help save Tara

Tara (Teamhair) in County Meath, Ireland, was the ancient inauguration site of the early Irish Kings. It contains a number of ancient monuments, and, according to tradition, was the seat of the Árd Rí Éireann (High King of Ireland). Archaeologists are actively working on the site and have much work left to do.

Yet the Irish Government now plans to build a highway with a huge interchange at the foot of the Hill of Tara itself. Does this sound like a good idea? I don't think so, and I bet you don't, either.

So go sign the petition to save Tara here! Maybe we can help save this ancient treasure.
