Irish Sympathy with America
A correspondent of the Ohio State Journal furnishes the following
report from a local paper of an enthusiastic demonstration in West
Meath county, Ireland.
The most important demonstration which has taken place of late
years in Ireland, was the Great Mass Meeting held in Mulingar to-day,
at which the pronouncement of the county West Meath and surrounding
counties, was made upon the civil war which now rages in America.
The meeting was convened in response to a requisition which,
in number of signatures and respectability of requisitionists has
not been paralleled in this country.
The object of the meeting was to express sympathy with the Federal
Americans, and deprecate any interference of the London Parliament
in the recognition of the Confederates.
The consequence likely to result from such an imposing demonstration,
evidently caused considerable annoyance and apprehension to Government,
whose fears were made to intermeddle and overawe the people from
responding to the call made upon them.
Upward of 500 of the constabulary were drafted into the county
and distributed over the various districts, and on the eve of the
detachments were dispatched from Dublin.
The meeting was held in Main street, the ample space of which
was filled to its utmost extent. Every district in the adjoining
counties contributed its quota to swell the numbers, and every class
was represented on the occasion.
The farmers from the most distant parts attended, and in many
instances they entered the town in procession, consisting both of
pedestrians and mounted men.
The clergy of the Catholic Church gave their countenance and
support to the proceedings, evincing a warm and heartfelt interest
in their issue.
The attendance numbered between 25,000 and 35,000 and was so
vast that it went over the bounds of the place of meeting and several
thousand persons were unable to obtain room.
The greatest enthusiasm was exhibited on the part of the whole
assemblage. Resolutions of sympathy with the United States were
passed by acclamation.
The immense crowd cheered lustily for President Lincoln, General
Shields, Meagher and Corcoran. The weather was rather unprepitious,
but nothing seemed to damp the ardor of the vast mass present.

It is Ireland's most sacred stretch of earth and one of the
important ancient landscapes in Europe. The Hill of Tara, with its
passage tomb, earthworks and prehistorical burial mounds, is the
mythical and ceremonial capital of Ireland, dating back 4,000 years.
But now the landscape in county Meath, north-west of Dublin, is
subject of a campaign to save it from what one archaeologist has
the "worst case of state-sponsored vandalism ever inflicted

That was Strongbow. It was an Irish "King" (warlord),
who brought him over to assist him in a battle with another Irish
(warlord) O'Connor. This started the long tortuous road of the English
in Ireland. Also it was Pope Adrian IV, not Hadrian. He wanted Henry
to invade for the purpose of reforming the church in Ireland. Henry
was the King of the Holy Roman Empire as well as King of England
Wales. Not all Irish were displeased at the English presence at
time. O'Connor killed Dermot. This was 1169 and O'Connor divided
spoils, Meath, between himself and O'Rourke his ally. Hence this
of West Meath. There is a good book on the History -"THE MAKING
IRELAND" JAMES LYDON. It is not very long and it's an

where towns and

1155 AD Pope Hadrian gave most of Ireland to King Henry II of
England. Well, so much for popes, says I!
