Email To Attorney General
Mr Michael McDowell
(dated March 5th 2001)

 
From: William Finnerty

To: Attorney General (Mr Michael McDowell)

Subject: CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION (Re: Archaeology of the Turoe area).

Dear Mr. McDowell,

I would be very grateful to you if you could please make sure that the Turoe area archaeological information at the private www address immediately below is known to Judge Michael Reilly (referred to in the copy of the March 2nd 2001 email further down):
http://homepage.eircom.net/~williamfinnerty/kj1.htm

I have very recently been assured by Dr. Jordan (referred to in the emails below) that "all the politicians" have now been informed about the potential importance of the information contained in his notes (which are available for your reference at the above private Internet page address). However, I have no reason at present to believe that Judge Michael Reilly knows about it; and it is because I have no contact information for Judge Reilly that I am now contacting you with a request to pass the information to him please (if he is not already aware of it).

Main page
(Dr. Kieran Jordan's Notes)

Although I have not yet had a chance to explain to Dr. Jordan, Fr. T. O'Connor's research has special significance for me, and for the many others around the world who share the family name of "Finnerty" (and its several variations) - which are corruptions of the Irish language words "fionn sneactha".

According to ancient histories of Ireland (such as the Annals of the Four Masters written in the 1600's), some of our "Fionn-Sneachta" ancestors were Celtic kings of Ireland it seems (at least 3 I think, and possibly many more).

My own private research (based largely so far on the Annals of the Four Masters), suggests that the father of King Finachta Fionn-Sneachta (1277 - 1257 B.C.) was King Ollamh Fodhla: from whose name the word "Ulster" is derived. If you look at Ptolemy's map of Ireland (there is a link from Dr. Jordan's notes at the web page address given above), you will see that there are two places connected with Celtic royalty named "Regia": one in the Ulster area, and one in the Turoe area (near New Inn) - which is just 2 miles or so from the area earmarked as a possible site for the proposed Connacht superdump.

Even though they would already know about Dr. Jordan's information apparently, I am nevertheless copying this email to a few others: simply as a "belt and braces" precaution for my own peace of mind.

It would be much appreciated if you could acknowledge receipt of this email please.

Please note that I intend to forward a copy of this email later today to Dr. Jordan, and to Mr.Tom V***** (also referred to below).

To cover for the possibility of email delivery problems, I intend to send a printed copy of this email to you through the registered post later this afternoon.

Sincerely,

Mr. W. Finnerty.

Subject: Galway County Council (public consultation forms)

Dear Kieran and Tom,

I was in Galway yesterday and I called into the County Council offices on Prospect Hill.

They are giving out maps of the proposed N6 road: which clearly shows the "emerging preferred route" going straight through Knocknadala. (The path of the new road actually blocks out a large part of the word "Knocknadala" on the map underneath it.)

In addition to the maps, GCC are also providing an accompanying "public consultation" forms for people to fill in. These forms are clearly designed to invite views and comments from the public. 

I'm wondering if Galway County Council are aware of Fr. Tom O' Connor's findings regarding Knocknadala?

If not, is someone going to tell them?

There is also a deadline of sorts on the consultation forms: "Preferably before 16th March 2001" .

I've sent some earlier emails to you.  As I'm not sure if they have been received, I've copied them below.

Subject: Cross (New Inn) & Judge Reilly rulings.

Dear Tom and Kieran,

After sending my email to you yesterday (copied below), I noticed an article on page 2 of this week's Connacht Tribune newspaper (dated March 2nd 2001) which relates to the inspection of the three sites earmarked for possible superdump usage in East Galway.

One section from the Tribune page 2 article states: "Judge Michael Reilly adjourned until Mountbellew Court today (Thursday) his decision on whether Galway County Council should be allowed enter lands at Cross, New Inn, for the same purpose."  (i.e. to carry out tests.)

A second section from the Tribune page 2 article states: "In relation to the New Inn case, Judge Reilly had adjourned giving his ruling until yesterday in order to hear further evidence from archaeologists,  etc..".

Similarly to item 7) in my email below referring to the waste management vote on March 9th, I am now wondering if Judge Reilly and the archaeologists referred to are aware of Fr. Tom O' Connor's 40 year archaeological research work relating to the Turoe/Cross area?

If not, is someone going to tell them?

Changing the subject slightly, I think I found an internet copy of the Ptolemy map of Ireland referred to by Fr. Tom.  Please note that I have now added in a link (which leads to the map) on the notes at the private web page immediately below:
http://homepage.eircom.net/~williamfinnerty/kj1.htm 

Looking forward to receiving answers to the Judge Reilly situation (as it relates to Fr. Tom's information). The situation makes me a bit nervous because I'm very conscious of the fact that time is running out (and may have actually now run out as far as yesterday's planned decision in Mountbellow Court goes).  There is still time left regarding the March 9th vote: but not much.

Kind regards,

Billy.

Subject: Re: Cross (New Inn) & GCC vote on Waste Management Plan (on March 9th 2001).

Tom,

After you left yesterday, I replied to an email from Kieran (which I copied to you).  I will assume you (and Kieran) have received it.

Yesterday I was stuck for time when I sent the above mentioned email, and could not say anything regarding the points made below:

1) As far as I know, there is an extremely important vote to take place on March 9th (i.e. one week tomorrow) by Galway County Council involving the superdump.

2) If GCC vote in favour of accepting the government Waste Management Plan, then the likelihood of having a superdump for Connacht installed at Cross/Turoe area is pretty high (I believe): allowing for the fairly recent road works carried out at Cross.

3) To me, a huge superdump for the whole of Connacht in the Turoe area would be around 100 times worse than a motorway. This is mostly because I feel that a superdump would be extremely demeaning to the memory of the ancient Celts: particularly if Turoe was once a royal site of some kind (as almost certainly seems to me to be the case).

4) My inquiries strongly suggest (and in fact I believe it is common knowledge) that all Fine Gael Galway County Councillors will vote to have the Waste Management Plan torn up and replaced with the scheme I described to you yesterday - which does not involve a superdump at Cross (or anywhere else).

5) As I also mentioned to you yesterday, very dangerous uncertainties apparently exist at present as to whether a simple majority, or a two-thirds majority, is required for the acceptance of the Waste Management Plan by GCC on March 9th.  If it turns out to be a simple majority, there is (as I understand it) a very real chance that the government plan (which includes the superdump for Connacht idea) will be accepted - and implemented.

6) Fr. Tom O' Connor's information might (as I see it) tip the balance in favour of rejecting the Fianna Fail party's Waste Management Plan: if it turns out that a simple majority is all that is required to have the plan accepted - as the FF party are apparently claiming to be the case.  (The superdump danger is not nearly so great if a two-thirds majority is required: simply because the FF party are unlikely it seems to be able to get enough support from outside their own party.)

7) Do the Fine Gael party know about Fr. Tom's information?  If not, is someone going to tell them?

I am copying this to Kieran.

Looking forward to receiving answers to the questions raised in 7) above. In the meantime, I will be looking at the points you have set out in your email.

Kind regards,

Billy
