The Green Party has indicated that it will not be seeking to re-route the M3 motorway away from the Hill of Tara during the next five years.

Eamon Ryan, the party's new Minister for Communications, Energy and Natural Resources, said today that he and his colleagues tried to get the motorway re-routed during coalition negotiations with Fianna Fáil.

However, he said the Greens failed to win the argument.

Mr Ryan said the decision to construct the motorway alongside the Hill of Tara was a decision of the last Government and "this is a new Government".
