Stonehenge beware…..

The diggers are tearing into the archaeology rich ritual landscape of Tara right now.

The Hill of Tara is an ancient monument complex that dates back to the birth of civilization in Ireland. It has been a place of power since farming first sprung up in Ireland and has been a very significant place for many thousands of years.

This important historical area is threatened RIGHT NOW by the building of a motorway through the Skryne valley. Its foundations will trawl through the fragile archaeological deposits that may give us clues to the past and the founding of this magnificent site.

Despite massive objections from an appalled international community, the Irish Government has chosen to plough ahead with the scheme.
