    We'll just have another row in 3000 years time when they want to build a skyway over the place and discover an ancient burial ground in the road beneath :)

    Yeah, but people care about our history and heritage so that's why theirs uproar now. No one cares about hippies, so in 3000 years everyone will be glad to mow over their remains.

    The fvck we do!! We care about MONEY in this country and that's all. They'd build the fvcking thing right OVER Tara if it saved a few million and people would stand by and applaud!

  • Registered Users Posts: 22,546 ✭✭✭✭ Dyr


    The army are clearing them out? I'd put me money on the protestors if it comes down to it.


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,654 ✭✭✭ trellheim


    Step over to Military and say that.


  • Banned (with Prison Access) Posts: 8,633 ✭✭✭ darkman2


    lol OP may be right


    http://www.indymedia.ie/article/86665


    but since the army is not up to the task they have had to resort to the fire brigade:p


  • Registered Users Posts: 28,793 ScumLord


    This could end up costing the state millions, what if the protesters shout too much and hurt the military's ears. Or what if a soldier falls over and has a boo boo?

    I thought the Military couldn't be used as a police force.

    a 5 fiver to anyone who can tell me where the road take for the road stops, yesterday the Nra gave out a statement it was 100m from the road and then had to retract it saying that it was only 25m, they never double checked the maps when they were planning the motorway.

    All Out Emergency
    by TaraTaraTara Thu Mar 13, 2008 09:23
    Approx 80 personnel including several Gardai not displaying their numbers have descended on Rath Lugh.

    There are 3 vehicles on the esker and a tractor half way up. This is seriously jeopardising the life of the girl pictured above who is locked into the tunnel by the neck. The Gardai are aware of this and are paying no heed!!!!

    There is also a tractor heavy laden with steel works approaching from the Baronstown side and 22 jeeps have been counted.

    The situatuion is extremely delicate and extremely tense.

    Please go there if you can. Bring video equipment and phone credit. Go Now!!!

    Please spread the word, contact all media, ring the Dept of the Environment, Tansport , Museum all.....

    No coincidence that this is happening before a Court Order was made to stop them. BASTARDS!!!!!

    M3 protestors trapped in tunnel
    Thursday, 13 March 2008 11:57
    A woman who is demonstrating against the M3 roadworks is trapped in a tunnel that protestors dug at Rath Lugh.

    Supporters claim the woman is chained by the neck to a jack and any attempts to try and remove her will cause the tunnel to collapse.

    At the scene fences have been erected to prevent any further incursion by the protestors.

    AdvertisementAround 40 construction workers together with about ten gardaí remain at the scene .

    Following negotiations between the protestors and the Fire Chief it has been agreed that no attempt will be made to try and remove the woman from the tunnel.

    The tense stand off at the scene is continuing and is likely to do so for some hours.

    A number of other protestors have chained themselves to overground obstacles at the scene.


    Meanwhile, the group protesting against the construction of the M3 motorway has asked the High Court for an injunction to stop all work at the Rath Lugh area of the road.

    Peadar O Ceallaigh told Ms Justice Mary Lafoy at the High Court that diggers were using the area as a short cut because they had not been able to get licences to drive over the roads.

    He said the tunnel and the monument were in danger of collapse.

    The case will be back before the court at 2pm.

    Well duh... if you are going to chain yourself by the neck to a tunnel that will collapse if any attempts are made to remove you then you are obviously paying no heed to your own safety so why should the Gardai?!

    Idiots tbh.

    It will just be a waiting game now. But for the safety of the Gardai they would do well to stay back from this tunnel, if it collapses in the meantime, then unlucky. She knows the risks as do her fellow protesters, can't moan if she dies.
