Support the call for a full prosecution of those who destroy our heritage. About 35,000 ring fort sites are currently identifiable in the Irish landscape – they are clearly marked on Ordnance Survey 6“ maps.

Of these, only about 250 ring forts have so far been subjected to archaeological excavation. How many we retain protected and preserved is up to us. Write letters to Gormley in support of the call from the Friends of the Irish Environment to bear the full weight of the law down upon the people responsible for this destruction.

Dear Prime Minister Cowen,

Over the course of the past three (3) years, I've written you, Mr. Gormley, the members of Dáil Éireann, the Meath County Council, archaeologists at NUI Galway, UC Dublin, UC Cork, The Heritage Council, The Discovery Programme and the OPW on numerous occasions regarding my research paper, 'Orthostat, the Mound of the Hostages'.

http://www.knowth.com/tara-pdf.htm

The purpose for doing so was to convince The Heritage Council, The Discovery Programme & OPW to complete the geo-physical mapping of tara, which I have no doubt will confirm the hypothesis set forth in my paper, that the symbols carved on Orthostat L2 within the Mound of the Hostages, constitute a map of the Hill of tara, as it existed during the Neolithic Age. ( ca. 3200 BC)

The response I received from The Discovery Programme was that "no one here is compet read full story / add a comment

The notion is as absurd as it is reflective on how cravenly this Junior coalition partners will act do to stay in power.
The Greens are not the tail that wags the dog; they are the illegitimate pup which it might have been wiser - in political terms - to have put down the moment he was seen to have been overly frisky

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
