Light Up the Hills for Tara - October 31!

On the night of October 31 - All Hallow's Eve or Samhuin -please LIGHT A FIRE if you can, on the nearest hill to you, in solidarity with those who will be lighting their fires on Tara's Hill. Let us create a global 'chain of light' that hopefully will inspire those in power to rethink and re-route the M3 motorway.

The Harp that once
Thro' Tara's Hall
The soul of music shed
Now hangs as mute
On Tara's wall
As if that soul
were fled.
So sleeps the pride
Of former days
So glorious thrill is o'er

And hearts that once
Beat high for praise
Now feel that pulse
No more.

No more to chiefs
And ladies bright,
The harp
Of Tara swells
The cord alone
That breaks at night
Its tale of ruin tells

This freedom now
So seldom wakes
The only throb she gives
Is when some heart
Indignant breaks,
To show that still
- Thomas Moore 1779-1852 -

Preserve the Heritage before it's too late!
For the Love of Tara
