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.

Until World War II, France was on the same time zone as London. After occupying the country in 1940, Germany forced France to conform with Berlin time, and this change has never been canceled.
