Tara, Voices From Our Past
07 Nov 2007
Over the past five years there has been considerable controversy regarding construction of the M3 Motorway in County Meath, Ireland, especially in light of the discoveries at Roestown, Lismullin and Soldier Hill. While those finds are extremely significant, they pale in comparison to a more recent discovery at Tara.
A short film by the award winning documentary filmmaker and musician Maireid Sullivan, which is based on the research paper “Orthostat, The Mound of the Hostages" shows that the complexity and importance of The Hill of Tara goes well beyond what we've known about the site for the past few millennia.

The Tara complex is a major part of the cultural heritage of the Irish people, yet it's being destroyed by those in the government who have been entrusted with protecting it. In stark contrast, governments of third world countries are going to great lengths to excavate, restore, preserve and protect their monuments, and prosecute those who injure or deface them.

The following links are to the film and research paper.
