A mortal woman who became the disciple and lover of the immortal, Liam O'Rourke. She became a rabid Irish Nationalist under O'Rourke's tutelage, and he described her as having "the face of an angel, the heart of a lion." He thought enough of her to tell her what he was, and they were inseparable.

Tara actually believed so strongly in the Cause that she said, "If the Nazis had taken England, they would have left Ireland in peace." MacLeod, however, told her she'd have been in a slave labor camp, if she'd been lucky. When he refused their call to arms against the English, she sneeringly asked him if he'd forgotten Culloden, trying to use it as a prod for a man who was actually there, and he did not appreciate it. She would not hear him when he told her what they were doing would accomplish nothing, create nothing. He told O'Rourke "You've turned her into a fanatic who is going to get herself killed. And she only dies once."

She then left the men at their table and went to the bar to plant a bomb near British Commander in Ireland, Allen Roderick. Once she left the pub with O'Rourke and MacLeod, the bomb went off, and MacLeod tried to return to help the dying. O'Rourke stopped him, and the two men fought. Tara tried to get them to stop, to get Liam to run before the police got there, "I won't go without you!"

They were arrested, convicted and sentenced to life in prison. MacLeod said, "Tara spent the rest of her days in jail. O'Rourke could have escaped but he stayed there until she died."
