Renowned aerial artist John Quigley, who has created similar aerial human images in the Artic and the Amazon, at the hill of Tara

Now for some interesting stuff about ireland.....oh yeah, that they want to destroy it, as we know it, or maybe as i know it and i'm not the only one, its what people do after all, i think it's called 'Human nature'

Well since i havent written much about the interesting stuff about Ireland and since i didnt know much about interesting stuff, i thought i'd be better informed before i woke up on Monday (Thats tomorrow) and i'm running out of time, so too is Tara, its literally the heart of Irealnd before St Patrick came on the scene causing trouble.

They want to build a road through it because to a guy in an office in Dublin looking at a map of Irealnd thinks it's just a load of fields belonged to some old farmers that would rather be drinking Guiness that putting on their welly boots and chasing after a load of heffers in a bog, No, no, no, no, no !!!!

This is the section i like to call 'Interesting things', which you'll find out is true, pay attention and sit up straight

In the 19th century, the Irish Member of Parliament Daniel O'Connell hosted a peaceful political demonstration on Hill of Tara in favour of repeal of the Act of Union which drew over 750,000 people, which indicates the enduring importance of the Hill of Tara.

During the turn of the 20th century the Hill of Tara was excavated by British Israelists who thought that the Irish were part of the Lost Tribes of Israel and that the hill contained the Ark of the Covenant

The most familiar role played by the Hill of Tara in Irish history is as the seat of the kings of Ireland until the 6th century

At one time, it was a capital offense to make a fire within sight of Tara.
