message from Muireann   , 14/12/08

Hi all, for information, Edel Bhreathnach and I recorded 4 programmes on
Tara today, they are in Irish and will go out on Radio na Gaeltachta at
about 8pm on Friday evenings beginning on the 16th January. They were
made indoors and the producer is Cathal Portéir of RTE. Each programme
is 25 minutes long.


Tara -  a World Heritage Site ...?

Secondly a, short submission will be made on Tara as a WHS by a number
of us, myself included, by request. If people have any points I'll pass
them onto the person organising the submission. This has to be done by
the end of January.
Information here.

There has been quite a debate raging about the merits of this since I
first got involved in 2003/4. Whether it should be a WHS or not. At this
stage it's probably best that it is nominated but one of the points that
is important is to ensure that access is not restricted and secondly
that the Valley and not just the Hill is nominated. Lets get what we can
out of Gormley ... before this government disappears into oblivion.
