Tara

Modern scholars do not think that Tara was a court where the High Kings of Ireland lived, but a sacred royal site where the king would come for occasions of special significance. Tara's importance was emphasized by the O'Neills when they claimed the High Kingship in the era of Saint Patrick. The site and its significance form a key part of the story in the 'Tara' chapter of the first book of Edward Rutherfurd's Irish saga.




 

 

 

Did You Know?
The first escalator England had ever seen was installed at Harrods in London on November 16th, 1898 to much fanfare, fascination and fear ! The moving staircase was such a strange and scary experience for people that Harrods began offering smelling salts and Cognac at the top in order to calm people after their terrifying ride.
