Complaints too weak so far?
by W. Finnerty. Mon Aug 28, 2006 10:08 
I'm very pleased to learn that complaints have already been sent to the European Union (and elsewhere) regarding the protection of the Hill of Tara.
However, all complaints, petitions, newspaper pleas, and so on, which I have seen to date - on efforts to protect the Hill of Tara and surrounds - fail completely to show the extremely close link between Brehon Law and the Hill of Tara.
Can anyone explain why this is? - particularly in relation to those petitions and complaints which have been signed by numerous senior academics working in various universities around the world?
The Island of Ireland, in effect, became a very large and very bloody battleground between Brehon Law and Roman Law in the A.D.1100s; and, Brehon Law was eventually "fully decommissioned" in the 1600s (as far as I know). There is probably no event in Irish history which has had a bigger impact on the lives of Irish people?
Brehon Law is not some kind of historical fantasy; and, among other things, I understand there are at the present time several volumes of ancient Brehon Law manuscripts in Oxford University (in England). Further information relating to this point can be found via the following link:
What are these ancient Irish manuscripts doing in Oxford University in England I wonder? - are they just gathering dust possibly? Why are they not being translated into modern versions of the Irish and English languages, and made available to Irish people - so that they can learn more about what is perhaps the most important (and most unique) part of their history and heritage? 
Brehon Law may be - by far - the most important part of Irish culture, might it not?
Complaints and petitions, by themselves, may not be enough to prevent large parts of the "Tara Heritage Complex" from being destroyed? 
Powerful "culture-protection" type arguments, supported by historical facts, might need to be put forward as well? - keeping in mind that 1,000 million Euros have been ear-marked for the M3 Motorway Project apparently? That is a lot of money for people who appear to care little about anything other than money, and the political power it provides them with to bully others into kowtowing to them in all matters.
The crucially important link between "Feis-Teamhrach" (The Great Feast of Tara)" and King Ollamh Fodhla (who gave Ulster its name), and who is the Irish King primarily associated with Brehon Law, can be viewed on Page 53 of the "Annals of Ireland by the Four Masters" (written between 1632 - 1636 A.D.).
As far as I know, most of the large libraries in the Republic of Ireland have copies of the "Annals of Ireland by the Four Masters" in their "Reference" sections. For anyone outside of the Republic of Ireland who might have difficulty finding a copy of Page 53, a scanned copy can be viewed a little over half-way down the page at the following Internet location:
