 " Hi,
I've posted a story on politics.ie, which gives the full story, with links, etc. It might be a handy one for keeping this issue alive> We just have to keep the comments rolling. The site gets a lot of views.
Please think of other sites that would be suitable for this story.
http://www.politics.ie/viewtopic.php?f=88&t=36502
By the way, I am not condoning the shameful use of politics.ie by the Libertas crew, for the Lisbon debate, even though I'm thrilled at the No vote increase. A real shocker for old Dick Roche, and nobody trusts him.

Thanks,
Vincent "

more Visionnary work from  Terry Tuit at SacredIreland about the Henge at Lismullin and how it might be restored


  SACRED IRELAND  

Tara, the spiritual, archeological and mythical capital of Ireland.

Below is a view of the road scar covering Lismullin Henge, Rath Lugh and more.

Watch the fade in of Lismullin Henge and help us create the Park, first digitally and then in reality.

The seeds have been sown in the hearts of many people.  It's not too late to turn this road scar into a Park.

If you listening to todays pat kenny show you'll hear
how the meath county council used aggressive and toxic spray on miles of hedgerows in meath on behalf of the NRA and seriously damaged them, if not killed them in effort to get rid of noxious weeds,(moving of lots of soil during road building would have increased the risk of spread of noxious weeds) but imagine the damaged to the wildlife water and birds etc, a botanist was on who said they used a hammer to crack a nut. They had on the guy from MCC who was denying there was a problem with this, the NRA said it was up to the dept of enviro to monitor how it was carried out and the dept of enviro said it was up to the NRA...

the fact that it was the same guys that brought you m3 through Tara was mentioned on the show...

Facebook - Bebo - Myspace etc   - and all other kinds of networking   ... yes please ~~~

  •  " Following on from the success of the facebook Causes application, which already has over 2,500 members, TaraWatch is utilising the Causes application which has now been installed on myspace, to further the campaign to save the Hill of Tara archaeological complex from the M3 motorway.

    If you support efforts to save the Hill of Tara from the Hill of Tara, you are invited to join the new SAVE TARA myspace cause, which was launched in the last week.

    We already have over 250 members and currently we are ranked:

    - 2nd among small Public Advocacy causes in new members in the past week
    - 4th among small Public Advocacy causes in new members in the past month

    See: http://www.causes.com/myspace/causes/71127?recruiter_id...16545

    The myspace Cause app is not as functional yet, as the facebook equivalent, and does not allow you to email all members, but it is still a great awareness tool. More features are promised though.

    The facebook cause is located at:
    http://apps.facebook.com/causes/827?recruiter_id=6916545

    - We will be using these apps to promote the new Tara UNESCO/ICOMOS petition, which will be launched on Wed 8 June, at the ICOMOS Ireland AGM, being held at at Royal Institute of Architects in Ireland, 8 Merrion Square, Dublin 2.
