The article below has been copied from the following Indymedia (Ireland) location: 
Though the text below was written with the "Rossport 5" Group (of public-official abuse victims) mostly in mind, it is believed to also have major implications regarding legal costs relating to the Hill of Tara, and to a number of other "heritage protection" court cases which have taken place in recent years in the Republic of Ireland.   
Aarhus Convention Agreement
by W.Finnerty  Sun Apr 09, 2006 14:21
Like a great many other senior public officials in the Republic of Ireland, Mr Justice Finnegan (President of the High Court) appears to be acting as though he has still not heard anything at all yet about the United Nations Aarhus Convention Agreement - in spite of the fact that the Republic of Ireland signed this EXTREMELY important legal document on June 25th 1998 (see ).
Article 3.8 of the Aarhus Convention Agreement (under GENERAL PROVISIONS) reads as follows:
"Each Party shall ensure that persons exercising their rights in conformity with the provisions of this Convention shall not be penalized, persecuted or harassed in any way for their involvement. This provision shall not affect the powers of national courts to award reasonable costs in judicial proceedings."
Article 9.5 (under ACCESS TO JUSTICE) states:
"In order to further the effectiveness of the provisions of this article, each Party shall ensure that information is provided to the public on access to administrative and judicial review procedures and shall consider the establishment of appropriate assistance mechanisms to remove or reduce financial and other barriers to access to justice."
Numerous completely futile efforts have been made to date to raise the Aarhus Convention Agreement issue with public officials (of all levels) in the Republic of Ireland, including the attempt of November 6th 2004 shown at the following address:
Most amazing of all perhaps, is that Senator Jim Higgins MEP has related the following in his e-mail dated November 30, 2004: 
"I have contacted the Taoiseach Mr. Bertie Ahern querying the reason that the Aarhus Convention Agreement has not been laid before Dail Eireann in compliance of Article 29.5.1 of the constitution (of the Republic of Ireland)." The full context of this quote by Senator Higgins can be seen at
