Carrickmines castle (1 Viewer)

Hey there,
Dunno if many people know about this but there was an old (1200ish) castle found in Carrickmines a few years ago and there has been an excavation there until recently. The castle is mostly below ground coz it was leveled by the king of england (or so they say) in 1600. They found loads of cool stuff there, 17 dead bodies, all women, with axe marks in the backs of their heads, wells, mills, villages and moats.
The point is that the NRA (National Roads Authority) own the land and are planning to build a motorway right across it, yay. The excavation isnt nearly finished, the main castle hasnt been dug up and theres people squatting the farmhouse where the castle used to be. I stayed there the last two nights and its really cool, lots of mad people about, interesting characters. They need people around during the day too in case the pigs show up and if you dont want to stay its really worth going out just to take a look, they'll give you a tour if you ask. They want to start having kids and adults in for classes or whatever to learn about the history and about archeology. theres lots going on, building a fort around the shed and putting up shelters and digging toilets!bog and all.
so it's near cabinteely, not out in the bogland or anything, on the route of the no. 63 from fleet st., getting off at glenamuck road.
so go, hang out with the mad hippies/archeologists, they're fun and they need more people to get interested.
over and out

taken from

1. The entire domain and surroundings of Carrickmines Castle is a strictly drug and alcohol free zone.

2. The site of the archaeological excavations is strictly out of bounds. Walking around these excavations can lead to serious damage of the work that has been carried out over the last 24 months.

3. Any litter brought to the site should be taken away.

4. Respect the local residents. Don't park vehicles that obstruct roads or driveways.

5. Keep noise to a minimum particularly late at night. The local residents have lived here all their lives and should not be disturbed by our presence.

6. This is a non-violent protest. Peaceful action is been used to occupy this site. If you cannot behave in an entirely peaceful and non-aggressive manner we ask you to stay away from this site.


Which begs the question why does everything have to turn into an excuse to drink these days ??

Life is Actually Fun if you'd give your brain half a chance to enjoy it without drugs (alcohol) - a few nights a week even ..

Hate Edge!!

Get your straight-edge hate out of our scene, Weeler!

Actually, I'm beginning to think the same in the last few months aswell...I've cut down drinking a lot and I'm doing the same with the dope shiznit...I don't necessarily think there's anything wrong with them, just that they tend to fuck my head up a bit, especially if I'm not feeling too good in the first place. And it's undeniable that they make you apathetic & lazy as fuck (smoke especially). That said, there's times when there's nothing I like more than to spark up a fat one & crack open a beerzo...but I'm getting a bit sick of using drugs like that habitually...not to mention wasting my money on that shit all the time...speaking of which, not much drink or smoke buying recently and I had enough money to send off for lots of good shit this morning -Skitslickers, Despise You, Discordance Axis, Anti-Cimex, Krigshot, Hellnation, Doom, Disclose & lots more all in the post to me -aww yeeah!

Yeah really if anyone can come it would be a great help. They're coming to start clearing the land on Monday so there needs as many people as possible. I know it's late notice but even if people can make it out on Sunday/Monday day or night it could be a help. There's a few contact numbers up on indymedia and i will prolly be there if yis r lost so GET GOING!!!:D
