The Tara Circle, Inc. is a 501(c) (3) not-for-profit organization, that was founded to bring all Irish Organizations together to create a world-class facility for the Irish community. Formerly at the site of the historic Alder Manor and Elizabeth Seton College in Yonkers, New York, The Tara Circle encompasses the entire circle of Irish organizations with the benefit of providing comprehensive programs that serve to educate and further enrich Irish culture.

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