The Campaign to Save Tara is a voluntary group who have come together to raise the issue of the route of the M3 through the Gabhra (Tara-Skryne) Valley during the general election, which is scheduled to take place on May 24th of this year. This body is an amalgam of many disparate groups, some have been involved for a very long time and others have only just joined the campaign – many members of the old Save the TaraSkryne Valley Group, those involved in the Vigil on the Hill since June 2006 and the newer Save Tara Valley Group. The organisation that is run by Vincent Salafia, Tarawatch, has withdrawn from this wider umbrella grouping.

Cairpre, Oscar and the rest of the Fianna are said to be buried in the valley
