ADDRESSES

Few more pointers:
 
Most letters to the press require an address and phone #..  They will not print your letter without it
 
The word count for most is, 200 max.  As far as I'm aware.  Some papers have a slightly larger word max - 250, 300.  But best to stick within 200 to ensure printability.  Any letter that is 400 or more - best to break it down into two separate letters. 
 
Ok, that it.  Let's get those letters out there.
 
Kate.

If anyone is writing letters regarding the recent developments here are the contact lists again. Even if you only have time to forward the open letter to the UN/UNESCO and the MEPs letter to a few random contacts it will be spreading the word.The newspaper contact list is the one originally posted by Kate Russell with a few 'failed' ones taken out and I have added some more Irish ones at the end.

LETTER TO EUROPEAN UNION

 

Have received an e-mail from Kathys office enclosing this the text of  the covering explanatory note to go with the MEPs letter.

As Kathy says- allow the public to see the letter. Only two papers  have printed it in Ireland and The Irish Post in UK.
We need to send it to Political Parties and local press and press in
USA etc.....its up to you all....Pat; ------

To Whom It May Concern,

Today further destruction will occur of the ancient amphitheatre at  Lismullen.
I would like further attention on the issue in the hope that we can  still save what is left  of this important archaeological monument.

The following letter was drawn up to obtain attention on the European
level. In one day I was able to collect these signatures in the European Parliament by
Irish and other  European members of Parliament who were outraged at the usage of EU
funds for the  destruction of European heritage.

There was a great willingness to support the campaigns to save the  Tara-Skryne valley.
In order to focus the urgency of the situation, I would ask you to  allow the public to
see this letter.
Below are the signatures of the MEPs who have showed their support by
signing it.

Thank you for your co-operation at this critical moment.

Kathy Sinnott,
MEP for Ireland South.

----------------------------------------------------------

The Tara landscape is one of Ireland's and Europe's most precious
historical archaeological sites which is currently in the process of
being destroyed to facilitate the construction of a motorway.
The European Commission has warned the Irish government that its
plans to build the M3 four-lane motorway through the archaeologically
rich Tara-Skryne valley are illegal within European law. The
commission is taking proceedings against the Irish government.
The landscape of Tara was this year placed on the World Monuments
Fund of most endangered sites.
We are also aware of a joint letter signed internationally by over
300 academics stating that the royal estate of Tara is not just a
central part of Irish heritage but is significant on a world heritage
scale.
We, the undersigned Members of The European Parliament, are alarmed
at the Irish government's destruction in July 2007 of the large early
medieval settlement site at Baronstown in the Tara-Skryne valley.
This important archaeological site was demolished by motorway
construction workers in the middle of the night.
We also express our deep concern about the future of the Celtic
temple at Lismullen, a site with national monument status which is
also planned to be demolished by the Irish government. Urgent action
is needed to urge the Irish government to prevent the destruction of
more of our common European heritage. As was the case at Baronstown,
and as is planned for Lismullen, thousands of years of our shared
European culture can be wiped out in a few hours and, once gone, can
never be replaced.
Given that the path of the planned M3 is so rich in archaeological
monuments, we strongly urge the Irish government to alter the current
motorway route and to choose from the other available routes and
viable options for the M3 motorway, balancing progress with
conservation.
It is of the utmost importance that steps be taken to prevent
destruction of any further ancient monuments which are part of our
shared European heritage.
The Tara landscape should be preserved intact as the European
cultural and heritage treasure that it so clearly is.
