Come with us to Ireland’s Ancient Capitol. The Hill of Tara was once the seat of the High Kings of Ireland. Hear about the legendary feats of Fionn Mac Cúil and Cormac Mac Áirt. Hear about why Gráinne eloped and was hunted by her father’s warriors.
The more recent history of Tara is very much Ireland’s history and many of the seminal moments in our new nation’s road to independence have either happened at Tara or are associated with it.
