Hill of Tara, Co Meath

This was the ancient seat of power in Ireland, where the high Kings sat. There are a number of things to see on the hill (I hadn't the time :( ) such as the Stone of Destiny which was the coronation stone of the Kings of Ireland. It is also a place where the ancient Gods of Ireland are said to have dwelt. In the Early 20th century Israelites went there searching for the Arc of the Covenant and new theories published claim it was the capital of the lost nation of Atlantis! More information can be gotten here.

Thanks for the title suggestions on my pictures, by the way. I did use "Which is the real me?" only in Norwegian. :D

That's cool that you used one of my titles, I preferred the pictures of the post beforehand but the history of Tara is cooler

Ooh, Tara ... !! ;-)

Thanks for sharing this, and the historical info too - I hope that next time you're there you'll have more time to look around and, of course, take more pictures. :-)
