Protecting the Hill of Tara

A visiting friend and I were on our way to see "Kicking a Dead Horse" at the Abbey Theatre. Walking from Tara along the quays, we somehow timed it perfectly to see a protest march crossing over the O'Connell Bridge. They were calling for the Taoiseach to halt construction of the controversial M3 motorway through the ancient Hill of Tara. Bravo them!


  1. My question, loud and often to anyone who will listen, is why hasn't it been rerouted, particularly now that we have a "Green" environment minister.

    Conspiracy theories anyone?

  2. Sorry I haven't developed my conspiracy theory mind yet. Have to go to those classes.
