Save Tara

Tara (Teamhair) in Co. Meath, Ireland, was the ancient inauguration site of the early Irish Kings. It is connected from earliest times across the Gabhra valley with its sister, the Hill of Skryne. It is through this same valley that the Irish Government now plans to build a motorway with a huge interchange at the foot of the Hill of Tara itself.

July 2007: Bulldozers were sent in in the middle of the night to destroy the ancient burial ground at Baronstown in the Tara-Skryne valley, a site independent archaeologists claim was of national monument status. The site was completely destroyed.
