Emailed our good friend Gary from Halcrow Barry as is it now three weeks so they should have a decision on the T1 Service Station near Tara. Also asked whether...
Just want to say a heartfelt thanks to everyone who gave up their Thursday/Friday to either post letters or send them to Carmel to post. It was really appreciated and heartening to see a lot of silent members come forward.
Carmel keeps an “eye like a hawk” on happenings in Tara and people around the area catch the few balls she misses. In this case a T1 Service Station positioned within the archaeological area.
Thanks especially to people who live near Tara whose ever vigilance meant we were able to inform all the other prime stakeholder groups such An Taisce, Connor Newman etc. before the cut off for consultation.
We’ll continue to keep you informed and trying to get Meath infrastructure placed where it allows development, (if it isn’t on my tombstone already) “North of Navan, South of Dunshaughlin, West of Killmessan and East of Skryne”
For any of you who still want to support the TSPG position that sire 4a and 4b are unacceptable as they break the Government’s promise of no new infrastructure along the M3 between Dunshaughlin and Navan town and they’ll cost us another fortune in archaeology costs that could be better spent on Navan hospital.
The deadline is the 3/5th Nov (not completely clear) by post so would possibly miss it.
But you can probably send a supporting email or even phone simply saying you support the position that T1 service stations do not belong near the HillofTara on the M3 between Dunshaughlin and Navan

The Tara Skryne Valley is a beautiful area to visit and it holds a special place as the cultural centre of Irish heritage and history.
If you are out and about in the valley and you see something that concerns you or you are curious about e.g. surveying, diggers etc, please let us know so we can investigate.
It may be something that we're already aware of but on the other hand, it may not, so the sooner we're advised of any activities the better.
We appreciate your support. Thank you!
