the Vigil

A fire was lit a year ago at the Summer Solstice and has been tended ever since .


The Vigil Website has not been updated recently - hopefully soon will be -- but the Vigil people ARE most definitely still there ...   
and going out every day to peacefully stop the earthmoving equipment from destroying more of the sites 

But they desperately need more people as those there are strong and determined  and wonderful people - but at the edge of exhaustion -

also food , firewood , cameras , simcards , rechargable batteries , waterproofs , wellingtons , tarpaulins ,  clean dry socks , phone credits , money for petrol  etc etc

                                 But it is a wonderful , magical and inspiring place to be


Carmel and Amy have set up a Paypal donation account  - giving directactiontosavetara@gmail.com   as the payee - this absolutely  DOES go straight to the people on the Vigil and is DESperately needed

The Vigil phone number -   086-1758557

  - which is 0035386-1758557 from outside the Republic of Ireland     


Tara Solidarity Vigil
We are a non-hierarchical peoples' solidarity vigil, here in support of local people and all individuals and groups in the campaigns to Save Tara. We are adamant in our non-affiliation with any particular political or religious parties but welcome any friends of Tara to the sacred Vigil Fire, which has been burning continuously since the Summer Solstice, 21st of June 2006.
