Two weeks ago, Hugh Mc Laughlin (artist and comic-maker) was handing out little
tara Vigil Leaflets on the streets of Dublin. He was approached by a member of
Dublin City Council Litter Service 'Operatives' and asked to move on or he would be
prosecuted and/or fined under litter laws. He gave out the leaflets and refused to be
bullied. The gardai were called. The Gardai did not prosecute nor did they take his name.
Cos he wasn't doing anything wrong. read full story / add a comment

One of the activists from the Hill of tara vigil camp has sent a message
to activists and people who are in solidarity with the desire of the campaign
to Save tara to support the vigil:

A Legal challenge , today, failed to put a stop to the PPP, and the works
are to begin in earnest in 72 hours. There are possibly some options to challenge
the issue but a lot have been worn out , the vigil campaign is quite small and very
dedicated. They have asked for support in the form of tech for evidence, and solidarity
protests in the next couple of days. read full story / add a comment

A series of photographs of the activity in the Gabhra Valley over the last 6 weeks. The wonderful sites that are being exposed and explored are being prepared for the destruction. Bodies and artefacts are removed from huge sites that are so large that they now back one on the other.
Protests take place each Friday at 3pm on the N3 just after the entrance to tara on the way to Navan in the Gabhra Valley where it meets the Hill of tara.

How can we stop our corrupt governance from destroying our unique heritage that is the Gaelic Celtic Royal City of tara? Nice letters to the corrupt media? Answering Pat Kenny's questions - do you live on tara? By asking Meath Co Co to stop the NRA? By telling everyone that the forced double troll road will not fix the designed transport problem? Protests? Listening to unqualified sham lawyers? Signing petitions? I dont think so - the corrupt governance of this country is steered by the most devious of them all - bad bertie and he only listens to bad bad bush. read full story / add a comment

According to Yahoo News, the first Irish Viking Ship has been found in the Boyne river. This is surely a very important and exciting find.

However given the track record of this government at destroying our heritage, in places like Carrick Mines, tara, and many others, it would be entirely inconsistent of them to preserve this. Surely it should be sold off to the highest bidder at a minimum or broken up and incorporated somehow into chic-furnishings on a set of apartments overlooking the site. read full story / add a comment
