TWO OMANIS IN: Tara, Co. Meath, Ireland
I had intended to take the train straight from Dublin to Co. Sligo, but in the end it all worked out for the best.
Entrance to Tara is free during daylight hours, and I suggest you leave off high heels unlike myself, as livestock are grazing, and it isn't really a shoe-friendly environment. Unless you want an Amy Adams via "Leapyear" moment.
The site consists of a large mound grave, as well as some examples of early Christian art, and the famous "La Fail" ---the legendary stone that is rumoured to sing if you are the rightful King. Similar to the Scottish stone of Scone, which sists in Westminister Abbey? Forgive me, my Scottish freedom movement knowledge is lacking.
My husband found both the view, and the size of the massive cattle, to be impressive.
