thehiker BS: Petition: Save Ireland's cultural heritage (47) RE: BS: Petition: Save Ireland's cultural herita 01 Dec 04

I think that a true reflection of Irelands cultural heritage is to be found in the fact that there has been uproar regarding the closure of Bewley's Café on Dublin's Grafton street.The vast majority of Ireland's population could not tell you if asked, where Tara is situated,not to mind have the first clue as to it's historical significance.It is a pity that ordinary Irish people don't have a greater interest in archeological heritage but I suppose one hole in the ground looks very much like another.But when you have suffered the dreadful condition of the Irish road network that was, then the occasional missed archeoligical dig is a small price to pay for progress.
To quote from a Mary Black recording "We'll never see what lies ahead if we keep on looking back".
Re Guest I dont think the lack of puncuation makes some of the points any less valid.
