Hill of Tara
The Book of Tara
The Book of Tara is written by local and respected historian, Michael Slavin, and examines the many aspects and beliefs associated to the sacred Hill of Tara itself and why it was selected as the Ancient Capital of Ireland.
Tara is the heartland of Ireland's Celtic past. It is the site of St Patrick's confrontation with the druids and seat of the High Kings. Legend and history meet in Tara - the Stone of Destiny, which cries out only when touched by a true king, still sits at its summit. Centuries after Tara had been abandoned by Irish rulers, it was chosen as the rallying point for the United Irishmen of the 1798 rebellion.
