LAST CALL TO SAVE TARA !
SAVE TARA VALLEY AWARENESS MARCH
NAVAN - SATURDAY 4TH NOVEMBER 2006 - 2pm Sharp! MEET @ OLD CIE STATION NAVAN
With the largely unpublicized withdrawal of the last legal obstacle to the M3 Motorway on the 6th October, The Save Tara Skryne Valley Campaign is calling on all those concerned about this national tragedy to attend The Save Tara Valley Awareness March in Navan on Saturday, 4th November at 2.00pm sharp!
Michael D.Higgins, TD gave his full support to the March last week, saying "I believe that this is an appalling decision which will affect not only this generation, but generations to come! There needs to be a change made in legislation to stop decisions being made which will have such an influence on future generations of Irish people. This has important implications not only for the people of Meath, but for people throughout Ireland". Deputy Higgins was responsible for the first Tara Discovery Programme when he was Minister of Arts, Culture and Gaeltacht Affairs.
At this moment in Irish history, never before has it been so important for people to voice their objection to the needless destruction of Ireland's most sacred site, simply to facilitate a motorway which will be of no benefit to the people of Meath. With TWO tolls and inevitably leading into the already badly congested Blanchardstown roundabout, the M3 will bring unspeakable destruction to Ireland's heritage with no relief to the stressed commuter. As part of the M3 a massive interchange will be built at Blundelstown at the foot of the Hill of Tara and this will be floodlit 24
hours a day!
Widespread development is also planned along the route of the Tara/Skryne Valley. The March is also intended to bring attention to the fact that viable alternatives do exist, such as an integrated transport system. Ends.
