The Turoe Stone (the most important piece of Celtic stone-art in the world)
Did you know that in the name of protecting it, The Irish Government have decided to move The Turoe Stone (the most important piece of Celtic stone-art in the world) from its rural home environment in Turoe to a museum in Galway City?

The Turoe Stone
Monday October 15, 2007 21:14 by Vercingetorix

A petition has been set up for protecting the Turoe Stone in the area where it now stands (i.e. in Turoe): which may well have been the Iron Age Capital of Ireland, and which our "experts" in places like NUI (National University of Ireland) Galway have been keeping deceptively VERY quiet about for several years now, in spite of all the hard archaeological and historical evidence that has been surfacing during the period in question, and which includes at least two new books on the subject (please see http://www.turoeandathenry.com/ for example).

All the better for the planned PPP "N6 Road Project" through the area maybe?

For the PETITION site and some additional information about the Turoe Stone, please go to http://www.petitionspot.com/petitions/TuroeStone .

For outline information on the VAST linear defence system built around the Turoe Stone, which radiated out for many, many miles from the original location of the Turoe Stone, in the Turoe & Knocknadala (Hill of Parliament) area, and which probably is the largest defence system ever built ANYWHERE in Europe by the ancient Celts, please click on http://www.handofhistory.com/ .

It may also have been the most successful defence system the Iron Age Celts ever built, in the sense that it was possibly the main reason the Roman Legions NEVER made any attempt to try and take over Ireland.
