Map of the Hill of Tara (Temair)

This map of the monuments on the Hill of Tara is based on an old map 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 pictures of the various monuments.

A 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.

NOTE: This map was used as the label illustration on the 2003 CD album "Two Horizons", by Moya Brennan. The map was used with permission of www.mythicalireland.com, and credited in the inlay card.
