WHY is the controversial M3 road being built where it is, how was the decision taken, who was consulted, who benefits from the road? And now, with the EU investigating the discovery of new archaeological sites along the proposed route at Lismullen, this week An Phoblacht's ROBBIE SMYTH charts the history of decision making, lobbying and clashing political interests that are adding up to an embarrassing debacle that could ultimately destroy an irreplaceable link to Ireland's past history - the ancient seat of the High Kings of Ireland - and an untapped tourist resource.
