My Tara is a project which set about documenting a range of people’s experiences in relation to the Hill of Tara, County Meath. The process resulted in the production of a 96-page publication which exposes and reveals a series of encounters artist Michael Fortune experienced in and around the hill during 2013.

The material is diverse and includes photographs taken by the artist, combined with emails, accounts and images received from various people, young and old, over the course of the year. The project combines the ambition and vision of the Meath County Council's Heritage and Arts Office, and beautifully sheds light on one of the countries most important gems.


The publication will be launched by Cllr. Jim Holloway, Cathaoirleach, Meath County Council with guest speaker, Mr. Conor Newman, Chairperson, The Heritage Council at the Hill of Tara, Visitor Centre on Tuesday September 16th 2014 at 6.00pm 

Admission is free to the launch and everyone welcome. RSVP or 046 9097414 RSVP by September 12th 2014
