The NRA has announced plans to run the proposed Slane bypass 500 metres from the world heritage site, Newgrange.
A bypass around Slane is desparately needed, but to even countenance a bypass so close to Newgrange beggars belief.
Coming just after the proposal to run the Dublin orbital route close to Tara, which already has the N3 through its valley, is it possible for the NRA to show any more contempt for Ireland's archaeology and environment?
It makes my blood boil.
