This made me really mad, and I don't even live in Ireland.

Turns out the Meath County Council, the NRA (National Roads Authority), and the Irish Government want to build the M3 highway through The Hill of Tara National Monument.

Damn the bastids! Sounds like it's happening kinda soon. Thought you all might wanna know, especially those that live on that side of the big pond.

Not at all confident that the petition will work. Any thoughts? Suggestions?

Another example of idiotic bureaucratic nonsense. I wouldn't be surprised half of them don't even have a clue about the historical significance, even to people in other parts of the world. I signed the petition, hope it helps.

Signed -- #34748 or thereabout.
I can't believe they'd expect to get away without
doing thorough rescue archaeology in the area of
immediate impact along with the fullest possible protection of the entire environment.
But I can believe they might try.
Stories are abundant...
...including in the US, I am sorry to say.

I don't care if I have to fly over to bloody Ireland with a claymore- they'll not get this!

-Danny

and every time I play with passion I start breaking strings,
and my voice cracks when I sing from my heart
guess that's the price I've got to pay to know that I'm alive
this melody is tearing me apart

Signer #34789, here.

You cannot emphasize enough the importance of preserving historic sites. New clues to the past are tunring up all the time, even in urban areas such as Mexico City for example. What we cannot say is how many more remain undiscovered, or how manny have already been destroyed over the years.

May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.


Signed the petition as # 34793.

I can only hope that the historical significance of this site is not lost in the name of progress.
