Back to 'SAVE TARA!' - TaraWatch campaign to save Hill of Tara from the M3 motorway in Ireland

Please support Public Trust Ireland (PTI) calling for a referendum on State trusteeship of natural and built heritage

Thank you for supporting the Save Tara campaign, and trying to protect the Hill of Tara from the M3 motorway. If you believe that there should be a higher level of protection in the Constitution, to protect all national monuments against future developments, then support a new initiative - Public Trust Ireland (PTI) .

Public Trust Ireland (PTI) is an independent, academically-based body, designed to promote public ownership and state trusteeship of Ireland’s natural and cultural resources, through research, information, and education. PTI made submission to the Convention on the Constitution, calling for a strengthening of Economic Social and Cultural (ESC) rights, including the right to natural resources, and cultural heritage. PTI and now supporting the recommendation of the Convention to the Oireachtas, that Economic Social and Cultural (ESC) rights be strengthened in the Constitution, in order to comply with the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR).

PTI is seeking public and cross-party political support for a set of constitutional referenda that would impose a duty of trusteeship of Ireland's natural resources and cultural heritage, under the Public Trust Doctrine, and also give citizens a fundamental right to natural and cultural resources, similar to the one they held under Article 11 of the 1922 Constitution of the Irish Free State.
