Bones are for Burying

Most interesting column by Sarah Carey in last week's Irish Times re the fate of human remains disturbed on an ongoing basis during our building boom. A very sensible and sensitive piece: Read it HERE

Very fine article.

Dignity for the dead is important for the living.

The NRA angle is also interesting. That body is making a huge contribution to archeology at the moment.

The whole "sacred ground" angle is a complicated one which has resonances in my own family. I am very glad to see the more inclusive approach in modern times.
