Can someone who knows the area a little better clarify my ignorance- is the work currently going on on the route to Dublin the road that we're discussing here, or has it been postponed.. finished.....? Anyone give us an 'update' on the tara situation?

This site sort of keeps us up to date with what is happening to Tara. I know it isn't much, but it seems like a case that will drag on for a long long time

I'm with you completely Beli Mawr. Having been there, I wish they'd stay away from this historic place forever.

We have visited the hills of Tara in last October. I am not sure whether the road construction was stopped or whether the plans were changed. But as far as I can remember the road isn't very close to Tara. Tara still is an magical and fascinating place. I add some pictures.

Oh thanks so much for posting the pics!! Those are pretty! yeah- I assumed the road wouldn't be right through the middle or tara, it'd be kind of hard and I can't see the government doing that. Well, i guess it's an excuse to go see it for myself, eh? :lol:

Absolutely a pretty good excuse, Nessie. :wink:
You really should try to make it real. Tara is just amazing - not only the hills itself but also the little chapel and the cemetery in the midst of huge, old trees. A really peaceful place.

P.S. If you wanna see more pics, just let me know. :lol:

Ness see PM.

Kevin you also have been in Tara?
Then you surely agree with me that it is really an enchanting and peaceful place. We had a perfect day in Tara, hopefully I see it again someday. I add some pics of Tara and the east coast of Ireland.

Simi, Thanks again for those pictures ( photos ). Glendalough was one of my favourite places too; I took heaps of photos there. On tour we could only stay there for a couple of hours, but I would have spent the whole day there if I could. And I agree with you about Tara also; It is a beautiful and enchanting place. Being there I felt part of it's history; sounds weird doesn't it ?

Maybe it sounds a bit weird but I agree with you.
You can find a particular charm at these old places. This charm enfolds all Ireland. The beautiful landscape, the history, the kindness of the people.
And I feel a longing for this island I can not explain. Maybe my heart knows why - but my mind can not recognise. But it doesn't matter. All what I have to know, is that I feel indescribably good if I am in Ireland. It's a feeling as I would come home. Is this weird? Maybe! But I don't mind that.
