Green Ireland - Submit the UNESCO List Now!

Green Ireland - Campaign to get the Irish Government to sumbit the UNESCO Tentative list before St Patrick's day 2010

Since 2007, we have been patient and responded to all public consultations to have Tara included in the UNESCO Irish World Heritage Tentative list.

Given the worldwide interest in the Tara issue, we are hoping the Minister will give us all something to celebrate on St Patricks Day by submitting the Irish list just a little bit early?

The Minister's secretary envisions it will be in for the April deadline for this year. We hope to ensure that vision becomes reality.


It's been 10 years since our battle for Tara started. Yeats himself a “Save Tara” campaigner in 1929 would be proud. Over the years people, individuals and groups, have kept this issue alive, world bodies such as the Smithsonian at have stood firmly by our side.

John Gormley's secretary envisions it will be in for this year. We want to make this vision a reality.

It is now time for action rather than words. Once more to the breach, my friends!

Since 2007, we have been patient and responded to all public consultations to have Tara included in the UNESCO Irish World Heritage Tentative list.

Given the worldwide interest in the Tara issue, we are hoping the Minister will give us all something to celebrate on St Patricks Day by submitting the Irish list just a little bit early?

That's only 3 weeks earlier than the 2010 deadline for new lists and will give 82% of Irish people (Irish Times Poll) and people of Irish Heritage all around the world something to celebrate.

Email the Minister (minister@environ.ie) and ask him to submit the list a few weeks early in time for St Patrick's day celebrations.

Ask him to put through the landscape legislation before signing off on any new transport projects for Meath and show the Minister you still care. It has been a long road but the flame is still lit.

It's hard when times are stretched consider things so illusive as heritage, but as Sean Lemas, Irish political leader and economic reformer, said “Would the Minister not agree, our heritage is something to be protected at all costs?”

In the light of Ireland debts, the cost of saving our heritage is minor, and it may actually work out to be more cost-effective to save Tara given the amount of traffic guarantee fines we will currently have to pay.
