We need TV naturally to embrace news and what is happening around us. We also need radio but Liveline this week was a complete sham. Joe with the ego (Bottler)and Williams (the great man of fiction on Irish Gangland). We all know what happened when a prisoner phoned from a cell in Portlaoise. I personally believe RTE have broken the law on this occasion. How can we have a prisoner in Portlaoise taking the airways and making threats.

This is a link to a story published on one of the Women's sites in October 2006,
by a Polish activist and rights campaigner.

She was delighted with the ability of women to work in unity over shared areas
of concern which normally would not be in their political interests, but
the results of globalised economy and cultural debasement had made the interests
of unity pertinent to all the women who worked together.

The image is of campaigners who worked on justice for the dissappeared in
Guatemala, their campaign against debasement is ongoing. read full story / add a comment

The Campaign to Save tara is jubilant at today’s announcement that construction is to be stopped on the proposed route of the M3 through the tara/Skreen Valley. Under the National Monuments Act the archaeologists contracted by the NRA were forced to declare a likely National Monument has been discovered. It had been the Save tara Campaign that first alerted the National Museum to the potential significance of the Liamullen site, which is within 100mts of the Rath Lugh monument, and directly within the path of the proposed motorway. It is known that the Museum immediately contacted the NRA seeking information on the find. The Lismullen site had not been accurately identified during the initial archaeological survey of the route and the discovery of a henge almost 80mts in diameter and comprising of three concentric circles caused surprise to the archaeological contractor and near- apoplexy at the National Roads Authority. read full story / add a comment

A massive henge has been discovered in recent weeks near the Hill of tara. This is a unique site in Ireland and should be preserved intact, as henges are very rare in Ireland. It is, without doubt, a national monument.

Tá Ógra Shinn Féin ag éiliú go dtugtar vóta do pobal na Sé contae ins na toghchán d'Uachtarán na hÉireann. Iarrann Ógra Shinn Féin go mbeidh na toghchán d'uachtarán na hÉireann atá le teacht, na céad toghchán uile-Éireann ó 1918.

Ins na toghchán deireanach toghadh Máire Mhic Giolla Íosa mar Uachtarán na hÉireann. Is as Béal Feirste ó dhúchas í Máire. In ainneoin seo áfach ní raibh a comharsana i mBéal Feirste, ná duine ar bith eile ins na sé contae, in ann vóta a caitheamh ar a son. Tá Ógra Shinn Féin ag iarraidh go mbeidh athrú iomlán ar an scéal seo.
