Tara campaigners brand Oireachtas committee 'sham'

02/02/2005 - 10:03:19

Campaigners have accused the Oireachtas transport committee of ignoring 2,000 submissions from the public opposing plans to build a motorway near the Hill of Tara in Co Meath.

The Save Tara-Skryne Valley group said it had delivered the letters to the committee following an advertisement seeking the views of the public.

However, it said none of the 2,000 signatories had been invited back to make a further submission or presentation.

Save Tara-Skryne Valley claimed this showed the transport committee's hearings into the plans to build the M3 motorway alongside the Hill of Tara were "a sham".

The campaign group wants the proposed motorway re-routed away from the area, which is rich in archaeological significance.
