distressing week for those of us who remain faithful to our Ancestors. On Tuesday of this week, August 5th, 2008, many witnessed photos which documented further destruction in the Tara-Skryne Valley, the historical seat of the High Kings of Ireland, and the Sacred Center of the Island. Oh, the Gabhra still flows, her waters now muddied and sullied by the endless pounding of machinery. The earth herself is groaning in agony from the wretchedness of the devastation. like a Mother who's child has been ripped from her womb.

Being fully aware of the scars which have been left in the wake of the M-3 Motorway, I realize there is very little that can be done at this point to go back and repair the damage which has been wrought. However, you and your Ministers are fully capable of coming up with a plan to divert the Motorway away from the Valley immediately.

Roads come and roads go, but our Ancestors were only here once. To pummel the earth beneath which they rested, to bulldoze vast areas and dig up the bones which were resting peacefully, is an act of inhumanity. To have removed cremations, such as the ones at Ardsallagh, to squirrel away remains from Collierstown in plastic bags to unknown sites, well, that is abominable, beyond disgraceful. Shame on you and all involved. It is a bloody wonder that something you could not possibly fathom has not risen up in indignation and outrage, from under the very ground you and your kind have desecrated.

At least, not yet.

This is a photograph taken on the day of protest at Tara. This is the beginnings of the construction of the "crib wall" to "protect" Rath Lugh. Five months after a report told them that remedial work should be carried out asap, they begin - during a deluge. Ah well, its the NRA I suppose. Cannot expect brains there.
Rath Lugh was Two fields away said M. Deevy, January 2007
http://www.savetara.com/articles/2007/011607_agency.html
Of course the road was supposed to be 110m away from the actual Rath, it
is 20m.

Here are the rest of the photos - not taken by me, still can't visit these "sites" - bail conditions of a court case that is now going on 12 months.

It is really good to see that terylene sheeting is being used to protect Rath Lugh from further damage and will prevent land slippage by weathering.

After the sheeting will come a deep layer of clay layer, clamping it into position, followed by soil and then be finally grassed over.

Good engineering & planning by the NRA
