Cavan Heritage Battle Goes On

Nulty Quarry Seeks Approval

Cavan quarry company, John Nulty Limited have finally lodged a planning application with Cavan County Council to extend their quarry at Ardkill More mountain, Carrickaboy, five miles south of Cavan town.

Cavan County Council has this week received a planning application from quarry company John Nulty Limited to greatly extend the Ardkill More quarry. This despite the fact that Nultys have already being clearing topsoil from the area involved since last April.
The previous quarry works have already destroyed two hundred yards of the two thousand year old linear earthworks known as the Black Pigs Dyke. If the new extension gets the green light from Cavan Co. Council it could mean the destruction of much more of the listed monument.
Red Branch Heritage and An Taisce are expected to oppose the application.

Location: Nr. Granard, Co. Longford, Leinster, Ireland
Subject: Black Pigs Dyke
Theme: Great Wall of Ireland
Period: Circa 100 - 300 B.C / Iron Age
What Is it? A series of linear Earthworks which stretches with large gaps, from Sligo to Down. The Earthwork is 2.5m wide in places and would perhaps have been 3 m high when built. Named after a folk tale about a magical black pig which rooted up large tracts of land, the intermittent appearance of the Dyke is probably due to the fact that it was designed to enhance natural obstacles such as bog and lake and has also suffered from recent unsympathetic 'land improvement' . . It was possibly erected as a defence system to protect Ulster's land and cattle against marauders from the South.

It was probably built to hinder cattle raids from Connacht, as described in the Táin.

As it is the Black Pig's Dyke is fast disappearing in places without aiding the process by allowing businesses, whatever they may be, to destroy it further.

All over Ireland historic sites are being surreptiously ruined forever, the numbers of which are shameful. Please don't let this be another.
