The following images were taken December 31st, 2006. They show the pathway for the M3 motorway having been cleared through part of the Tara / Skryne Valley, at Rath Lugh. Other wooded areas are still intact, but it is feared works will resume tomorrow, New Years Day. Peaceful demonstrations at the sites will occur daily, beginning Monday morning. For full set of images go to http://www.tarawatch.org
Large trees cleared from the bottom of Rath Lugh, a national monument, and defensive fort to Tara, on the northern slope of Skryne. There is no indcation that the site will be excavated. If it was to be. excavated, then would they not have cleared it a year and a half ago? Also a new area being worked on today, just behind Lismullen. There are still wooded areas remaining between Rath Lugh and Blundelstown, which will be the location of daily demonstrations beginning New Year’s Day.
