Tara and the Hot Air Balloons

category national | history and heritage | opinion/analysis author Thursday January 24, 2008 10:19author by Terry Report this post to the editors

Meath, Heritage Capital of Ireland? Balloon is Full of Hot Air in more ways than one.
Would bifocals help?
Would bifocals help?

'Meath, Heritage Capital of Ireland' is the boast on the Hot Air Balloon that has appeared (once again) on the front page of the Irish Times 22/08/08. The balloon was featured on the front page of the Irsih Times in March 2007 but at that time the boast was facing the camera for all to read.
Shortly after that time a graphic was created but not too many got to see it. It was sent to the Irish Times but for some inexplicable reason, they failed to print it! There is still time for a reversal of part of the destruction of the Tara Landscape. A situation in California was reveresed when conservationists won a case against developers who had advanced their work to a similar level as we see currently at Tara. The developers were made to restore the landscape as near as possilbe to its original condition.
There is a better alternative for Tara, it's just not widely acknowledged. See:

The Irish Times comment was a joke but perhaps ye didn't get it........ anyway they can't upset too many of their advertisers
BTW, there's no copyright infringement and I don't use microsoft.
If you think it's poorly executed perhaps ye'd like to do better for Tara.
Spare us from trolls
