The locals now are sickened
And all gather now to view,
The devastation wreaked upon
Their sacred fort Rath Lugh.
It’s ground disturbed and trees cut down,
They dug up its stones and sods.

They evoked the wrath of the Gods.
A new motorway is badly needed,
But this is not the way,
To cross burial grounds and Sacred mounds
For this new M3 Motorway.
Now stop this desecration
Or catastrophes may loom,
Also respect your workers
Dont send them to their doom.
Ignore these superstitions
And perhaps that day you’ll rue.
You excavated the outer circle
Of this ancient fort Rath Lugh.

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!
