To DUers of Irish heritage: Save the Hill of Tara
One of the most sacred and historically significant sites in Ireland is due to be bulldozed to build a new highway. Please help save the "Irish Stonehenge" from the bulldozers.

From TaraWatch.org:

"Nowhere else in Ireland is there a landscape that can claim the Tuatha de Danann, Celtic Gods and Goddesses, St. Patrick, Daniel O'Connell, Thomas Moore, heroes and High Kings from Fionn MacCumhail
to Brian Boru, an archaeological complex of temples, tombs, enclosures and henges spanning five millennia, and a continuous place at the centre of Irish spiritual, cultural, political and literary history, as part of it's fabric."

Disclaimer: I am not Irish nor Irish-American. But I have lots of friends who are, and friends who are also archaeologists. They are all outraged at the prospect of this site being destroyed.

1. I have signed the petition.
I've never been to Ireland, but my father's side of the family is from Cork and Killarney. I think we must do what we can to preserve the beautiful natural heritage of the country.
