We are beginning to plan a visit to Ireland, our first, and in looking at different websites I see there is a highway being built that will cut through the sites in Tara's valley, in spite of protests from around the world and recent discoveries of even larger ancient complexes.
Is there still time to visit these landscapes or is the valley a highway construction site now?
(Such a pity, destroying the nation's heritage so some commuters can get to Dublin faster. Guess what, it doesn't work anyway---based on US & especially NJ experience, it is really "build it & they will come"--build a big highway, wreck the countryside, and you just get a more clogged up big highway some years down the road. It encourages developers to put more housing and shopping malls farther out from the city, and cover up more of the land with concrete.)
