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.
