Fairy Trees Clean-up

Hill of Tara, 27 July 2014

Sincere thanks to everyone who showed up for the community clean up of the twin Fairy trees at Tara.

It was a slow start with heavy rain hampering people’s arrival but soon we had about 30 people all working together to free the trees from a build up over recent years of items that have been leading to damage and rot.  Some of the items removed included condoms, tampons, other sanitary ware, chewing gum, wire, rope, electrical cord, rubber bands, paracord, handcuffs, heavy rags and many plastic items.

The area around the trees was also cleaned-up and when we were leaving and walking down the Hill, items people had thoughtlessly discarded were also removed.

Thanks also to RTE Radio, LMFM, Spin FM and the Irish Examiner who helped publicise the event as well as raise awareness of our ancient traditions.
