Tara, county Meath

N 920 595 - Sheet 42


The remarkable Stone of Destiny or Lía Fáil: a very phallic granite pillar some 1.5 metres high, moved here to commemorate the dead killed in a skirmish during the ill-fated 1798 Rebellion.

In the background (to the N of the Lia Fáil) is "The Mound of the Hostages".












The top photo was taken before interesting enhancement in 2003.
