New Archaeological Guidelines

VIA Brian Dolan’s informative Blog – Seandalaiocht (wordpress won’t allow me to use a fada):

New archaeological guidelines have just been launched by the Minister for the Environment, John Gormley. They relate to development by the Irish Concrete Federation as well as Eirgrid and ESB Networks. Online versions are available from here.

Launching the guidelines on June 25th last, Minister for the Environment John Gormley said the organisations involved had shown a strong commitment to the conservation of archaeology in their plans and to an overall approach that is sustainable and sensitive to Ireland’s unique heritage.

    Wow. If Minister Gormless ever wanted to show how out of touch he was, he couldn’t top that ludicrous comment… “an approach that is sustainable”? MY ARSE. Feck, that man needs a good kicking.

    Time to resurrect the only Irish politician who ever gave a damn about the Irish cultural heritage:

    Come back CJH! You’re country needs you!

    CJH – A strangely dichotomous legacy! There’s no doubt about his impact on the cultural heritage sector! See here for other aspects of his legacy.

    In fairness, the new guidelines/codes of practice are being put in place with regards to impending infrastructure (in the cases of Eirgrid and ESB Networks certainly) and unlike some of the critics, I’d be of the opinion that this is timely and necessary…
