Tara Calling, The Desecration of a Sacred Landscape

By November 23, 2014 at 12:08 pm

Congratulations to Carmel Diviney on the launch of her book Tara Calling, The Desecration of a Sacred Landscape!

Tara, steeped in history and legend, was renowned as the spiritual, cultural and political heart of ancient Ireland. The routing of the M3 Motorway through the Tara Skryne Valley, an archaeologically rich complex comparable to Egypt’s Valley of the Kings in its unique heritage, was condemned by archaeologists and academics internationally, including the World Archaeological Congress 2007.

This book chronicles the campaign against the controversial route and the eventual emergence of on-the-ground protests of Direct Action. Included are media articles providing a timeline of events as well as the political and legal background of the day. It includes eye witness testimonies and interviews with people who took part in Direct Action, those who stood against what Seamus Heaney, Irish Poet and Nobel laureate described as, “the desecration of a sacred landscape”.
