Carrowmore Judgment 10/3/89
My wife and I (retired) have visited most of Ireland's ancient cultural sites, including Carrowmore. I am an Irish citizen as well and a naturalised American and a subscriber to The Irish Times. It was heart-warming to read about these private individuals and public servants putting the aesthetically valuable ground above the temporal expediency of disposal of refuse. We sincerely hope this case will set a precedent for the protection of these time-honoured and hallowed places.
