===   ===   ===


Many thanks for providing me with some of your time when we met last Saturday evening, and congratulations on your recent election victory: which I believe I might have forgotten to say anything about to you last Saturday.

My main concern about the present whereabouts of the Iron Age Turoe Stone is that The Office of Public Works has not formally placed any "official sign" of any kind at Turoe Pet Farm for the purpose of informing the general-public that the Turoe Stone has been taken away by the Office of Public Works (OPW) last year, according to what Mary Corcoran (owner of the Turoe Pet Farm) related to me last week when I called in to see the Turoe Stone.

Last week, I also noticed there were three, or possibly four, large "Office of Public Works" signs carrying information (for the general-public) about the Turoe Stone, which are very prominently displayed at the entrance to Turoe Pet Farm: but, none of which say anything about the fact that the Turoe Stone is not located at the Turoe Pet Farm at the present time, or about the fact that the Office of Public Works apparently removed it last year from The Turoe Pet Farm, or, why it was removed (which Mary Corcoran, referred to above, related to me was for cleaning, she believes).

Also, the "Internet Search Engine Listing" at the www location immediately below, provides no "official OPW" information either (at the present time at least) about last year's removal of the Turoe Stone from the Turoe Pet Farm:
"The Turoe Stone has been removed from Turoe Pet Farm, Office of Public Works ..."

As indicated towards the end of the "March 12th 2000 publication" at the www address immediately below, I have long believed that the Turoe Stone is a potential target for art-thieves:

This is because the Turoe Stone is (as I understand it) the best know, and arguably the most important -- by far perhaps? -- piece of ancient Celtic stone-art in the world; and, as such, possibly "priceless" (as far as lawful trading transactions are concerned that is)?

Related www Search Engine Listing:
"The Turoe Stone is the best known and most important piece of ancient Celtic stone-art in the world ..."

Also, and as I mentioned to Mary Corcoran (referred to above) during my visit to Turoe Pet Farm last week, and with due regard for the vast global spread of "Celtic genes" among a large section of the world's population (possibly a factor, to some considerable extent at least, in as many as one-third to one-half perhaps, of the seven billion or so people now living), I have long believed that there exists the potential for significantly large sums of money to be made (all the way throughout the foreseeable future of humanity), from the "steady" global sale of replicas of the Turoe Stone.

As you may already know, through the application of modern "Internet Age" 3D laser type technologies, electronically interfaced with modern electronically-controlled machine tools, it is not at all difficult these days to create moulds of the highest quality (in a very wide range of sizes) that could be used to mass-produce high quality miniature replicas of the Turoe Stone, which could be made from a wide variety of materials: including, for example, precious metals such as silver, gold, and platinum and so on: in addition of course to "life-sized" (and larger) replicas in stone, concrete, and suchlike. Similarly, with respect to the Castlestrange Stone, which, as you probably already know, is a very close Iron Age "relative" of the Turoe Stone, located (for well over 2,000 years now apparently) on the "Roscommon bank" of the River Suck, twenty miles or so ("as the crow flies") to the north of Ballinasloe Town. (More information on the Castlestrange Stone can be found via the following www link: )

Additional information relating to (some of the) "local community efforts" made during recent years to protect the Turoe Stone, and the huge number of ancient heritage sites surrounding it --  i.e. efforts made by people living in and around the Parish of New Inn and Bullaun (in East County Galway), which is known to some hurling enthusiasts as "Sarsfield's Country" -- can be found via the following set-of-four www links:

1) Archaeological Notes on Ancient Heritage Sites Surrounding the Turoe Stone, by Dr Kieran Jordan:

You may wish to note that scanned copies of a set of five "registered-letter" Post Office receipts, connected with correspondence sent to former Republic of Ireland President  Mary McAleese on March 5th 2001 can be viewed towards the bottom of the www page address immediately above.

2) Protected Monuments, and Super Dump Plans (by Galway County Council), for the The Turoe Stone Area:

Scanned copies of another (entirely different to those referred to at "1" just above) set of five registered-letter Post Office receipts, connected with a letter sent to former Republic of Ireland Prime Minister Bertie Ahern on December 29th 2000, can also be viewed at the www address immediately above.

3) Petition to European Union relating to the Routing of a "PPP" Motorway Toll-Road though the Turoe Area:

The text of the Petition, EU Reference Number: Petition 1018/2003, can be viewed at:

4) July 13th 2003 Launch of Book on the Ancient Heritage Sites surrounding the Turoe Stone:

The book referred to at the www address immediately above was a very hurriedly produced, and very heavily edited, version of Fr Tom O'Connor's Book titled: Hand of History - Burden of Pseudo-History

Allowing for what you told me last Saturday about the "educational" connections of recently elected MEP (Member of the European Parliament) Brian Hayes to the Garbally area of East Galway, I am copying this e-mail to him.

