About Us

Tara Circle is a 501(c) (3) not-for-profit organization. 

The name “The Tara” was chosen for its symbolism. Tara dates to ancient Ireland, where it was the seat of the reigning kings. Described by historians as a beautiful and pleasant hill, Tara also held a great banquet hall and a meeting house for poets, historians, and musicians.

The image of the circle reflects our effort to bring all Irish organizations in the reign together to create a world-class facility for the Irish community. 


Ireland was settled relatively late in European prehistory terms with the first human settlements taking place around 6000 BC.  Since this time, Ireland has experienced many periods of invasion and changes, contributing to its rich history and heritage, shaping Ireland into the unique country it is today.
