Hill of Tara - Round Table - Meeting One

Jonathan Swift Theatre - Trinity College Dublin

Tues, 24 March 2009 7.30 pm - 9.00 pm.

Admission free - All welcome

This is the first meeting of the The Hill of Tara Round Table, a problem-solving
initiative, aimed at finding a mutually beneficial solution to the Hill of Tara
/ M3 motorway problem.

There will be a focus on the UNESCO World Heritage Site nomination of the Hill
of Tara, as well as the public consultation currently being conducted by the
Department of the Environment, Heritage, and Local Government, on Ireland’s List
of Tentative UNESCO Sites.

There will also be lectures on the law of the human right to culture and the
protection of cultural heritage sites in Ireland, in order to stimulate debate
on the value of Tara, and cultural sites.

All stakeholders, such a heritage and environmental groups, community groups,
historians and archaeologists, political parties and others interested in the
Hill of Tara / M3 issue, are encouraged to participate in what will be a very
challenging process - to find a solution for the M3 problem at Tara.
