Hill of Tara Update

Filed under: Historic Preservation,Ireland — John Maass @ 7:32 am

Just as most folks in the know suspected, the Hill of Tara area in Ireland is loaded with history–under the ground.  So it should come as no surprise when the idiots building a major highway right next to the site found evidence of something “the size of several football fields and is a circular structure used possibly for ceremonies in ancient times.”

Historians objected to its route past an area “which they view as a treasure trove of archaeological finds and Ireland’s equivalent of the Egyptian Valley of the Dead.”

More from the BBC…….

  1. Shocked to learn that the M3 is trying cascade the Hill of Tara. Every celt (even pict) in countries across the world should be sad and disappointed that even a concept and decision such as this could ever happen. I applaud those ignited by indignation and who have also taken appropriate action in the fight to stop this plan. We must be proactive on this issue to stop the M3 and reroute it less sensitive place. Ms. McGhan
