there is a huge amount of other stuff going on , Tarawatch are persuing a Unesco challenge

as are SaveTara who are also coordinating a letterwriting campaign to TDs ,  detailing how much money it would save to stop the M3 now and use the environmentally friendly Meath Master Plan instead

I will try to summarise it all ... but ...it is complicated , best from the relevant websites  
even better the Yahoo groups associated with the sites ...
  ... ... but anyway , the issue is far from dead
if anything , the changing economic situation is bringing it back to life ....

 - there are court cases and other things - oh , funding has been secured for another Feis Teamrach and if its anything like last years it will be brillant

and a belated report from the thing at the Giants Ring , here , on the 8th


it was beautiful - the weather was astonishing , the sun lifting the frost off the grass into a warm haze and although walking around the top of the ring you can see for counties in every direction , and out to sea too
inside it is sheltered like a nest
the moon and sun were both in the sky
and it was lovely anyway - but at one minute to midday , Ursula arrived with her harp - 
we lit candles inside the dolmen  - read some poems and Ursula played Raglan Road and other things  At one point the music became really strange and I could hear it resonating through the rocks of the dolmen . I was leaning my head against the rock in the warm sun and had my eyes shut so I didnt realise she had stopped actually playing the harp and that even though there wasnt any breeze , the strings were just playing by themselves

it was wonderful
Ursula says that just happens sometimes
but I have never heard anything like it , it was astonishing and I am enchanted  

but also we realised that though we were amazingly lucky with the weather - and that one of the people there had a harp and a voice like an angel

that it was a good thing to do and a good place to be anyway - regardless - it would have been okay if it had been raining , or if none of us had had any talent - it would still have been good

and it doesnt really need anyone to organise anything

doesnt need a heap of people - just as many as can be there
all it absolutely needs is someone willing to go into the dolmen and clean it up and clear out the shit - which was what Colette was doing while I was wandering around and talking to trees in the morning - I didnt realise till after

anyway , it was great ; )  and we will somehow be back next year for midday on the 8th january

    some pictures will be on the TBU 29 page - here soon
    also some explantion about why the eighth

 Hi all,

Here is the link to a new video by Madam K. We stayed up until 2am last night after a hard day in court and MK with a broken leg but I know you will really appreciate the effort :) This was made with only 3 short pieces of footage!

Madam K has 50 more hours of unseen footage which we will be working on to get more Tara propganda out there. When I say "we " by the way
I really mean Madam K with me just learning lol
