"Temporary Preservation Order"
by W. Finnerty. Tue Oct 02, 2007 14:25 
Without wishing to be disrespectful to anybody, it nevertheless seems to me that the people of the world with Irish heritage have just been thrown a few TINY crumbs from the "Master's Table" - at least that is how I would view what RTE has described as "a temporary preservation order on a national monument known as Rath Lugh in the Tara/Skryne valley" (full RTE article at ). 
What would be significant (in my view) is if Mr John Gormley TD (Green Party Leader & Republic of Ireland Minister for Environment, Heritage and Local Government) took steps to have the constitutionality of our "National Monuments (Amendment) Act 2004" properly checked: without ANY further ado or unnecessary delay, and with due regard for the "historical" situation relating to this matter which is outlined at .
Last Friday, an effort was made (by e-mail) to draw Mr Gormley's attention to the very disturbing relationship between "unconstitutional legislation", and, the kind of "government-driven tyranny" many of us have all too often observed in recent years in the Republic of Ireland: in connection with environmental situations like Tara (PPP M3 Motorway), Rossport (Shell Oil), Turoe (PPP Road), Kilconnell (National Toll Roads "Super Dump") and several other similar situations; and, not forgetting of course the ongoing DEAFENING SILENCE regarding the genuinely democratic (i.e. anti-tyrannous) "United Nations Aarhus Convention Agreement" ( ) which the Republic of Ireland signed in June 1998, and which our Government has STILL not "laid before Dail Eireann", as Article 29.5.1 of "Bunreacht na hEireann" (Constitution of the Republic of Ireland) very clearly requires. 
A copy of last Friday's e-mail to Minister Gormley, which was sent to several other senior politicians and lawyers as well, can be viewed at .  
The facilities for checking doubtful legislation (i.e. legislation which might be unconstitutional and consequently unlawful) in the Republic of Ireland can be viewed at
"Gerry Hogan, senior counsel for Mr Salafia, claimed the legislation used to push through the project (i.e. the Tara M3 PPP Toll Road project) was unconstitutional."
This very revealing comment from Republic of Ireland constitutional law expert Dr Gerard Hogan (Fellow of Trinity College Dublin) has been taken from a Daily Telegraph article (dated January 14th 2006, which is over 20 months ago now please note); and, the full article can be viewed at .
