drawn in the 1830s. It shows just how many monuments are situated
in the area. Some areas of the map are clickable and will open up

number of ancient stories relate how five great roadways radiated
from Tara. One story names them - Slige Midlúachra, Slige
Asail, Slige Chualann, Slige Dala and Slige Mór. One of these,
Slige Chualann, is shown on the map above. There are a number of
disused roads which converge at Tara, but it is not known if these
are the same routes mentioned in antiquity.
