What a pity that this magazine is not on-line. You will have to buy a physical copy of the article
I am aware of the fact that the authors of the article have some history with the subject of their "journalistic" expose.
It is a pity that they neglected to outline that fact in their article.
Again I am saddened to see people who are actually on the same side (they say) in regard to the outcome of the Newgrange issue, beginning their campaign to save Newgrange by attempt to scupper the only viable campaign that exists at present which wants the road near Newgrange stopped, that is as far as I know it is the only one.
I am glad that the person who posted the article above is well versed in Irish enough to add the fada to the "a" in Ruadhán. :)
Michael Smith is veering towards a Bruce Arnold level of journalistic impartiality in his efforts to smear Salafia.
I would ask both he an Ruadhán to outline how their work with An Taisce has helped save National Monuments in the last decade.
having been on the sidelines of both the Carrickmines campaign and the Tara campaign I can predict that the efforts of The Village in this matter will hasten the arrival of the bulldozers.
If Newgragne is to be saved then all involved will have to put their egos, bruised and otherwise into second place.
The article led me to assume that Smith and McEoin, in light of their history with the subject of the article, are unhappy that they did not think of starting a Newgrange campaign and now are trying to wrong foot the one that exists.
the authors might ponder the words of Iggy Pop..Oh baby what a place3 to be
in the service of the bourgeoisie"
Of course as they are both rather bourgeois should we be surprised?
