It’s a little darker under the trees than the last time I was here and the colors of Autumn have started there march through the leaves at Rath Lugh. This hill here was never put on an ordnance survey map and the name has shifted and been shifted until it now means only a small monument which may soon disappear. It can be seen from everywhere in the valley, it has been here throughout all of Tara’s history yet details about it are sketchy and it appears only briefly in ancients writings. One of the monuments on its roof has been temporary preserved but which one is unsure. This is after years of planning a road around it, destroying a part of it and then trying to protect it. Due to the advance of the M3 everything in the valley has been documented, mapped and numbered except this hill and now its woods, monuments, graves and spring are snared and encircled by a speculator driven, badly planned and unwanted road.

The October 31st holiday that we today know as Halloween has strong roots in paganism and is closely connected with worship of the Enemy of this world, Satan. It is a holiday that generally glorifies the dark things of this world, rather than the light of Jesus Christ, The Truth.

RTÉ has announced a programme in its Hidden History series making controversial claims about IRA sectarianism during the War of independence. This is how RTE is currently publicising it:

Guns and Neighbours: The Killings at Coolacrease
“The bloody tale of a bitter land dispute, involving a family of Protestant farmers in County Offaly, which comes to a deadly conclusion during the War of Independence. Featuring interviews with descendants of the men who carried out the killings, this portrait of a forgotten atrocity features substantial newspaper archive research, IRA witness statements and military documents from the period.”

"To endanger such a place is a symptom of the greed, corruption and
disrespect being shown for nature, people and our environment.
The solution to this controversy is to re-route 7 km of the double-
tolled Motorway, but it seems that vested interests in this area have
been preventing the consideration of any alternatives. " read full story / add a comment

The Irish Government is building a four-lane motorway only 1 km from the main site of The Hill of Tara however the whole land around the main hill is of archeological interest, historical interest and spiritual interest. In July 2007 bulldozers came in the middle of the night (possibly to avoid the protestors, speculation but I can't see any excuse for using bulldozers in the middle of the night) destroying an ancient burial ground at Baronstown in the Tara-Skryne valley. Independent archaeologists claimed this site was of national monument status! The site was entirely devastated. read full story / add a comment
