Here is the TSV on Sunday. We are told that destruction will not happen in this valley anymore, we are told that our heritage is safe but my walk yesterday shows that things have simply got worse.
Please become involved and stop the rape of our old green land. It is reaching appoint that soon it will be too late. We look set to lose all our old mysterious, wild and fallow places.

This year on The Hill of Tara we will be celebrating Bealtaine as never before. We have picked 4 places over the hill and will be processing to each part with people joined by candle bearers trailing garlands of coloured ribbon and flowers. One candle barer will have a representation of the Silver apple of the Moon, the other candle bearer will have a representation of the Golden apple of the Sun. read full story / add a comment

Since 2007, we have been patient and responded to all public consultations to have Tara included in the UNESCO Irish World Heritage Tentative list.

Given the worldwide interest in the Tara issue, we are hoping the Minister will give us all something to celebrate on St Patricks Day by submitting the Irish list just a little bit early?

The Minister's secretary envisions it will be in for the April deadline for this year. We hope to ensure that vision becomes reality. read full story / add a comment

If Ms de Burca's allegations are to be believed as written her unbridled personal column in today's Irish Times, it would seem that not only have the Greens lost their moral compass ; they have buried it under a host of erstwhile worthy principles.
In these circumstances t'would be well were the Green's to bury this current arrangement of their party system and try to reform themselves rigorously before they attempt to resurrect themselves , with any credibility. read full story / add a comment

Cowen seems more beaten by the day. The easy clichéd sound bites gone. He appears hunched, shuffling; or frozen in fright like the deer in the head lamp, He has inherited a terrible legacy , but one which he contributed to its making in very substantial manner.The game is up Like Brown in the UK - he too is unlucky, unpopular, lingering in from day to day, never knowing the moment to go to the country. read full story / add a comment

This weekend saw the annual Ken Saro Wiwa memorial weekend being held in Erris, Co Mayo. This was the 14th such memorial weekend, and is held in memory of the Ogoni leader who was hung along with 8 other men because of their opposition to Shell. The weekend was organised as Sr Majella McCarron, who told the assembled crowd during the weekend of how she had worked closely with Saro Wiwa for 18 months while she was in Ogoniland and continued to communicate with him up until the time he was detained and subsequently hung. read full story / add a comment

Matt Schwoebel wanted to take statements from protesters objecting to the construction of the M3 motorway through the Hill of Tara.
He is drafting a complaint to the UN Commission on Human Rights about the way the government has handled objections and treated those who made them. But when he arrived at Dublin Airport, officers from the Garda National Immigration Bureau informed him he would not be allowed into the country. read full story / add a comment

Last week a consortium of three companies bought a Sellafield site with a view to a 2016 expansion of
UK nuclear energy provision, this emanates from the *Entente Formidable* fiscal deal between the Heir
to Slitherin' Gordon Brown (pal of Alistair Campbell , currently being investigated for Provence parties
and expenses and best matey of Toxic Blair, who really had to go and is not getting Europe BTW) and
the Gallic Shrimp Premier Sarkozy.

Blundelstwon interchange, with LOR route psssing just north

For years now, we have been reading about plans for the Leinster Orbital Route (LOR) or Dublin Outer Orbital Route (DOOR). Earlier this year, the NRA published a Feasibility Report from 2007, which shows route of the LOR passing along the side of the Hill of Tara. Notably, the route goes about 1km north of the Blundelstown Interchange, between the N3 and M3 motorway. However, last week Meath County Councillors were told to freeze planning on a 2km corridor on either side of the route. So, it is possible the route will pass directly through the Blundelstown Interchange, the Hill of Tara complex and the proposed UNESCO World Heritage Site. In fact, it appears that this was the plan all along, and that the route has been chosen before the public consultation even begins. read full story / add a comment
