Contrary to appearances this name has nothing to do with the word Teamhair that occurs in Tara, Co. Meath, nor even with the Eng. word 'hill'.   Tara Hill is the third highest hill in the North Wexford area and the 1266th highest in Ireland. Tara Hill is the most northerly summit and also the most easterly in the North Wexford area.

Short Summary created by simon3, wicklore,  21 May 2015
There is space for 1 car to park at a gate without blocking it at T207 619 A. From here a nice track leads up through the trees and it is easy to use a couple of tracks to find the trig pillar and remains of a cairn at the summit. Ignore a reference to the ‘Green Link’ route on the waymarker post unless you have read an information board on a nearby road on the way to the starting point.
Gorey, Courtown and other villages of the North Wexford coast are visible from the summit, and there is a nice view out across the Irish Sea. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/998/comment/5757/