Also, and although the contents of the e-mail at the www address just below are mostly about the recent launch of the "Banking Bailout Inquiry", which was sent (by coincidence) just a few hours before I met you (for the first time) last Saturday, to the Garbally Class of 1958 - 1963, some further information on the Turoe Stone can be found via the "Turoe" links in the "Cc" address section of the e-mail in question:

In conclusion, my hope is that you will be able to inform me, before too long hopefully, that the Office of Public Works has placed an official "Office of Public Works" sign at Turoe Pet Farm which contains some kind of brief official explanation relating to the fact that Turoe Stone was removed last year from Turoe Pet Farm.

Later today I will place a full copy of this e-mail at the following www location:

Kind regards,

William (Billy) Finnerty.

The Turoe Stone, Celts, First Masters of Europe ...

  "It appears that in the case of the Turoe Stone the pre-Christian Celts raised the strength, sophistication, and complexity of their spiritual abstractions and symbolism to the highest level that they ever used in their stone art; and, in so doing, they may (in a way similar to the later situation regarding the Book of Kells), have given to the world one of the finest examples of abstract stone art ever produced. Of all the decorated stones created by the pre-Christian Celts, the Turoe Stone is by far the best known in the world."

Which of the two  "political systems"  will  "the people"  of the world end up with?






















The Future of Politics and Law in the Internet Age

 (or totalitarian rule) is a political system where the state recognizes no limits to its authority and strives to regulate every aspect of public and private life wherever feasible."

 "Constitutionalism   is descriptive of a complicated concept, deeply imbedded in historical experience, which subjects the officials who exercise governmental powers to the limitations of a higher law. Constitutionalism proclaims the desirability of the rule of law (based on constitutional law, and laws connected with the Charter of the United Nations, and the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights for example)  as opposed to rule by the arbitrary judgment or mere fiat of public officials…. Throughout the literature dealing with modern public law and the foundations of statecraft the central element of the concept of constitutionalism is that in political society government officials are not free to do anything they please in any manner they choose; they are bound to observe both the limitations on power and the procedures which are set out in the supreme, constitutional law of the community. It may therefore be said that the touchstone of constitutionalism is the concept of limited government under a higher law."

Please note that, for technical reasons beyond my control, the dozen or so "Internet Hyperlinks" provided in the "Related Open News Topics" section below will appear as "dead text" in this "Indymedia (Ireland)" comment. However, the original "live working" versions of these hyperlinks can be found (and used) in the edition of the message-text at the www address provided above; and, they were included in this morning's e-mail to the United Nations because, between them, they seem (to me) to provide a pretty good indication/"feel" of just how MASSIVE, VARIED, WIDESPREAD, and DEEPLY ENTRENCHED, the global "government corruption, crime, cover-ups, bullying, and impunity" problem really is at the present time: and, most important of all perhaps, I think they also, as a set, supply a tangible "handle" (of sorts) on the very slimy, very extensive, and often very blurred "DENIAL (genuine and/or pretend) MINDSET PROBLEM", which continues to so powerfully, and frequently INVISIBLY, and often from "way behind the scenes", to "fuel and drive" the whole accelerating global phenomenon of "government corruption, crime, cover-ups, bullying, and impunity". Has anything really changed fundamentally among the arrogant/ignorant/stupid "ruling elites" (i.e. the "human tin-gods" who are trying to "play GOD" and making complete fools of themselves in the process), I often find myself asking myself, since the days (in the 1400s AD) of the "Borgias Pope Family" in Holy Rome: "The Original Crime Family of The Vatican", as they have been labelled by some?'

'A bit like other aspects of the universe itself perhaps, it may be that this particularly nasty MINDSET "type social problem" (as I see it), in very large part a human-brain "software problem" I suspect, which I have long viewed as a major threat for "humanity as a whole", and maybe even for the whole of "Life on Earth" possibly -- when and if the constantly-lurking risk, above and below the surface of the Earth (particularly in the oceans of our World), of "the makings" of a  "Hell on Earth" Thermonuclear World War Three   is taken into account -- is a problem that is half-invisibly expanding outwards (and inwards as well at the same time in its particular case!!) at something approaching the speed of light? Or at least the speed of sound perhaps, and with much of the credit for the "expansion in all directions" due to the bankster owned/controlled MSM (Main Stream Media).'
